Samsung Galaxy Alpha to sport 720p Display According to Developer Console

July 28, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’ve seen a number of rumors on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha already, including the fact that it might actually be the Galaxy F, which is rumored to be taking over the Galaxy S line later this year. According to Samsung’s Developer Console, it appears that the Galaxy Alpha is going to sport a screen similar to the one on the Galaxy S3. And by that we mean a 4.8-inch 720p display. The Samsung developer console also confirms to us that this is going to launch as the Galaxy Alpha, and not the Galaxy F, or the Galaxy S5 Alpha, or even the Galaxy S5 Prime. Word is that it’ll be announced in August, just a few weeks ahead of the Galaxy Note 4 launch, which I’m still not 100% sure on. I just don’t see Samsung announcing two flagships that close to each other.

The Galaxy Alpha is also said to sport 32GB of internal storage, without a microSD card slot. Which would actually be really surprising. As Samsung was one of those manufacturers that kept a microSD card slot no matter what, and now that everyone is adding one back, they are getting rid of it? Weird. Additionally, it’ll probably sport a Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM. But it’s also supposed to have metal or aluminum sides with the back being the dimpled back we’ve seen on the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab S and other newer Samsung devices. I was kind of hoping they’d go back to the faux leather. I think the faux leather looks and feels better. But hey, that’s just my opinion.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is still set for an August announcement, as far as we know. Although no press invites have been sent out just yet. So we’ll have to see on that one. But how many of you are interested in the Galaxy Alpha? Let us know in the comments below.
