The next Samsung product has been spotted.
Samsung firmware and upcoming hardware tracking website SamMobile has managed to get their hands on pictures of the Galaxy A5 (SM-A500F), the first in a line of a new A series of phones.
The Galaxy A5 does resemble the recently launched Galaxy Alpha, a mid-range Samsung phone that is targeted for the more fashion conscious users.
SamMobile had earlier reported that the Galaxy A5 will feature a fully metal chassis, but their inside source claims that it is neither metal or plastic, but a new material that “feels cold in the hand.”
In terms of specs, the Galaxy A5 is expected to have a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and a 5 mega-pixel front camera, and a 2,330 mAh battery.
The phone is also expected to have the latest version of TouchWiz that is also featured in the Galaxy Note 4 phablet, and should run Google Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Orders for Samsung Note 4 Phone Begin Friday
NEW YORK—Samsung says U.S. wireless carriers will start taking orders for its large-screen Galaxy Note 4 smartphone on the same day larger iPhones go on sale.
The Note 4 will be available on Oct. 17. Orders will be taken beginning Friday. It has a screen measuring 5.7 inches diagonally, slightly larger than the 5.5 inches on Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus. The regular iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch screen.
Unlike the iPhone, Samsung’s Note phones come with a stylus for note taking. The Note runs Google’s Android system and has Samsung-produced extras such as the ability to show multiple apps on the same screen at once.
Samsung also is making the Galaxy Note Edge with a side screen to display weather information, clocks and other information. The company hasn’t provided details about U.S. availability.
