galaxy alpha fccThe Samsung Galaxy Alpha, a smartphone that is “there but not quite there” just yet, is back in front of the headlines once again by appearing on the FCC, or so we think in the form of the SM-G850F, picking up approval along the way. The FCC documents point to the possible Samsung Galaxy Alpha carrying a measurement of 133mm x 67mm, which would make it smaller compared to the regular Samsung Galaxy S5 that measures 142mm x 72.5mm.

It certainly adds up so far, considering how the Galaxy Alpha is supposed to arrive with a 4.8” display in the first place, delivering 720p resolution along the way. No thickness on the Galaxy Alpha has been revealed by the FCC, but it ought to remain well within the confines of 6mm thereabouts, and if so, it would be thinner compared to the existing iPhone 5s flagship from Apple.

The SM-G850F will also come with Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity, NFC support, dual-band Wi-Fi capability, and LTE (bands 2 and 5). It must be noted, however, that this particular model that arrived on the FCC is not meant to debut in North America, but that does not mean it will skip the U.S. anyways. Would you settle for the Galaxy Alpha when it finally arrives?
