The Samsung Galaxy J is an intriguing crossbreed between the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3. The phone has a body made of metal and more rectangular form than other Samsung device. The device features a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 Super AMOLED display which is the same as the Galaxy S4’s. The rest of the specs, though, bring to mind the Galaxy Note 3 minus the S Pen.
The Galaxy J’s sturdy body hides a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU and 3 GB of RAM. Internal memory offers 32 GB of space for your content plus microSD slot for storage expansion. The phone packs 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,600 mAh battery, NFC and LTE connectivity. The Samsung Galaxy J runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean most likely upgradeable to 4.4 KitKat.
