Korean media has just revealed the first details about a new metal-clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha handset, claiming that the company will officially announce it on the 13th of August. Despite of that, you should know from the start that the actual availability of the handset is scheduled for September. Anyway, it is not too early to find out what is this handset capable to offer us, especially knowing that it will be the first phone in Samsung’s “luxury” line of upscale handset which will combine both beauty and high-end specs.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha with Metal Back Cover and Sides
Judging from the leaked photos that we have up to know, it seems that the mystery has vanished away and we finally know what Samsung understands when it comes to the idea of a premium body. Its Samsung Galaxy Alpha will come with metal back cover and sides, while the general shape is the one that the popular Galaxy S5 has.
When it comes to the materials used in Samsung’s phones, the South Korean company has usually chose plastic, Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 being some isolated exceptions, so we must admit that we love the idea of a metal-clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha. It was about time for such a change, don’t you think?
What about Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha Specs?
When it comes to the leaked specs revealed by AnTuTu, it seems that Samsung Galaxy Alpha will get its power from a Snapdragon 805 clocked at up to 2.7 GHz, also coming along with a 5.1″ Quad HD Super AMOLED panel.
In case of wondering about the memory, we already know that the handset will pack no less than 3 GB of RAM, not to mention how tempting that 16 MP camera on the back with optical image stabilization already is.
So, if we take in consideration all these, we must admit that it is hard to predict the price of this Samsung Galaxy Alpha, but we can assure you that a handset with top of the line specs and such a more premium exterior doesn’t come cheap!
