After a string of leaks and a semi-official acknowledgement from a Samsung executive, the Galaxy Alpha is all but confirmed. Just yesterday we saw a set of hands-on images of the white version of the device, and now, new high-quality shots give us another look at the metal-framed Galaxy Alpha.
We get a good look at the aluminum frame going around the edges of the Galaxy Alpha, with chamfered edges and a sculpted profile, as well as the speaker grill placed on the bottom of the phone.
In a side by side shot with what looks to be the iPhone 5S, we can see that the Galaxy Alpha is significantly slimmer than Apple’s device, which is 7.6 millimeters across. An older report claimed the Alpha will be just 6 millimeters thick.
On the front and back, the Alpha sports Samsung’s typical design, including a variant of the dimpled texture that the Korean giant introduced with the Galaxy S5.
Besides the six images, @culeaks also tweeted a rundown of the Alpha’s alleged specifications. The only new thing is the battery capacity, at 1850 mAh.
We expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy Alpha by the end of the summer. A report from last week pegged August 13 as the big day, but we’ve yet to hear anything official on the matter.
Thanks for the tip!
