gs5-alpha-6There has been much talk circulating around the Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha (which we have referred to as the Galaxy Alpha in the past), citing it to be a metal clad handset, but so far there has been no images on this purported device – at least not until now. You can check out a gallery of this rumored upcoming premium smartphone right after the jump.

SamMobile revealed the photos in the gallery above, where the images do point to a smartphone which comes with a smaller footprint than the 5.1” Samsung Galaxy S5, although it does feature a different design while maintaining the common design elements such as a perforated back cover that shows it is still in line with the image of the Galaxy family.

SamMobile claims that the Galaxy S5 Alpha will arrive with a 4.7” display, and the resolution count remains to be seen – it could be either Full HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) of Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560 pixels), but the former seems to make a whole lot more sense since Quad HD on a 4.7” display might prove to be more than necessary.

Previous word on the Galaxy S5 Alpha include it being announced sometime next month, not to mention being released in limited quantity.
