Leaked brochure shows off Samsung Galaxy J, a smartphone tailored to Japan

Samsung Galaxy J

The Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 are already on the market, both of which are awesome phones. However, it seems that they’re not good enough for Japan. With all of the special features Japanese phones have, like TV tuners, it looks like Samsung is making a specialized version of their Galaxy S4 specifically for the country.

According to the leaked NTT DoCoMo brochure, this custom tailored phone will be called the Galaxy J and will come in a few colors, like white, pink and blue. The specs will be bumped up from the Snapdragon 600 offered in the Galaxy S4 to a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 and 3GB of RAM, just like the Galaxy Note 3. And the corners are more squared off, which looks quite nice. It retains the same 5-inch display of the S4.

Unfortunately, we don’t yet know when this device will come out, but Japan should get it fairly soon. NTT DoCoMo will announce their holiday lineup of smartphones on October 10, so we might hear more about this device then. Are there any folks in Japan planning to get this device?

        There is indeed something refreshing about it. Like a pink grapefruit.

    I like the design and the specs of the phone. Wish they would have released that in the US but can only imagine the outcry if they released it by all those feeling the s4 no longer works and got replaced so soon.

    The korean S4 (SHV-E330S) has Snapdragon 800 CPU and the TV antenna, but it has the same shape as the old S4.

    I’m in Japan and am using the S4 now (Docomo SC-04E)

    It has everything that Japanese phones normally have like OneSeg TV app, Osaifu Keitai mobile wallet for mobile payments, store cards and train passes.

    So basically this is just a spec bump with different colors and probably even more of Docomo’s battery draining crapware
