While most smartphone vendors release maybe half a dozen new devices per year, Samsung makes a habit of adding new handsets on an almost monthly basis, and with the Galaxy Note 4's launch still in progress, press renders of the Galaxy A5 suggests that it too is on the cusp of launching. The A5, which will apparently hit the market alongside two other 'A' devices, looks reasonably similar to the Galaxy Alpha that the Korean company introduced back in August, and as per leaked specs, it appears that the new series will target the mid-range market with decent specs and enticing price points.
There's no doubt in our minds that Samsung's Galaxy Alpha smartphone will manage to capture a lot of consumer attention when it's released to market. Samsung's latest edition to the Galaxy smartphone range is a sleek and slender offering, and becomes the first Galaxy phone to ship with a high-quality metal frame. Great news for those who have previously shied away from Samsung smartphones due to their poor, plastic-infused build quality. It's great to see the Korean company finally upping its game from a manufacturing quality stance, but how does the new Alpha smartphone compare against Apple's purported iPhone 6? These beautiful, high-quality renders throw the two devices side-by-side in a battle for consumer adoration.
The as-yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the metal-clad Android phone that many are expecting to go head-to-head with the Apple iPhone 6 in a few weeks, and with a rumored August 13th debut, it's going to beat the Apple phone to market, too.
With the iPhone 6's announcement imminent, Samsung is said to be coming through with a contingency plan in the form of the Galaxy Alpha. Although not entirely comprised of metal, the outer edges are said to consist of some metallic composition, and as such, those with an eye for design are rather excited about it. Over the past week, a couple of leaks have given us some high-quality glimpses of said handset, and for a sense of perspective, has just been compared with Apple's flagship iPhone 5s.
Ever since, and even before Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy S5, rumors pertaining to yet another high-end smartphone line have been rife. There's talk of a feature-rich Galaxy S5 'Prime', which is being accompanied by further reports of a Galaxy Alpha, and although it's hard to determine whether these are two separate entities or indeed, one in the same, some new, high-quality photographic evidence of the latter has just emerged. Details, as well as those images, can be seen below.
For a good while now, it has been suggested that Samsung would be coming through with a device finished in a more premium, perhaps metallic material. The Korean outfit has stuck faithfully with polycarbonate through the Galaxy generations, and although the sales figures would suggest that, at a consumer level, this isn't a problem, there's definitely a growing faction of Samsung fans that would love something a little more substantial. With the likes of the iPhone and HTC One series having catered to those with a thirst for the stronger stuff, it now looks like Samsung will finally cave, and according to a new report, the so-called "Galaxy Alpha" will be announced next month.
