Samsung will announce the Galaxy Alpha on 4th August [Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia)]
(Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Samsung's first metal smartphone will apparently be released next week, according to a report by SamMobile. The previously rumoured Galaxy Alpha will be unveiled on the 4th of August, putting it roughly a month ahead of the launch of the Galaxy Note 4.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Alpha will basically be a watered down Galaxy S5 with a a 4.8-inch 720p display, 32GB storage and a fingerprint scanner, among other things. The targeted consumers for this device will be in China, where Samsung has been coming under pressure from smaller vendors such as Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi in releasing affordable mid-range offerings.
That said, while the Galaxy Alpha's hardware seems disappointing, Galaxy Note 4 is fully expected to be an absolute beast of a smartphone. Earlier benchmarks indicate that the device will feature a 2K display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel camera and a 3.68-megapixel front-facing camera. Regardless it will be at least another two month’s wait before we get a glimpse of it.
