I bet you’re more than tired of the Galaxy Alpha rumors by now. We’ve seen a bunch of leaked images of the phone as well as alleged specifications, this is just one of the leaks, you can find more images from previous leaks in the gallery below. Samsung Developer Console also confirmed the device will sport a 720p screen. Previous leaks said that the device is due this Wednesday, August 13th, it looks like that will pan out.
A fresh information from Korean MT Media says that the device will be launched this Wednesday. Samsung might finally release this thing and rid us of tons and tons of rumors that have been coming our way in the recent weeks and even conflict one with the other. Either way, Samsung’s premium Galaxy Alpha offering is expected to sport Samsung’s very own Exynos octa-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and an already mentioned 720p (1280 x 720) display. Other than that, 32GB of expandable (via Micro SD card) storage has been rumored along with an 1850mAh battery. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected out of the box. If the leaked images are to be believed the device itself looks an awful lot like a Galaxy S2 when you’re looking at it from the front and it has that chambered edges like the latest iPhone devices (4, 4s, 5, 5s). Hopefully we won’t be seeing yet another lawsuit between Samsung and Apple.
This device should come prior to the Galaxy Note 4 phablet which is expected to launch at this year’s IFA in Berlin at Samsung’s already scheduled “Unpacked” event on September 3rd. Anyone out there interested in the Galaxy Alpha smartphone or are you holding out for the Galaxy Note 4 (of course there’s a third “I’m not interested in either one” option)?
