samsung logoBack in August, Samsung took the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. It was a mid-ranged device that feature a metal design which we guess was meant to silence the critics who lambasted Samsung’s decision to go with plastic for its mobile devices. We also learnt that the Galaxy Alpha is the first in the series and that more devices were expected.


Last we heard, there was an SM-A500 in the works and now according to a new benchmark sighting (via SamMobile), a certain Samsung SM-A3000 was spotted. If you were hoping for a high-end handset, it looks like the SM-A3000 might not be the phone for you as based on what we can see, it looks like another mid-range handset.

The benchmark reveals a 4.8-inch 960×540 display. The phone also looks to be powered by a Qualcomm quad-core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz and will come with 1GB of RAM, 5GB of onboard storage, a 7MP rear-facing camera, a 4.7MP front-facing camera, both of which are capable of Full HD video capture.

It also appears to be running on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. No word on when Samsung plans on announcing these new A-series of handsets, but SamMobile claims that their source has told them that a Q3 2014 launch is likely, so we guess we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled for more info.
