HTC J, a slightly modifid One S, will go on sale in Japan courtesy of KDDI on May 25
At first glance, the Japan bound HTC J doesn’t seem like anything that we’ve seen of late put out by the Taiwanese based manufacturer, as its design style is undeniably different from what we see with HTC’s One series. Nevertheless, the HTC J is actually a slightly modified version of the HTC One S, as it’s tailored specifically for Japan’s second largest network carrier in KDDI.

In fact, the Android flavored smartphone with Ice Cream Sandwich, will be made available one week from today starting on Friday, May 25th. Looking at the accompanying rendered image of the smartphone in question, it’s flaunting a red paint job, but more importantly, it doesn’t have a direct appearance to the One S.

Rather, the HTC J’s similarities are all found under the hood, as the device sports most of the same specs to the HTC One S. Specifically, it features a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, all of the cool camera enhancements found with HTC Sense 4.0, and Beats Audio support. However, it’s worth noting that the handset will have additional goodies in the form of WiMAX support for the carrier, Japanese mobile wallet services, mobile TV, and an IR port too.

It's just a modified version of the One S for Japan, just a different design. They will release devices only based off of their One series, and this is based off of the One S.

I'm digging the way that looks compared to the original One S.

If they put 2gigs of ram in this phone, i'm gonna be pissed. I know this is off topic. But I can understand, (to a extent) Scamsum useing the duel core S4 in the US. Because of Lte. But they could have at least given us more ram. Like they did with Japan. & all that talk about not needing more than 1 gig on a phone is BS. My Nexus would be much faster & run alot smoother, if it had more ram. & The SGlll has more features. As well as better graphics, & touch wiz. That will likely need more ram than the nexus does.

I highly doubt there's gonna be 2 gigs of RAM in this. But you're right, it's a shame the U.S doesn't have a mobile device with 2 gigs of RAM yet. And I still hold it against Samsung for not making their quad Exynos to support LTE. Though the S4 is a great processor and can handle everything the GS3 does, it's still nice to have quad-core, plus it's better marketing. Samsung is making big mistakes.
