In the Chinese social networking sites, photos appearing allegedly Samsung SM-A500, a new Korean smartphone company, the successor of the Galaxy Alpha. Will this be another Samsung mid-range phone?
The device weighs 126 grams and its thickness is only 6.7 mm. As far as technical specifications are concerned, it should be borne in mind that the SM-A500 is not a flagship, but a mid-range product, although the price may be suggesting otherwise. Still, we should not complain because it has a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen displaying 720p video. It also has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, although sources suggest that it may also be a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 instead of a 32-bit Snapdragon.
The amount of RAM is expected to be 2 GB and the usable memory will be 16 GB with the possibility to expand the microSD card.
The SM-A500 will be equipped with two cameras. The main camera has a 13-megapixel sensor, while the front camera will offer 5 megapixels. The battery has a capacity of 2330 mAh and the operating system will be Android 4.4.4. KitKat. LTE will also be available to provide fast access to the Internet.
Little is known about the housing. Surely there will be a metal frame, but for now there is no information as to whether the SM-A500 will have a full metal case. Samsung does not give any details at this time.
