HTC J Officially Unveiled, Launching this Summer in Japan
HTC J was leaked just days ago and it looked very interesting, especially because it had both Android 4.0 preinstalled and Beats earbuds bundled. The official HTC Japan website was responsible with the leak days ago and while the product was pulled from the site quickly, now it’s very much official.
The handset has been announced for release during the summer of 2012 on the Japanese market. Sadly, there’s no trace of a launch in other countries right now. Basically, this model looks like a modified version of the HTC One S with a slightly changed design and extra headphones. The phone runs Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0, packs a 4.3 inch qHD OLED screen and uses a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 CPU, just like the HTC One XL model, for example. It also has 1GB of RAM and an 8MP camera at the back, plus 1.3MP front shooter.
HTC J provides 4G WiMAX connectivity and is once again a Beats Audio branded unit. Pricing info is not available, but what we do know is that local carrier KDDI will release this model. I guess we’ll just have to be happy with the HTC One XL and One S models for now…
