Samsung is set to unveil two high-end phones in the span of the next six months, according to Korean firm’s senior executive. Samsung’s VP Kim Hyun-joon was quoted as saying that the firm will launch a smartphone with a “large display” while the other device will be built with “new materials”. Kim was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying that Samsung was also planning to launch many other devices “in the mid-to-low-end segment with enhanced specifications.”
Speculations are rife that the large-screened phablet could be the Galaxy Note 4 and the smartphone with new materials in none other than the Samsung Galaxy Alpha which was leaked last week. According to the reports, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is going be a stunning device with a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display in addition to a 16MP back and 4MP front camera. It is likely to be powered by a 64-bit processor (which might be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810) and 3GB of RAM.
As for the other smartphone made up of “new materials,” it could be the 4.7-inch Galaxy Alpha featuring a metallic frame. The device’s home button may have a fingerprint scanner integrated into its home button as seen before in Samsung Galaxy S5.
