Details and images of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Alpha device have finally made their way online today. Snagged by the reputable SamMobile, we now know how big the Galaxy Alpha will be, what it will be made of, and a few of the features the device will include.
According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha will come with the “same display as the Galaxy S III” (though they admittedly don’t know exactly what that means yet) at 4.7-inches and an aluminum band that wraps around the sides of the device. The back will be faux-leather plastic, but the device should still maintain a more premium feel. There will be at least 32GB of non-expandable storage, access to LTE-A in certain markets and a fingerprint scanner.
While we don’t know the exact display resolution of the Galaxy Alpha or what kind of processor it’s rocking, it’s easy to see where something like the Alpha will fit in. SamMobile uses the term “iPhone killer” and as much as it makes us cringe to agree, it works. On paper it might look a little more middle of the road compared to something like the LG G3, but it’s going to feel great in your hand and will more than likely be fast enough to not make a difference. And if rumors on both side of the fence pan out, it will be almost identical to the iPhone 6.
We’re not sure when we’ll see the Galaxy Alpha released but we have to imagine it won’t be long now.
