While the whole world is busy checking out the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, here we are with something from the bowels of the Land of the Rising Sun – with Samsung and NTT DoCoMo rolling out a spanking new Samsung Galaxy S3 model, calling it the “Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha”. Just what in the manner of all things Android is the Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha? Well, it seems that this particular version of the Galaxy S3 will not only arrive in a different shade, but will also carry similar hardware that is found in the Galaxy Note 2.

Sporting a similar Exynos 4412 1.6GHz quad-core processor that rocks the Galaxy Note 2, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha will also be accompanied by 2GB RAM, making it the superior version of the Galaxy S3 which originally ships with a 1.4GHz processor and 1GB RAM. Not only that, one ought to take note that you will also get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box with this puppy, in addition to LTE compatibility. There is no word on pricing details as at press time, and neither do we know whether the Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha will arrive in the US or across the pond, but we will do our best to look out for more information.
