samsung galaxy alpha white official

Samsung unveiled its first-ever metal build smartphone last week in the shape of the Galaxy Alpha. And today it looks like it's just the first in a wave of handsets with premium constructions.

The Galaxy Note 4 is also rumoured to have an "all-metal design", according to a Sina report, and – looking further afield – so is the Galaxy S6.

The Note 4 will launch at IFA in Berlin at the start of September. Last week, its specs leaked online.

If they're on-the-money, we're looking at a 5.7-inch screen with a QHD resolution – that's 2,560x1,440 pixels, which is on a par with the 5.5-inch LG G3.

The spec sheet says the Note 4 will come in two versions – each with a different processor – and up to 64GB of internal storage.

A metal chassis would make it seem more premium, which is what you'd expect when you're spending upwards of £500 on a device. Previous Samsung flagships have been criticised for their cheap-feeling plastic backs.

The Galaxy S6, meanwhile, isn't expected until next year.

Samsung will reveal all at its press conference on September 3rd. That's just over two weeks away, so there's not long to wait. Stay tuned for more news as we get it.
