Is the Galaxy J being teased for Taiwan in this Samsung video?

A Samsung teaser video is suggesting that the Galaxy J may be launched in Taiwan soon, although nothing is official just yet.
December 8, 2013

Samsung has posted a short video teaser on its Taiwan YouTube channel in which in hints a new Galaxy handset may be launched in the region on December 9.

Entitled “Just for you,” the 20-second video clip teases a smartphone that’s “just fit,” “just simple,” “just elegant,” “just fast,” and therefore “just for you.”

The extensive use of the letter J may indicate that we’re looking at the Galaxy J here, which could be launched officially in the region on December 9, at 1:00 PM – the time is taken from the Galaxy Gear that’s also briefly shown at the beginning of the video (related to the “just fit” part).

But there’s also more evidence pointing in that direction, as Engadget has discovered around the 8-second mark “a small inscription on the lower-right side of the phone: SC-02F, which is the model number for the Galaxy J:”


Furthermore, previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy J may be launched in other markets, and the handset has received certification in Taiwan. It’s not clear though whether the phone will also be launched in other markets in addition to Taiwan.

The Galaxy J is a Samsung smartphone exclusive to Japan, featuring a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD support, 13-megapixel camera with OIS and 2600mAh battery.
