Samsung launches ultra-thin Galaxy Alpha smartphone with metal body scheduled for September 3
Samsung has officially announced its ultra-thin and metal-framed Galaxy Alpha. The smartphone features a 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display, octa-core processor, 12-megapixel rear camera, and is 6.7mm thin.
The Galaxy Alpha’s metal build and sleek profile, as well as its 4.7-inch screen size, position it as a direct rival to the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 that is also expected to ship with a 4.7” display and a metal body. Apart from the metal frame, though, the Alpha looks a lot like the Galaxy S5 in terms of design with similarly position buttons and overall styling. The Alpha has also got a removable plastic back cover with a slightly different, denser pattern. The new handset has a fingerprint reader just like the S5, but it’s not water-resistant.
