Just last week we reported that according to speculation, there was a chance that the Samsung Galaxy J could be announced in Taiwan this week, and sure enough it has. Samsung has officially taken the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy J Android handset which will be seeing a release in Taiwan in a red or white finish. There is a blue finish but apparently that finish is limited to the Japanese market where the handset was originally announced in. The handset will be available in Taiwan starting from mid-December or early January and will cost around $740 off-contract.
As far its specs are concerned, this is pretty much the same phone from before. It will feature a 5” Full HD Super AMOLED display. It will also be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with 3GB of RAM accompanying it, 32GB of onboard storage with support for microSD for memory expansion, and will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The Galaxy J will also pack a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 2,600mAh battery to go with it. No word on whether the Samsung Galaxy J will see a release in markets outside of Taiwan, but for now it looks like it will only be available in Japan and Taiwan.
