According to a new report from the often reliable SamMobile blog, Samsung is about to follow up its recently introduced Galaxy Alpha smartphone with more high-end devices under the “A series” family. The report points to evidence that the Galaxy Alpha, which received much attention for its metal body and high-end specs, is just the first device with three more on the way soon:
Three devices will be part of the initial launch, carrying model numbers SM-A300, SM-A500, and SM-A700, and will cover various price points. The SM-A300 will come with a qHD (960×540) display, while the other two will come with HD displays… The SM-A500 is already listed on Samsung’s mobile site, confirming the HD resolution and the fact that it will run on Android 4.4 KitKat.
The report continues by claiming that the devices mentioned above will be similar in design to the Galaxy Alpha with “some form of metal in their construction” and also higher-end camera specs compared to many of its other Galaxy family devices.
Citing sources, SamMobile says you can expect announcements for the new A series devices in the coming weeks, but that a launch will happen sometime during Q3 of this year. Samsung is expected to officially unveil its Galaxy Note 4 at IFA in Berlin early next month, but we’ll have to wait and see if it decides to give some stage time to the new A series phones as well.
