Samsung recently announced the Galaxy J, an Android smartphone that deviates from the design language of previous Galaxy phones because it features a brushed metal finish, although it’s not necessarily made of metal. Samsung phones are made of plastic and this is one of the arguments used by iPhone or HTC One fans. The Galaxy J, although not made of metal, appears metallic and this could give us an idea where future Samsung flagships are headed, design-wise.
The Samsung Galaxy J has industry0leasding specs that include a 5-inch 1080p screen, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM a 13-megapixel rear camera and LTE connectivity. The phone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.
In a promo video, Samsung showcases the elegant design of the Galaxy J and highlights its “metallic” rear cover.
The Samsung Galaxy J is only available in Japan and Taiwan for now. There is no word yet as to its international launch or as to its availability in the Philippines. Pricing details have not been announced yet but this could go as high as P30,000 when it launches in the Philippines.
