This year Samsung Electronics pretty much failed to impress its fans with the Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone, hence the immediate launch of the Galaxy Alpha, which is probably Samsung’s best-ever built smartphone. Galaxy Alpha is the first of the many to come devices that will be released under the Galaxy A series name.
In fact, according to a recent listing by TENAA, the Electronics Certification Authority in China, Samsung will launch soon a new device dubbed Samsung SM-A5009 on the Chinese market.
TENAA’s website spills out the specs sheet of the Samsung SM-A5009. It appears that it comes with pretty much similar specs as Galaxy Alpha except its slightly larger in size – 139.3 × 69.7 × 6.7mm, weighs in at 126 grams and from the looks of it, it has a similar premium feel thanks to the its metal chassis that binds together the plastic body and the 5″ HD (1280 x 720 pixels) OLED display.
Samsung SM-A5009 packs a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU (likely a Snapdragon 400 chipset), 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (microSD card slot included), Android 4.4.4 with the latest TouchWiz UX, 13MP main camera, 8MP front-facing, we assume for all those selfie-addicts out there. This phone is GSM,CDMA and TD-LTE ready and it will be available soon in Black or White colours.
