Samsung Galaxy J reaches Taiwan after initial Japanese launch

updated 07:10 am EST, Mon December 9, 2013

Smartphone with Galaxy S4 exterior, Galaxy Note 3 interior expands reach

Samsung has expanded the availability of the Galaxy J smartphone outside of Japan, with the first recipient being Taiwan. Originally built for the Japanese market, the Galaxy J has received some slight alterations to allow it to work in Taiwan, such as adding support for local 4G LTE, with the rest of the device effectively remaining the same as when it was originally released.



Overall, the Galaxy J could be described as a Galaxy S 4 combined with the internals of the Galaxy Note 3. Inside the Android 4.3 device is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, reports VR-Zone, along with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display. On the back is a 13-megapixel camera capable of 4K video recording, a front-facing 1.9MP version, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a 2,600mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy J in a choice of red or white colors will be available between mid-December and early January for NT$21,900 ($740), while the blue version will remain as an exclusive in Japan for now. While it is not expected that the Galaxy J will be made available in the US or Europe in the future, the fact that it expanded availability from Japan to Taiwan could be a sign that the smartphone could still launch in more areas in the future.
