Samsung Galaxy Alpha announced: 4.7-inch 720p display, OCTA Core CPU and metal frame


Samsung have finally announced the long leaked Galaxy Alpha device. Sharing simiar design traits as the Galaxy S5, the Alpha includes a metal frame for a more solid look and feel. It’s also much lighter and thinner device coming it at 132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm, 115g. The specs aren’t nearly as glamours as the S5, but are’t all that bad. The display is a 4.7-inch AMOLED with 1,280 x 720 resolution. Inside we have a Exynos OCTA Core CPU with Quad Core 1.8GHz and  Quad Core 1.3GHz and 2GB of RAM will come along for the ride. Storage comes in at a nice 32GB, but sadly doesn’t include a MicroSD slot, which is a shocking choice from Samsung. Camera side of things we have a 12MP rear facing sensor and 2.1MP front facing sensor.

Other specs include Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, MIMO(2×2). Download Booster, Ultra Power Saving Mode. Shockingly again we have a small 1,860mAh battery, which considering the size of the device, seems rather odd. The phone will come in Charcoal Black, Dazzling White, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver, and Scuba Blue with availability due sometime in September.
