The upcoming HD smartphone features a new elegant design.
Samsung has announced the latest addition to its Galaxy line of products. The Galaxy Alpha smartphone offers a sophisticated and compact construction, providing a stylish alternative to the more traditional Galaxy S5.
"The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market," said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. "With an entirely new appearance, the Galaxy Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality combining a stunning metal frame and slim, light weight design with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device."
Samsung's Galaxy Alpha features a 4.7-inch 1280x720p AMOLED display. The smartphone is powered by an Octa Core (Quad 1.8GHz + Quad 1.3GHz) CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 1,860 mAh battery running Android 4.4.4. A 12MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front camera are also included. Likewise, the device supports real time HDR and 4K video recording. Popular Galaxy features like Ultra-Power Saving Mode, S Health, Finger Print Scanner, and Private Mode are integrated as well.
