Samsung Galaxy J officially announced, bringing a Note 3 and S4 mix to Japan

As expected, Samsung officially took the wraps off the tenth Galaxy smartphone for this generation. The Samsung Galaxy J was unveiled at a DoCoMo event on Thursday, a smartphone headed for the Japanese market specifically. It's an interesting smartphone, taking design cues from both the well-established Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. 

The Galaxy J will be in customers' hands by the end of October, bringing Android 4.3 and Samsung's TouchWiz technology to the party. The design of the handset takes the 5-inch Full HD display like the Galaxy S4 ,with the rounded off look of the Galaxy Note 3 - leather not included. Coral Pink, Satin White and Lapis Blue are the colours the Galaxy J will ship in, all packed with a black front. 

Design is great, but aren't specifications what we really care about? You'll find a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, 150Mbps Xi LTE support, 13-megapixel rear-camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2600mAh battery and NFC. Think Galaxy S4 form-factor with Note 3 internals. 

Hopefully Samsung will release the Galaxy J worldwide, but if we had to guess, the "J" in its name indicates a Japan-only device. Nonetheless we can gawk in envy.
