It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha SM-G850 that carries the credits for being the first metallic Android smartphone from the South Korean tech titan will be getting an affordable sibling. Well, latest reports come up with the details regarding an unannounced smartphone called Samsung SM-A500.
According to SamMobile, the Samsung SM-A500 is a mid-ranger that comes with a premium look and feel as it is clad completely of metal. This could sound unbelievable as even the top tier offerings from Samsung including the newly launched Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge arrive with metallic frame and faux leather back cover instead of a complete metallic build.
Reportedly, Samsung SM-A500 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset housing a quad-core processor and 16 GB of default storage capacity. The device is speculated to include a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels.
In terms of imaging, it is claimed that the Samsung SM-A500 will feature an 8 MP primary camera that is supplemented with a 5 MP front-facing unit. Despite being water proof and dust resistant, the yet to be announced Samsung smartphone is likely to feature a 2,330 mAh battery along with Ultra Power Saving mode.
If the existence of such a mid-range smartphone with a premium appeal is true, it will definitely help Samsung in achieving a good position in the competitive market.
