More premium Samsung Alpha series devices in the works

Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha represents a new direction in smartphones Samsung was previously unwilling to take for the most part. Instead of focusing on shoving every premium feature available into a cheap, plastic body, Samsung showed some restraint with the Alpha and threw some aluminum into the mix, creating a relatively high-end device with the build quality to match. And thankfully, it won’t be the last.

The Galaxy Alpha was the beginning of a new chapter for Samsung. According to SamMobile, Samsung has at least three more “A series” devices in the works. Going by the model numbers SM-A300, SM-A500 and SM-A700, the new Galaxy A phones will feature a variety of specs and come in at different price points, but all feature a similar focus on build materials and quality.

The A300 is slated to land with a qHD display, while the A500 and A700 will feature HD displays. All three devices will feature enhanced front-facing cameras, something that will set the A series apart from other Samsung devices.

SamMobile doesn’t think we’ll see any of the new A series device at IFA, but they will make an appearance before the end of the year.

    Anyone out there that’s had a metal phone, please tell me if it’s cold to hold? I had a metal flashlight that I tossed because it was too cold in the winter.

    I never use cases and currently have the Note 2 and have no problem with the plastic.

    I have a Note 3 and I won’t give any Samsung another look until they improve the pathetic lowlight/indoor photography and at the very least move the pathetic speaker to the front.

    Now if they will only cut down the bloat without people having to resort to rooting or buying the developer edition.
