When it comes to new smartphones, you can be sure that the likes of Samsung are definitely in front with its fair share of new devices that roll off a seemingly endless production line. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the latest of such smartphones, where we have heard many stories about this unannounced device to date. Apparently, the latest information concerning this bad boy would be it hitting the streets this coming 4th of August, which is more or less one month before many expect Samsung to introduce the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet.
Of course, some other folks might question the reason behind unveiling a couple of products at different times – isn’t doing so a tad inefficient? Well, there is a reason to everything, and chances are since the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is not going to be the high end device that most folks would lose their heads over, quite unlike the Galaxy Note 4 that remains ahead of the curve (hopefully, if its predecessors are anything to go by), then that makes sense. After all, you would not want the thunder of the Galaxy Note 4 to overshadow that of the Galaxy Alpha, right?
The Galaxy Alpha is more or less a souped down version of the Galaxy S5, where it will allegedly feature a 4.8” display at 720p resolution, 32GB of internal memory and a fingerprint scanner among others to boot.
