The Samsung Galaxy J, a Galaxy S4 LTE-A version with a metal body, has launched in Japan and following a number of leaks it is now official for Taiwan. Here's the first promo video from Samsung Taiwan:
The phone, which presumably is here to test the waters for a metal Galaxy S5, costs TWD 21,900 unlocked ($740) and will be available next week in Red and White. The Samsung Galaxy J will also be available on contract with the four major Taiwan carriers starting at TWD7,990 ($300) with TWD 1300 ($45) monthly tax.
The Galaxy J packs a 5" 1080p Super AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 800 chipset (quad-core Krait 400 @ 2.3GHz, Adreno 330), 3GB RAM (rather than 2GB on the regular S4 LTE-A) and a 13MP camera.
Thanks to Rohit for sending this in!
note 3 is like a brick. no, thanks.
Finally samsung produces phone with Metal casing.I bought lot of phones like IPhone 5s-HTC One and never bought any Samsung phones coz it looks cheap and doesn't feel right in hand.It's time for Samsung gains good position in Smart phone market.
But the one that functions the best and fits best in hand would be the S4. Home button, thinner, more rounded, more optional functions/features, better display, and great button placement on sides. The ergonomics are top notch.
