As if we should be surprised, Samsung is reported to be readying a variation of its Galaxy Alpha smartphone. According to SamMobile, a Samsung SM-A500 figures to be a mid-range take on the aluminum-clad handset experience.
The most interesting thing we’ve learned from our source is that the SM-A500 will have a full metal body, without a removable back cover. If true, this means the phone won’t have the new faux leather back…
Specifications are alleged to include a 5-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, and 16GB internal storage. Cameras are expected to be 8-megapixels on the rear and 5-megapixels around front. Other details include a microSD expansion card slot and nano SIM card slot.
It’s said that this device will skip out on some of Samsung’s recent sensors (fingerprint, heart rate); the device is not expected to be waterproof.
