Samsung has two more Galaxy Alpha iPhone competitors cooking

Samsung may soon introduce two more Galaxy Alpha smartphones with real metal frames. Recently, specifications for the Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 leaked on the FCC’s website and now press renders have also surfaced. It looks as though these Alphas will feature the same hybrid design of plastic and metal, as well as mid-to-
low-end hardware.

The A3 is a 4.5-inch smartphone with a low resolution 960 x 540 pixel resolution screen. Meanwhile, the A5 is slightly larger with a 4.8-inch 720p screen. Both Alphas are powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, but the two phones have different amounts of RAM. There’s reportedly 1GB RAM on A3 and 2GB RAM on A5.

Internal storage also varies, with the A3 sporting 8GB and the A5 carrying 16GB. Luckily, reports hint that there will be a MicroSD card slot on both models for memory expansion. The first Galaxy Alpha did not have a MicroSD card slot, though, so it seems odd that these less powerful versions would come with the option.

As far as cameras go, the A3 comes with an 8-megapixel back shooter and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The A5 has the same front-facing camera, but the back camera jumps up to 13-megapixels. Both models come with 4G LTE connectivity and the A5 is said to have a 2,300mAh battery.

Press renders of the Galaxy Alpha A5 leaked to PhoneArena, showing a device that looks a lot like the first Galaxy Alpha. Both of the new Alphas are expected to launch soon, but it’s clear that neither phone will be the all metal superphone Samsung fans were hoping to see in the near future.
