Samsung Galaxy Alpha pegged to go official on August 4th
Everyone is hearing about Samsung's plan to launch a metal clad smartphone sometime this year. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha that has been circulating in gossips lately appears to be an enigma. This situation is about to change as the time for all the mysterious knots to untie has arrived. In a recent development, SamMobile has revealed that the Galaxy Alpha will be officially unveiled on August 4th.
The previous reports claimed that the handset will be released by mid-August, but this advancement is sure to steal away the excitement of the Galaxy Note 4 that will be arriving in September.
Last week, the first live renders of the Galaxy Alpha hit the web tipping that the handset will sport a metallic frame and a plastic perforated back cover as in the Galaxy S5. The device appears to be smaller in size as compared to the flagship model as it is fitted with a 4.8-inch HD 720p display and include a fingerprint scanner that is integrated into the home button.
Other specifications on-board the Galaxy Alpha include a massive 32GB of internal storage space that cannot be expanded as there is no micro SD card slot. Moreover, the flash of the primary camera has been moved to the left of the snapper, whereas the speaker has been moved to the bottom as in the Galaxy Note 3.
