A new Samsung Galaxy device has leaked and appears to be heading to Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo either late this year or early next year. It’s called the Galaxy J, and it’s looking like a mash-up of features from Samsung’s other high-end devices. It sports a full HD 5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 800 CPU, and 2 GB of RAM, like the Galaxy S 4. It also features a waterproof casing, like the S 4 Active, and the device is shaped like a slightly smaller Galaxy Note 3 (although there’s no S Pen here, unfortunately). It will supposedly have 32 GB of built-in storage plus a MicroSD card slot and a crazy 20.7 megapixel camera. Toss in a 3,000 mAh battery and you’ve got a Frankenstein device of every high-end phone Samsung has released this year. Oh, and it’ll be available in Coral Pink, Satin White, and Lapis Blue.
The Galaxy J looks like a really solid, high-end device, but I’m just not sure where this fits into Samsung’s portfolio. If it has all of the extra bells and whistles that the standard S 4 has, it seems like it would completely cannibalize S 4 and Active sales wherever this is released. On the other hand, if it’s lacking some of the more marketable features of the S 4 like the Air View stuff, it doesn’t make sense to get this device when you could just pick up a Galaxy S 4. Hopefully Samsung will make this device official and we’ll get a bit more info on it.
