Official: Samsung Galaxy Alpha Is Metal, Mid-Range Dylan Duarte August 14, 2014 After numerous leaks and discussions, Samsung is finally releasing the Galaxy Alpha. With the phone finally arriving after months of talk, it feels like it arrived to a lot of fanfare, but in reality, it’s nothing more than just another mid-range smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha boasts a metal frame that makes it look much fancier than it actually is, especially since the front and the back are still the same plastic as other Samsung phones. Inside, it’s using an octa core Exynos 5 processor with quad 1.8GHz + quad 1.3GHz, backed with 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is limited to 32GB with no MicroSD slot, so that 32GB is all you get. The Galaxy Alpha is equipped with a 720p 4.7-inch Super AMOLED panel, a 12MP rear camera capable of 4K video and a 2.1MP front camera for selfies. There’s also a fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitor, and S Health suite, all running on Android 4.4.2. So, the Galaxy Alpha is here, but it’s nothing to get excited about. Still, if you’re not bursting with funds and the price ends up being right (no details yet), it could make for a solid mid-range device. It’s still Samsung, after all. Expect pricing and release date details soon. via Mobile Burn Share This With The World!
