The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is quickly becoming one of the most intriguing unannounced smartphones of the year, namely because the Alpha would theoretically represent the Korean tech giant’s first steps towards premium build quality.
Following a large number of leaked photos depicting the device in all of its metal glory, the Alpha quickly became one of the most talked-over devices of the year, not only because it shares certain similarities with the iPhone 5S (from a design point of view), but also because, once again, the handset promises to become Samsung’s first metal-clad premium smartphone.
With all this anticipation going on, everyone’s wondering when the Samsung Galaxy Alpha might see the light of day, and by the looks of it, today we might’ve found out the answer we were looking for. You’ll find the details right after the break.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha to be Announced this Wednesday
According to fresh reports from the Korean media, Samsung is getting ready to unveil the Galaxy Alpha on the 13th day of the month, meaning that starting this Wednesday we might know almost all there is to know in regards to the said device.
Based on previously leaked marketing material shared by the guys over at Sam Mobile and Tech Mundo, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha should sport a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 720, an octa-core processor comprised of a quad-core 1.8 GHz unit and a secondary 4-core 1.3 GHz CPU, 2 GB of RAM with 32 GB of non-expandable storage, a 1,860 mAh battery that seems to be subject to change and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
As far as the smartphone’s availability goes, we should point out that even if the Samsung Galaxy Alpha will become official in a couple of days from now, there’s a high probability that the smartphone will make its debut in South Korea (much like the “experimental” Galaxy Round did before it). With a bit of luck the smartphone will soon expand its reach across the globe.
