It hasn’t been long since Samsung announced the Galaxy Alpha. We had been hearing for quite a few months that the company was working on a smartphone with a metal body, that turned out to be the Galaxy Alpha. Recent reports have suggested that the Alpha isn’t the only metal touting device that Samsung will be releasing in fact it is believed to be working on as many as three new handsets built along the same lines. The SM-A500 is said to be one of them.
Purported specifications of the three rumored devices, believed to be carrying model numbers SM-A300, SM-A500 and SM-A700, have been leaked multiple times online. However Samsung is yet to confirm any of these devices.
Initially it was said that the Samsung SM-A500 is going to have a 5-inch 1280×720 pixel resolution display with a quadcore Snapdragon 400 processor from Qualcomm. 8 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front cameras were also rumored alongside 16GB of internal storage and a 2,330mAh battery.
Sammobile reports today that the company has still not locked down all of the specifications of these new devices, particularly the SM-A500, and that its still making changes to both hardware and software. Now instead of an 8 megapixel rear camera a 13 megapixel rear shooter is being rumored for this device apart from the latest TouchWiz user interface which first debuted on the Galaxy Note 4.
No changes have been rumored as yet for the other specifications but the possibility exists that Samsung might make some changes if the need arises. These smartphones are reportedly going to be released in the last few months of 2014.
