Galaxy Alpha Spotted in Photos Next to iPhone 5s, Confirmed for Various Carriers

Samsung Galaxy Alpha, the metal-clad Android-based smartphone that South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics is expected to make official on August 13, has leaked online in a new series of photos, this time showcased next to an iPhone 5s.

Said images, available courtesy of Twitter user @culeaks, show that the new handset will be slimmer than Apple’s existing handset, which is 7.6mm thick. Previous reports suggested that Samsung would plan on launching the device with a 6mm thin body, and it seems that they might pan out. Apparently, the handset vendor decided to pack Galaxy Alpha with an 1850mAh battery inside, which explains why it remains so thin. Moreover, this also sheds some more light on why the company built the Galaxy Alpha with a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display that would boast only a 720p resolution, at a 320ppi pixel density. Should the screen have been larger, a bigger battery would have been included in the device, which automatically might have resulted in a thicker body.

Despite the small size, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha will still be a powerful smartphone, as it should be powered by an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, as PhoneArena notes. However, the device in the photos below sports the LTE-A logo on the back, which means that it is aimed at the South Korean market, and that it might be powered by a Snapdragon 805 processor. Additionally, the handset should arrive on shelves with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and LTE Cat. 6 capabilities. The usual set of connectivity options and sensors should also be included in the package. On the back, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha should sport a 12-megapixel camera, most probably capable of recording videos at least in full HD resolution. A front camera for making video calls will also be included in the package.

Moreover, the upcoming mobile phone is expected to arrive on shelves with the Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system loaded on top right from the start, but also with a variety of customizations coming from Samsung itself. Samsung Galaxy Alpha hasn’t been officially confirmed as of now, but the device has been already spotted in a series of User Agent Profiles on Samsung’s website, with model numbers SM-G850A, SM-G850F, SM-G850H, SM-G850M, and SM-G850T. These listings have confirmed not only some of the features that the smartphone will include, but also the fact that it will be released on shelves at various wireless carriers in the United States, including AT&T(the SM-G850A) and T-Mobile (the SM-G850T).

As mentioned above, Samsung Galaxy Alpha is expected to be officially announced on August 13, and all the necessary info on its hardware specs and market availability will be provided at that time, so keep an eye on this space for updates.
