One of Samsung’s most anticipated devices, the Galaxy Alpha,may not be announced in September. Instead, SamMobile has now claimed that the device will be unveiled on August 4.
Although the device is going to be the first metallic device in Samsung’s Galaxy device, it will not be a premium smartphone, as expected by most buyers.
Instead of the premium specifications, which were earlier leaked, the specifications which have now come to light, are a mix of both high range and mid range smartphones. For example, Galaxy Alpha will feature a smaller, 4.8 inch display with 720 p resolution, and not 1080p, as anticipated earlier.
The device will feature a fingerprint scanner, similar to the one on Galaxy S5. Although Samsung had received tremendously negative reviews on the kind of fingerprint scanner it provided, we are still unsure whether Samsung will be improving upon that or not.
