Let’s go back again to talk about the Samsung SM-A500, one of the three new devices that are going to expand the Samsung Galaxy A series opened with the Alpha. Thanks to the certification of Chinese, we can see for the first time images of the smartphone and discover some technical features. The weight is equal to 126 grams and has a dimension of 139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7 mm. The software is based on the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat distribution, and moves the UI on a 5-inch AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. A complete specification is not lacking LTE, 13-MP camera with LED flash (5 MP front), 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD and a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon which could be either the 400 that the most likely Snapdragon 410.



Those who follow us will certainly have constantly noticed in our articles a few pointers, turned out to be exact, about the Alpha Galaxy and some features. If we have always stated the processor Exynos 5430 and not 5433 as the rumors are often associated with this device, also in relation to the price we are unbalanced” in early August. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha appears in UK at £ 549.

Now, with the official presentation, it was also announced the price and availability of the product: € 599 from September in over 150 markets around the world. It is a figure in line with the policies Samsung though obviously not low despite the excellent hardware built into the product. At the moment, however, we are waiting for the communication of the Italian price which, however, should be what we already inditato 10 days ago.

The announcement of Alpha Galaxy, Samsung is preparing to commercialize its first product to feature the new platform Exynos 5430 Octa Core made ​​to 20nm. The South Korean manufacturer do not lose the opportunity to announce some interesting specifications for its new range of processors. As we have seen from the benchmark of Alpha Galaxy, the new Exynos 5430 is an octa-core processor consists of four Cortex-A15 1.8GHz high-power and four Cortex-A7 1.3GHz, backed by the powerful GPU Mali T628MP6.

One of the most important changes compared to the previous generation of processors Exynos concerns the transition to a 20nm manufacturing process, which is able to ensure lower fuel consumption by 25% compared to previous 28nm, all without getting adverse effects on performance. The new Exynos 5430 supports the technology big.LITTLE HMP (Heterogeneous Multi-Processing) which allows all 8 cores to be active at the same time and introduces the ability to turn off individual cores are not needed in the early stages when high power is not required calculation (as happens on Qualcomm processors). Moreover, the new Exynos 5430 is able to handle resolutions WQHD (2560 × 1440) and WQXGA (2560 × 1600), even if Alpha Galaxy uses a screen “only” 720p, which bears in an extremely reduced on the GPU.


Recall that Galaxy Note 4 should use a processor from the same family, the new Exynos 5433, which should be adopted on all future smartphones and tablets top of the range Samsung, relegating 5430 to all products that are going to be placed in the step immediately previous to that occupied by the flagship of the south Korean company.

Day full of anticipation today for the Galaxy Note 4 After the alleged features and new pictures, here come two first video teaser posted by the manufacturer in China that “anticipate” the new phablet. Obviously the phone will not see but the name is confirmed, however, if it were needed, within the campaign published on support-cn.samsung.com/campaign/mobilephone/note4. A little less than three weeks to the event and all the details will be official.


After having announced in South Korea last month, Samsung seems ready to bring LTE-A variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Europe. First benchmark for international versions of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and Alpha Galaxy today and get further confirmation.

In addition to the code model, is again shown a screen of 5.1 inch Full HD unlike the Korean version which features a QHD. It should, however, remain the same Snapdragon processor 805 with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 420 GPU that remains is to understand the markets in which Samsung wants to commercialize this variant.
