Samsung finally unveiled its premium built Galaxy Alpha smartphone a few days ago. The device which sports a metallic trim and a rather compact body. This phone comes with a 4.7-inch 720p (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is not expandable via MicroSD card, this is kind of odd for Samsung though. On the back of the device Samsung decided to use a 12-megapixel camera while there’s a 2.1-megapixel shooter on the front of the device. Latest iteration of Google’s OS will come pre-installed, Android 4.4.4 KitKat and the device will be available next month, in September. Samsung will launch two versions of the device, as usual when it comes to their high-end offerings, one will carry Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 CPU while the other one will come with Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5430 SoC and it measures only 6.7mm in thickness.
EE, the UK’s largest network, announced recently that they will carry Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha device and that it will be available for pre-order soon. “EE’s superfast 4G network is the perfect partner for Samsung’s new flagship device.
