JAM Online TV: Samsung Galaxy Alpha, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and ASUS Zenfone 5 16GB

Last August 17 at JAM Online TV, I talked about Samsung’s newest metal-clad smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Alpha. It is the first Samsung Galaxy device to sport a metal frame which is a highly requested feature by Samsung fans since all Samsung Galaxy smartphones sport a plastic body. Another device that I featured was a leaked photo of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from GSM Arena. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, this device would sport a metal frame and a thin bezel. However, you should just take this news with a pinch of salt. And the last topic for JAM Online TV was the ASUS Zenfone 5. Yep, one of the hottest affordable phones to date and now, it comes with a 16GB variant. Check out JAM Online TV August 17 episode below.

There’s a 2GB of RAM, 8GB Internal Storage w/ MicroSD card slot and 8MP of camera. If you find the 8GB Internal Storage not enough then you might be happy with this news because the ASUS Zenfone 5 16GB variant will soon arrive in the Philippines but I was more surprised to know the price of the ASUS Zenfone 16GB variant. You only have to add P500 from its original price for the 16GB variant. Yep, the ASUS Zenfone 5 16GB will be priced at P6,999. Pretty interesting, Huh?
