Samsung released a short 22-second clip on its Taiwanese YouTube Channel Friday and the internet has been swirling with rumors and speculation about it ever since. The video, entitled “Just for you” shows off a phone that appears to be the Galaxy J while displaying phrases like “Just Simple” “Just Elegant” and “Just for you”. The thinking goes that the excessive use of words that begin with J indicates that the Galaxy J is no longer a Japanese exclusive phone and will be released in Taiwan.
Engadget also pointed out that at a certain moment in the video the device’s serial number is displayed as “SC-02F” the Galaxy J‘s model number, all but confirming that the Galaxy J will be reaching Taiwan sometime in the near future. That is not all, there are a few more guesses that can be gleamed from the video.
In the opening moments the video shows off a Galaxy Gear watch with 13:00 Monday Dec. 9th displayed on it, leading some to speculate that the Galaxy J would be launching in Taiwan on December 9th, at 1pm. That time has come and gone, in Taiwan at least, and there is still no official announcement on either Samsung Taiwan’s official page nor its Taiwanese YouTube Channel.
The Galaxy J is a beast of a device. It features a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.6GHz, 3GB of RAM and a 13MP camera.
