Samsung could launch metal Galaxy Alpha in August

Samsung could finally be prepping a metal smartphone for launch next month. South Korean site ETnews is reporting that Samsung has a metal smartphone dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Alpha that could be coming soon. While specs and details of the phone aren’t known, the Galaxy Alpha will reportedly be a premium offering that will stray from Samsung’s typical plastic design and instead feature a metal outfit.

We suggest taking this with a grain of salt, as rumors of a metal Samsung phone have been around for years and we never end up seeing such a device materialize. The time frame also doesn’t line up with Samsung, which usually launches a flagship in spring and in fall. If Samsung did launch the phone, it would likely be a niche device – like the Galaxy Round – that would only be sold in certain markets like South Korea.

If it does become reality, will you be interested in a metal Samsung smartphone?
