Samsung has many new smartphones in store for us but the next one highly anticipated is the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The model is expected to be officially introduced on August 13 so leaked images are popping up left and right.
The Galaxy Alpha is rumored to be a high-end smartphone from Samsung. The latest leak is from a Brazilian website Tecmundo. Rumor has it that the Android phone will have a 4.7-inch display screen, a 1280x720 resolution, Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, Samsung octa-core Exynos 5 processor, a 32GB built-in memory, and of course, a microSD slot for memory expansion. As expected, the phone will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat mobile OS and the native TouchWiz UI by Samsung.
Samsung's yet-to-be-unveiled Galaxy Alpha is believed to rival the iPhone 6-also yet-to-be-revealed. Higher specs are expected so a 64GB model could be released in a few months.
The leaked image also shows the Galaxy Alpha's other features: a 1860 mAh one battery, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, USB 3.0, 4G LTE radio connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 2.1 megapixel front camera (for your selfie addiction), 12 megapixel rear camera, a super-fast autofocus, a heart rate sensor, and a fingerprint monitor now standard in high-end Samsung smartphones.
If the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Alpha is being prepared to compete with the upcoming iPhone 6 line from Apple, which has two versions (a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch model), people can expect a larger model but no confirmation on that part yet. The only other information known is that phone will have an aluminum or metallic body and will be available in white and black.
The other day a leaked photo of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha side-by-side a Galaxy S5 was spotted. And then it passed through the FCC for approval ahead of schedule, and was even listed for pre-order by an online retailer with a reference to model SM-G850F.
The Brazilian version of the Galaxy Alpha is believed to be R$2,399 which is about $920 in the United States for the 32GB model. The new smartphone should be announced anytime this August or next month.
