As expected Samsung has announced its awaited latest smartphone in its Galaxy series, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, its specs are consistent with its earlier leaks. It is the first premium smartphone from Samsung with metal frame.
If we talk about specs the Samsung Galaxy Alpha flaunts a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display screen with screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, under the hood its powered by an Octa-Core Exynos processor based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture with two set of 1.8 GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad processor paired with 2Gb of RAM and has 32 GB of internal storage and misses microSD card solt.
At back Galaxy Alpha has got 12MP rear camera with LED Flash, it can record 4K Video, at front it has 2.1 MP front facing camera. We will be more than happy if its performance will be similar to of Galaxy S 5. For connectivity it has 4G LTE-A Cat.6 / 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2X2 MIMO), Bluetooth v4.0 LE, GPS, NFC, it do support LTE but we have our doubts on its working in India. It houses a 1860 mAh battery and as per software front it runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat wrapped with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI
Samsung Galaxy Alpha will be available Charcoal Black, Dazzling White, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver and Scuba Blue colors. It comes with some features which we had seen in Samsung Galaxy S 5 like S Health 3.0, Heart rate sensor, fingerprint scanner and ultra-power saving mode. It will go on sale in 150 countries in September, at this time there is no word on its price but as per as its price could be a crucial point. Samsung has selected launch time somewhere around the launch date of iPhone 6, so it could be nice to see how both phones perform in market.
