It may not be the most powerful device in Samsung’s stable, it may not have the biggest screen and the wildest features, but the Galaxy Alpha makes everything up with its dashing good looks.

Announced last month, the Galaxy Alpha stands out among its siblings through the emphasis that Samsung put on its appearance. The metal frame, beveled edges, and soft plastic back have made some call the Alpha “Samsung’s most beautiful phone ever.” So, when can you get it? If you live in the UK or Canada, pretty soon.

In the UK, where the Galaxy Alpha has been on pre-order for a while now for £549.00, the device will begin shipping Friday, September 12. That’s the same day you can expect to see the Alpha in stores, from retailers like Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U, and carriers O2 and EE. This is a 32GB device, available in multiple color options, though the most common will be the black, white, and silver.

In Canada, the first carriers to offer the Galaxy Alpha will be Bell and Virgin Mobile starting September 26, with other carriers to join in “over the following months.” Bell and Virgin will have the device available in black, white, and gold. On Bell, the Galaxy Alpha will set you back $149 on a two-year contract or $649 downright.

If you still need more convincing about the Alpha, Josh recently spent some time with the 4.7-incher at IFA Berlin, and these are his impressions:

Will you be buying a Galaxy Alpha once it hits your country?
