The Samsung Galaxy Alpha turned a lot of heads when it was announced earlier this month. Thanks to the metal frame, it got a lot of attention. Unlike other Samsung products that have all-plastic bodies, the Galaxy Alpha is a welcomed intervention in Samsung’s design philosophy.
However, recent reports have revealed that Galaxy Alpha is not the only handset which is part of this intervention. According to a new report from SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is only one of the first smartphones in a new line of products from Samsung which may be called ‘A’ series.
The Galaxy Alpha has been surprisingly prone to leaks, like none other in its range. The phone looks like what an arrange marriage between Apple’s iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S5 might lead to. The phone as expected is made of a metal frame and boasts an Octa-core chipset.
