I live in Japan and I would like to get these 2 phones but both of them is sold here with Google Android 2.3.7 Japanese OS.

I was wondering if it possible to change that into a regular English version? If so, how to do that in detail, please explain as I am new to this.

No need to change - language can be changed within the OS. My only tweak was installing a better English keyboard from the Play store, since the stock Samsung one isn't very good.

OS might not have all the languages. – roxan Oct 28 '12 at 4:37
My experience (in Korea, not Japan) is that this is correct. I've never seen an Android phone sold in Korea that didn't have English as an option in Settings->Language & Input->Language. I expect Japan to be the same. – dotVezz Oct 16 '13 at 16:56
