Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Samsung Galaxy A7 now rumored to have Full HD screen

Perhaps you've already had your fill of reports surrounding the premium-looking yet not so premium Samsung Galaxy A family the past few weeks. That said, however, most of the attention has been lavished only on the A3 (A300) and A5 (A500) models of the devices. This round, on the other hand, is dedicated to the still mysterious Galaxy A7, if only but a little. But worry not, because we still have one more rumor about the Galaxy A5 to go with it for good measure.

Aluminum unibody Samsung Galaxy A3, A5 leaked

We’ve been given the idea that Korean gadget giant Samsung is at least serious about dispelling the “myth” that it can’t make beautiful metal-bound phones. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha was the first in what now seems to be a whole line of phones with that premium metallic feel to it. The Samsung Galaxy A5 was the most recent one leaked, and another aluminum unibody phone now follows with the Samsung Galaxy A3.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha gets the iFixit teardown treatment

So we’ve been a bit disappointed with the specs of Samsung’s new “premium feel” device, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha – a device which marks the first time the Korean gadget giant has been willing to ditch plastic for a more “fruity” metal design. Maybe Samsung was doing an “anything you can do, I can do too” with Apple, hence a spec line that doesn’t really stack up to flagship level. Popular teardown specialists iFixit give the new metal-bound phone the full treatment.

Rumored Samsung Galaxy A series to have LTE connectivity

As we reported late last week, it's been leaked that Samsung will be launching three new phones in the Galaxy A series line, slightly lower-end, probably non-metal versions of the recently-launched Galaxy Alpha. Now, more details have reportedly surfaced, and if they are to be believed, all three smartphones will have LTE connectivity, a must-have now for devices, but also not something that lower-end phones usually tout.

First look at the Samsung Galaxy A5

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is one good looking phone, and that’s probably one of the best things we can say about it – it feels and looks like a premium phone, albeit having some middling specs. The rumored “A Series” smartphones from Samsung are expected to follow in the trail of the Galaxy Alpha, the first of which has arrived in the SM-A500, to be marketed reportedly as the Samsung Galaxy A5.
