Samsung video tease shows Samsung Galaxy J, not metallic Samsung Galaxy S5

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.
