Samsung SM-A500 phone joins A series with a full metal design [Specs leak]

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone was just the start and even more devices will be arriving with a metal design including the SM-A500 which is allegedly part of the upcoming A series from the South Korean brand. According to the rumor mill, there will be a total of three handsets in the said range and they will be available revealed in the coming weeks.

The Samsung SM-A500 is supposedly bigger than the Galaxy Alpha, but a mid-range releases. It will flaunt a complete metal body which means that the rear panel won’t be removable and there won’t be textured polycarbonate or faux leather finishes either.

If so, the handset may get a more premium look and feel, and we could anticipate a brushed design on the flip side. The display will be a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED panel and you’ll find dual cameras as well, 5MP front-facing and 8MP rear.

For processing power, the handset will gain steam from a quad core Snapdragon 400 chip and you can expect it to run on the latest version of Android available at launch. All of Samsung’s exclusive software enhancements including the Ultra Power Saver Model should be onboard, but the fingerprint sensor and hear rate monitor aren’t likely part of the blueprints.
