Lately, Samsung has been rumored to be working on a new lineup of flagship devices with the first one speculated to be the Galaxy Alpha. The alleged smartphone is said to arrive with a partial metallic build. Now, the latest media reports have come up with more information regarding this smartphone.
Well, SamMobile has managed to grab live images of the Galaxy Alpha confirming the earlier reports that claimed that the device will use aluminum on the sides and faux leather on its back. This design language is similar to the ones we saw in Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 that will provide a better grip and premium feel. According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Alpha will come with a 4.8-inch display rather than 4.7-inch, as rumoured earlier.
As per the report, the Galaxy Alpha will be a high-end smartphone with a display that is similar to the one in the Galaxy S3. The other aspects that are said to arrive as a part of the handset are fingerprint scanner, nano SIM slot and 32GB of native storage space without support for external storage space. The Galaxy Alpha is also claimed to come with LTE-A support that will support up to 150 Mbps connectivity speeds.
For now, the details surrounding the other features and hardware of the Galaxy Alpha remain unknown, but we expect it to be announced sometime in August. Moreover, it is likely to see a limited release.
The report notes that the prototype of the device that has been leaked recently may not be the final design and it could vary at the time of launch.
