Samsung’s upcoming Alpha smartphone to feature a complete metal body

Galaxy Alpha Side

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha broke new ground for the company, mostly with regards to the design and the quality of materials used. For a company which is known predominantly for its polycarbonate or plastic smartphones, the Korean manufacturer took us by surprise by launching the device sporting a metal chassis and a premium design. However, the device wasn’t fully metal, with the back cover made of plastic to accommodate for the removable battery.

It is now being said that the next gen Galaxy Alpha smartphone, known as the SM-A500 internally, will feature a full metal body. The battery door will be non-removable apparently, which is a first for Samsung. The smartphone will reportedly consist of a 5 inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 400 quad core SoC, an 8-megapixel camera on the back with a 5-megapixel front camera, 16GB of internal storage and a 2,330 mAh battery.

The handset is expected to cover before the end of this month, so we might have a clearer picture of the device in the coming days. Despite featuring a premium design, the upcoming Galaxy Alpha smartphone will contain a midrange hardware inside, which could be a bit of a letdown for the fans.
