Meet Samsung's metallic SM-A500: it's as thin as the Galaxy Alpha
posted by Florin T. / Sep 17, 2014, 11:58 PM
Running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, the SM-A500 sports a 5-inch AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, further featuring: LTE, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support (up to 128 GB). The processor that’s powering the device is a quad-core 1.2 GHz one, but it’s not clear if it’s a Snapdragon 400, or the newer and faster Snapdragon 410.
Samsung will probably announce the SM-A500 pretty soon. It will be interesting to see what name the handset is going to have (since SM-A500 is just its model number). Until we hear more on this, let us know if you like what you’re seeing thus far.

Because it has a Snapdragon 400 or 410. They aren't powerful enough to push a 1080p display.

What path? Better body? Maybe. But from what I've around this thing is basically a full metal bodied Galaxy Grand 2 refresh (if it's SD400 inside) with a 270mAh LESS batt capacity? And timing wise this is going head to head to Lenovo Vibe Z2 which already auto win at various spec diffs...

I actually started out with a Samsung Behold..and it was great. My second Samsung device is my tab pro and it is amazing as well. Though I love my tablet....I still wish it wasnt made of plastic...it feels cheap and was probably cheap to manufacture....just expensive due to marketing and all the cost that hits Samsung in making it a product. I want Samsung to move towards metal.
