Samsung SM-A500 detailed: Full aluminum body, no removable battery
After Samsung unveiled their first metal-clad smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, the Korean OEM seemed be hitched on to their new trend as people’s positive reaction to the design of the smartphone showed the idea was a massive success.
Samsung loved the metal chassis design so much that they even ported it to their Galaxy Note lineup, and who knows if next year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 will inherit the design.
But all that’s by gone, let’s take a look at the Samsung SM-A500, a Galaxy Alpha-like smartphone which is set for debut later this year. Details of the unannounced device was earlier posted on this site after it spilled on benchmark results.
The Samsung SM-A500 is said to be covered in full aluminum unibody build, with no option for a removable cover, thus, a non-removable battery is probable.
If that turns out to be true then it means that Samsung us swallowing it’s own words. Earlier in July, the Koreans labeled Apple users as “wall huggers” for spending too much time charging their phone’s non removable batteries while it was quick to praise the Galaxy S5 for having a swappable battery.
The Samsung SM-A500 is expected with a 4.8″ HD screen, 2GB of RAM, 12MP/5MP camera, and at least 5.1GB of free memory available. The phone is likely to have a microSD card slot considering it’s rather small in-built storage.
