Samsung video tease shows Samsung Galaxy J, not metallic Samsung Galaxy S5
It really seemed for a few minutes as though Samsung had posted a video showing a few seconds of a metallic Samsung Galaxy S5. After all, with the tag line "Just for you," it seemed that the Korean OEM was acknowledging all of those people who asked the company to drop the plastic for the next iteration of its flagship Android phone.

But a number of things put the kibosh on those thoughts. What we are looking at is the Samsung Galaxy J for Taiwan. The first clue is the constant use of the letter "J" in the teaser. Just fit, Just Simple and Just elegant are three examples. Also, the video is from Samsung's Taiwan subsidiary. Taiwan is where the Galaxy J was recently certified. Lastly, as published elsewhere, at the 8 second mark of the video, a tiny model number can be seen. It reads SC-02F which happens to be the model number of the Samsung Galaxy J.

Hey, the Samsung Galaxy J is nothing to scoff at with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU expected under the hood along with 3GB of RAM and support for LTE-A. We earlier described it as a cross between the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so it comes from pretty good stock, wouldn't you say? As far as an unveiling date, the Galaxy Gear at the beginning of the video reads December 9th which is this coming Monday.

1st of all they need to stop saying "not 5s" because it's too early to announce the s5

It's clearly NOT S5 , and it's written - coming soon.

It's JUST FOR YOU iMorons, so to shut up.

PA:"it seemed that the Korean OEM was acknowledging all of those people who asked the company to drop the plastic...." blah, blah.

WHO ARE, those 'people", PA? You the tech media and all other iboys bashing Samsung, pretending that care about Samsung, not to bankrupt??? ROTFL

If Samsung gives you sealed tin-can "premium" handicap crap(as you were whining for), let's see how many of you will trow the iphones to buy it?

This is all propoganda from media tech sites. I'm beginning to think that they are not for the common consumer. They are in the industry to muster false info in order to feel powerful enough to change a course.

Two manufacturers are killing. Samsung and Apple. Apple has one business model and Samsung a different one. With other manufacturers going metal with very little success, Samsung is leaving the gap wide open for those that didn't want Apple' or other manufacturers ways. With Samsung obviously being the most dominant phone manufacfurer around the globe, maybe the others manufacturers should rethink their thought process. And the tech sites as well.

S4 LTE-A does. But neither the s600 or exynos regular S4.

hm i'm curious to see how elegant and refreshing the Galaxy S5's design will be. Wonder if it'll be similar to the Galaxy J.

+1 Yes I hope they change the look of touchwiz and also make it smoother though with all those features and samsung apps/bloatware... it might be difficult lol.

Tried the Note 3? TouchWIZ doesn't slow it down any.

Yeah, it only took 50% more RAM than any other high end device and the most powerful mobile SoC released this year to eliminate the lag. So, any device with less than 3 GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 800 will lag on the current version of Samsung's Touchwiz, which is the case for every single Samsung device except for the Note 3 and Note 10.1. That is not okay. You shouldn't have to be required to buy the best device currently available to have a good experience.

I haven't tried the note 3 unfortunately, but I would love to just like I would love to have the rest of the latest flagships. I'm coming from Samsung Galaxy S(1), Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Samsung Galaxy Note II. I've heard that the note 3 is lag free which makes me really excited since all the other devices did have lag here and there just as Berzerk000 explained.

Are you joking, or is appeasing brainwashed victims of Apple's marketing and tech site bottom feeding tirade seeping into retardation now? Those Xperia, iPhones and Lumias all seem to be things you cut out of your own little fantasy world of delusion.

No one "go bananas" iBoy. Take it easy.
Sealed tin-can is not for us. It's for you. Giving you chance to experience better OS, freedom, and functionality, Because, as the tech media said- you can not live without cheap aluminum tin can, and you hate SD and swappable battery.

---"it seemed that the Korean OEM was acknowledging all of those people who asked the company to drop the plastic for the next iteration of its flagship Android phone."---

I would like to know the source of this information please. I personally, know of no one that asked Samsung for this.

I believe this is manipulation of media sites. We consumers could easily argue that with millions upon millions of Samsung phones being sold, polycarbonate doesn't seem to be a problem. This doesn't appear that "all of those people" are asking for metal bodies.

As someone that had been in media for many years, I'm asking these tech blog sites to quit trying to brainwash readers into false requests.

To further iterate, I would like to go on record that I personally wrote to Samsung and commended the direction of keeping their phones consumer friendly in terms of functionality and accessibility to key components. Not following status quo. I also pointed out their success to sales as holding that stance. Since I represent the common consumer, I decided to leave other manufacturers and move to Samsung for this reason.

So once again tech sites, quit the mind games of self-gratification. How many of you would purchase a Samsung now just because they went metal?
