Samsung has officially announced the arrival of its very first all metal body smartphone called the Galaxy Alpha. The announcement comes on the heels of the reports suggesting a 9th September launch of the new Apple iPhone 6. There is no official news about its pricing from Samsung yet. However, the phone will be shipped to 150 countries in September. Samsung says the Alpha represents "the evolution of Galaxy Design", with a metal frame and more rounded corners. The Galaxy Alpha is Samsung's very first smartphone which will sport an 'all metal' body.
The Galaxy Alpha is expected to pack in Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, a 4.7-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) Super AMOLED display and an octa-core processor. This impressive tech is packed in the very thin 'all metal' 6.7mm body which weighs 115 grams only. Alpha has been fitted with a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing snapper. Its 1860mAh battery sounds very insufficient but we best expect that Samsung will optimize this for prolonged usage. The phone will also be offered in a quad-core clocked at a speed of 2.5GHz. On the design front, Samsung has made every move possible to make it not look like an iPhone rip-off. There's a slight bulge on the top and the bottom has also been slightly extended. In short, the phone looks very slick!
