Samsung confirms plans to release a high-end smartphone with ‘new materials’

Samsung is the world’s biggest phone manufacturer, and Kim Hyun-joon, SVP at Samsung’s Mobile Communications division, has gone on record to say two new high-end smartphones will launch within the next six months.

According to Bloomberg, Samsung aims to release a device with “a large screen,” while the other will sport some sort of “new materials.” In addition to hitting the high-end customer, Samsung will also target the mid- to low-end market by selling devices with “enhanced specifications.”

These details are not too shocking, since the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to have a 5.7-inch display that extends to the sides so users can read messages from every angle. The “new materials” could be the 4.8-inch metal encased Galaxy Alpha that recently leaked online.
