Despite Samsung being well-known for their choice of bad feeling and cheap plasticity materials, it seems as if they are finally going to release a smartphone which is made of metal.
For a very long time people have constantly suggested that Samsung should move over to the more premium feeling materials on their tablets and smartphones, however only now have they decided to listen.
Samsung have confirmed that their brand new phone will be named the ‘Galaxy Alpha’ and will contain mostly mid range parts.
There are a few questions surrounding the topic of why Samsung haven’t tried to make this phone a flagship in terms of the specifications packed inside. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha seems to be more of a show of design and the “New Standard for Samsung Galaxy Design” rather than what Samsung can do in terms of specs.
Even though Samsung opted for mid range specifications inside, they did end up placing a fingerprint sensor in the home button, as well as the heart rate sensor on the back. A similar soft back from the Galaxy S5 is also present on the Alpha.
To match the new design there are also a range of premium looking colours – Charcoal Black, Scuba Blue, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver and Dazzling White. While pricing is still unknown, a launch date of September has been set.
