We’ve known this for sometime now, that Samsung was working on a complete new line-up of a premium model, the Galaxy Alpha. Started with the Galaxy Alpha already launched and gone into the market. Well, now there is the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 furiously doing rounds in the leaks circles. And they look impressive. There is new changes though. Samsung looks to have dropped removable back cover in favour of a sturdy and beautiful looking smartphone. This will go well with critics of removable back cover and the exact opposite for those who stuck with Samsung for the choice of removing and carrying an extra battery.
What we have picked from AndroidMX twitter feed is actual live pictures of the swanky looking devices, in two colours black and white. The build is evidently aluminium frame and chamfered aluminium edges like the Galaxy Alpha. The protrusions at the corners seem to have been dropped in favour of a smooth curve. The photos which are showing the back and sides show that uniquely Samsung camera-lens arrangement. There is a slight variation between the two though as you will see in the photos.
The Galaxy A5 according to specs by Sammobile show the Galaxy Alpha A5 being a 5 inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, a 16GB internal storage, Snapdragon 800 processor, SIM tray with Nano SIM and a 2,330 mAh battery.
Galaxy Alpha A5 might come with a price tag ranging from $400-$450 and back shell made out of a unique material to keep costs down. It does manage to look premium as seen in the photos.
Galaxy Alpha A3 on the other hand, not exactly given expected specs is said to have an option for a Dual-SIM and LTE connectivity, and a $350-$400 price tag. To complete the range there is a Galaxy Alpha A7 also expected with a 5.5 inch screen, Dual-SIM option at a $500 price tag.
Do these stand a chance to overhaul Samsung’s reducing fortunes, considering the use of premium material, design revise and interesting price point? We will have to wait and see. Meanwhile, how about you share your opinion on these unreleased devices and what you think their impact will be. Do these look like something you want to spend your money on?
