Samsung's new smartphone has metal frame
August 14 , 2014
South Korean firm Samsung has announced a new metal-framed smartphone, calling it a “new design approach.”
The company had blamed a dip in last quarter’s profit (compared to the previous year) on the “slow global sales of smartphones.”
The new thinner metal frame of the Galaxy Alpha is being seen as an attempt to turn things around.
In China, one of the world’s major mobile phone markets, Xiaomi is now the best-selling smartphone manufacturer, research has revealed, highlighting the challenges Samsung faces in Asia.
