As reported earlier, Samsung may be launching its first “metallic device”, the Galaxy Alpha, tomorrow. This will be Samsung’s first attempt at a metal built device, ahead of Note 4’s launch.
Samsung, which will be launching the Galaxy Note 4 in September, has decide to launch the Galaxy Alpha, before its flagship device. This is largly to give users,a feel of Samsung’s metallic frame, which it is using in he Note 4. Hence, this makes Galaxy Alpha, Samsung’s first device to have metal on its body.
Apart from the metallic frame, there is nothing new in the device. It features a Galaxy-S5 like back-panel, which may come as a major disappointment for the buyers.
Apart from that, Galaxy Alpha, will be a mid-budget phone, and not a premium one, as anticipated earlier. It will feature a 4.8-inch 720p display, and will be powered by an Exynos 5433 octa-core processor paired with Mali-T628 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
It has a 12 mega pixel rear snapper and a 2 megapixel front camera. The phone has an in-built memory of 32 GB with no option for microSD.
