Galaxy J

Galaxy S4-like device with Snapdragon 800 CPU

As teased late last week, Samsung has officially launched its new Galaxy J handset in Taiwan. The Galaxy J, which we've already seen launch in Japan, features a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB of RAM and an external design unlike many of Samsung's international products. Besides that it's essentially a Galaxy S4, complete with 5-inch 1080p SuperAMOLED display, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2,600mAh battery and 32GB storage expandable by up to 64GB via microSD. It's also running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Samsung's TouchWiz UI out of the box.

The Galaxy J will arrive in red and white variants over the next month on Taiwanese carriers, and off-contract it'll cost NT$21,900 (around $740). So it's a high-end Samsung phone at an expectedly high-end price point. But despite its hardware leg-up over most Galaxy S4 models (excluding the LTE-A variant which also carries a Snapdragon 800), we're not expecting to see the Galaxy J outside of Asia.
