Now that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is available, the company is working on the next wave of hardware, which is believed to be the A family. SamMobile has been able to take a quick peek at what Samsung may have up its sleeve with the SM-A500 as the first of three smartphones in the new A series. This device (pictured above) is said to launch as the Samsung Galaxy A5, a mid-range handset.
It's clear that Samsung would take its Alpha design further, especially given that the new aesthetics were well-received by consumers. The Galaxy A5 is not going to be full-body plastic, nor metal. According to SamMobile's source, Samsung is set to use a material that mimics the cold touch of metal, but maintains a low production cost and a somewhat premium feel.
Specifications are believed to include a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 13-MP shooter, latest version of TouchWiz (check the Galaxy Note 4), Snapdragon 400 CPU, 2,330 mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage (expandable through MicroSD) and a 5-MP front-facing selfie machine.
