The latest high-end smartphone of Samsung is slightly different than the flagships released until now. Samsung Galaxy Alpha is armored with advanced capabilities and specs but that is not what makes the model special. It is “dressed” in a metal panel which makes it the first premium device of the Korean manufacturer that replaces the polycarbonate with metal… at least for most of its panel.
The smartphone debuted on 13th of August and it is about time to hear the news that it is hitting the markets. The new high-end flagship of Samsung will be available for pre-orders in the UK on 28th of August. The launching of the model is scheduled for 10th of September.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes to you with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720p. In the gut of the handset is provided an octa-core processor with Exynos 5430 chip. The configuration that powers the Galaxy Alpha includes also 2GB RAM and GPU ATM Mali T-628. There are 32GB native memory out-of-the box. Users have around 25GB. MicroSD slot is not included, so keep in mind to user cloud memory in case you need more. The operating system that is working on the device is Android 4.4.4 KitKat. On the back of the Galaxy Alpha is set a 12MP shooter. On the front side is integrated a 2.1MP camera for selfies. The battery of the smartphone is with a capacity of 1860mAh. It supports the full package of connectivity features – Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G and LTE.
The retailers in the UK that will offer the model include Carphone Warehouse and Phones4u among others. The color options for the flagship include white, gold, blue, silver and black. Samsung Galaxy Alpha arrives on the mobile arena as a main rival of the unannounced Apple iPhone 6 coming in September.
