Samsung Project J Details Emerge, Hints at Entire Suite of New Devices

samsung galaxy s3

According to previous reports, back when little was known about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 device, it was first referred to as Project J. As time went on, it was branded with the name Altius and given codename GT-I9500. That was all gravy, but now, new reports suggest that Project J is more than just a single device. If the new info pans out, we could be looking at a suite of new devices, including the S4, an S4 mini, and even some type of smartwatch/Pebble-like device. 

A list of accessories for each device has been leaked by SamMobile, giving us a peak at what we can expect from Samsung and Project J.

Project J Altius:

  • Clear Cover
  • Flip Cover
  • Protective Cover
  • Pouch
  • Extra Battery Kit
  • Battery 2600 mah
  • Wireless Charging Kit
  • HDTV Adapter
  • Headset

Project J Mini Serrano:

  • Clear Cover
  • Flip Cover
  • Protective Cover

Project J Active Fortius:

  • Arm Band
  • Bike Mount
  • Pouch

As we can see, if this info is to be trusted, the Galaxy S4 could come packed with a 2,600mAh battery, wireless charging, and all of their popular flip cover goodness. On top of it, this Active Fortius is what has everyone hyped up. We see there is an arm band, bike mount, and pouch accessory for it. Could this just be a second rendition of the Galaxy Pebble or could it be something a bit cooler, like a smartwatch type of device?

At this point, nothing is confirmed.

    So, this year is all about Project J vs Project X?

  • r0lct

    If they can deliver a 4″ and 5″ phone with the same specs that would do amazing things for their sales as they are holdouts for a 4″ flahship phone. If the mini is a stripped down version then it’s just more of the same as last year which isn’t a bad thing, but a missed opportunity.

    • Dylan Patel

      They can’t with the same specs, the only powerful small phone is iPhone 5, but it’s iOS so thats a no no.

  • Kisuk3

    Really like what Samsung is doing but if this Moto X phone materializes anytime soon I’m going to have a tough decision this summer/fall.

      I’ve been holding a Verizon upgrade since last april for something special

    • Dave

      Ditto. VZ is letting me discount upgrade after owning my GN2 for 2 months. I can sell it for a boat load of money an upgrade and still profit. Hard offer to turn down.

      I’m starting to get scared of the Nexus name though. I think that if Moto X isn’t everything we dream a Nexus to be, I’ll just give up on it all together. The Nexus 4 doesn’t scream quality. Google should be more careful on what they slap that name onto.

      • Dylan Patel

        Whats bad about the Nexus beside that they have no LTE and back is glass?

      • michael arazan

        Just an FYI, I’ve read two different sites for Tech that claim the Motorola X phone may be labeled as The Motorola Nexus X, but it was from a Google employee, not motorola, and even though it has the same name with Nexus, it may not be apart of the nexus Brand.

      • zurginator

        I’ve gotta say the N4 is probably the most premium feeling android device I’ve messed with — and that includes pretty much every phone in the last few years.

  • nexusplay

    Am I the only one here who hates samsung? From their crappy marketing ploys to their crappy phones. They just rub me the wrong way. Can’t wait for the Xphone, MOTO all the way baby!

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Hate is sort of a strong word for the company that is bringing Android into the life of millions of people. They might have dumb marketing campaigns in your opinion, but whatever they are doing, it’s better than what HTC/Sony have ever done for our community as a whole growth wise.

      Gotta show some love.

      • Hmm….

        Yes, but by the same logic, McDonalds has brought hamburgers into the lives of billions. Good thing?

        • MikeCiggy

          McDonalds is a great thing with moderate consumption. I only go one every few months because it tastes great for lunch but not healthy.

        • ToddAwesome

          Get in my belly!

        • r0lct

          Please explain to be how Samsung bringing Android as a platform into the main stream is analogous to McDonald’s hamburgers sales?

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          Wow. Fantastic comparison! – Said no one ever.

          • Hmm….

            Your logic states that simply because Samsung “is bringing Android into the life of millions of people” it is therefore something worthy “love.” The same exact logic would dictate that because McDonalds has brought hamburgers into the lives of BILLIONS it would therefore also be worthy of love. Think it through, Tim-o. Samsung may be doing great, but just because it’s being mass produced and mass consumed, does NOT mean it’s the best thing for Android.

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            I disagree. Whatever helps Android sell is what is best for Android. If this was Google making Android crappy with skins and all of that, I would be there with you, but it’s not. This is Samsung becoming an extremely powerful smartphone OEM all because they know how to make, market, and sell a device. Whatever gets more Android phones into the pockets of consumers instead of another OS, then that has my vote.

            Samsung is making Android a pleasant experience for millions of people, and while that continues to happen, I won’t have a problem supporting them. I am only saying this because I’ve used every phone out there and I continually go back to a Samsung. My family uses Samsungs too. If the devices are making people happy, then that’s a the bottom line. If McDonalds makes people happy, and fat pigs, so be it. That’s not my problem.

            The first guy said “From their crappy marketing ploys to their crappy phones.” That’s just a statement that really holds no true value except to himself. It’s his opinion. And this is mine.

            I have spent too much time on this! Back to work!

          • Hmm….

            You’re still missing the point. The logic does not follow from your original statement, which stated that ONLY for the simple reason that Samsung is making more phones than anyone else, then automatically that means it’s a good thing for Android. That does not necessarily follow. It MIGHT be a good thing, but not necessarily JUST because they make more phones.

            If Samsung were making cheap crappy Android phones that fall apart after a year, but still selling zillions of them,
            in that case it would NOT be good for Android in the long term. I’m not saying they do, but in that
            example, simply selling more could potentially lead to the watering down
            of the Android system and teach the masses that it should expect
            nothing better… like McDonalds does with hamburgers.That has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you or I like Samsung’s products or quality. Understand? McDonalds making more hamburgers than anyone does not make it the best hamburger, or even a good thing. That is an obvious example of where your original logic about Samsung would not follow. I am simply pointing out that you should be very careful when posing logical if/then statements, because they don’t always follow.

            I appreciate your second response (which was much less snarky and juvenile, and befits your position much better), however it does still miss the point I was making. There is also the danger of putting too many eggs in one basket… Have a good day there!

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            My suggestion would be to simply not look so deep into what I say. I am merely making some silly shallow points and they hold no more weight than anyone else’s if they’re in the comments section. ;)

            Thanks!

          • Hmm….

            Actually, since you represent the site, your comments do weigh more whether you want to take responsibility for that or not. The moment we decide we have nothing to learn from each other, is the moment we stop adding to society. There is nothing particularly deep about pointing out the incongruity of a statement, nor should it be beneath anyone to accept constructive criticism. Furthermore, seeing one of the site’s staff resorting to snide petty retorts might explain the increasingly juvenile atmosphere of the comments section of the site, and most likely the resulting demographic of its readers. My suggestion would be to take responsibility for what you write, no matter where it might be.

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            I don’t think our comments are all that juvenile when compared to others I see and I don’t even know why you always choose to target me whenever I have something to say. If you are looking for an upscale comment battle, you’re talking to the wrong guy. I am here for myself and I will speak my mind if I so choose. Whether you think my comments are snide/petty/immature/juvenile or biased, that ain’t my problem. I’m here to have fun and enjoy Android. I don’t even understand your original point about McDonalds, so again, we’re merely wasting each other’s valuable time.

            Good day!

          • Hmm….

            “Wow. Fantastic comparison! – Said no one ever.” That’s not snide or juvenile in the least. Always target you? Sensitive much? I frankly don’t remember ever responding to any of your comments in the past. If I did, they weren’t memorable. Evidently, I’m not dealing with someone capable of understanding basic logic, and who takes no responsibility for his own actions. Good luck with that. People have been fired from real jobs for much less. A simple and mature query for clarification of my statement would have sufficed if you didn’t understand the comparison.

          • Skittleoid

            Shut up Hmm…. Stop trying to boast your intelligence with your syntax and though out lines. This is a frikin comment section where anyone is allowed to comment and is seen as equal. By the way your comparison sucked and made no sense. Please just stop sir. You are lost in your own words. Good day sir!

          • Hmm….

            Your reading comprehension might improve if you get a dictionary and some big boy pants, and lay off the Skittles.

            Haha! Darn my text correction engine. I was reading Catcher in the Rye at  the time or around the time that I read your comment. Sorry looks as if I went a little “Holden Caulfield” on you. You seemed very “phony” at the time. I will lay off the skittles if you lay off the heroin. :D Haha happy Valentine’s Sweet heart. <3

        Samsung is taking Android and making it their own. They can’t wait for the day to cut out Google, which is why I am so happy Google bought Motorola. Samsung is giving consumers a decent experience but all in the name of Samsung, not Android. I recall an ad that they had with the S3 and Iphone 4s I think. It was listing the differences and it had a bunch of crappy samsung software listed. I mean really, you don’t list the amazingly powerful Google services that are built in to the phone, instead you push S voice. You have to realize Samsung may be pushing Android the hardest, but they can also do the most damage to Android.

    • JoshGroff

      I don’t like the glossy plastic they use, or their phone designs, but I don’t hate them specifically.

    • http://twitter.com/Rkahla Rob Kahla

      crappy phones?? I understand your disdain for the ad’s, or marketing ploys, but they make ANYTHING but crappy phones… Some of us actually like plastic cases on the phone, as they don’t get destroyed everytime you bump them with your keys or drop them. None of the android manufactors actually bother me, outside of HTC’s desire to put batteries in there flagship devices from 2009, but I still like the products.

    • mike mcginnis

      I dont hate samsung, i just hate everything they make and their user interface

    • MikeCiggy

      Not a fan of the S3 at all. But the VZ Gnex is the best phone I have ever had and is still my daily driver. I hope they move away from their comfort zone with the S4 and try to really wow people. The s3 and it’s plastic and gigantic home button aren’t my cup of tea. That xperia Z from sony is looking might fine though.

      • Skittleoid

        I didn’t think the home button was either, but hey it’s not bad and especially when the light shines on it and the brushed blue looking metal effect is seen. So nice. The plastic feel is nice and smooth. My phone doesn’t have to freeze my hands anymore (droid x) :D The plastic also allows for some fine round edges that allows for ultimate comfort when gripping my phone. I see though how some people wouldn’t think it is their cup of tea, but hey I didn’t think it was mine either! :)

    • r0lct

      I used to hate on Samsung too because of the Fascinate, but a lot has changed since then I think people like you either haven’t used a recent Samsung phone or never used one at all.
      GNex – Great phone
      Note 2 – Great phone

      Are they as solid as a Moto phone? Maybe not. But if you’re making phone purchases based solely on a single criteria then you’re likely living in a fanboi bubble.

      • Big_EZ

        I was a Motorola fanboy all the way, until I got the Note 2. It is just as good or better in every aspect except build quality. The radios are just as good, the software is better, the hardware isn’t behind the times like Motorolas latest phones. I almost waited for the Motorola X phone but I’m glad I didn’t, Motorola will be hard pressed to win me back.
