Limited edition Samsung Galaxy Alpha combines metal with leather

Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha made headlines when it launched earlier this year because it was the first Samsung smartphone to feature some metal in its design. Now Samsung is taking things a step further with the Galaxy Alpha by throwing in some leather as well.

Samsung France has announced that it’ll offer super-limited editions of the Galaxy Alpha with leather backsides. The phones are designed by shoe company Free Lance and artist Jean-Baptiste Rautureau for women and men, respectively. There will be just 100 leather-clad Galaxy Alpha units sold.


While the outside of these Galaxy Alpha units are different than the standard plastic-backed models, the insides are all the same. That means that the device has a 4.7-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 12-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

There’s no word yet on how much these limited, leather-ified Galaxy Alpha models will cost, but we’re betting that they won’t be cheap.
