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.
