It’s taken a while and a whole lot of leaks but Samsung has finally officially revealed their Galaxy Alpha smartphone, a device that does away with the traditional plastic shell for Samsung devices and replaces it with a metal band along the edge of the phone.
Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha is more than just a redesign however, Samsung is including a 720p display with the device as well as a region-specific processor. Just which areas will get the quad-core and which will see the octa-core chips have not been revealed yet but either way, the Alpha should have enough power to make users happy.
Also on the cards for the handset are a 12MP camera (as well as a 2.1MP front-facer), 2GB of RAM, a 1,860mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner.
Samsung has not yet priced the Galaxy Alpha but we can expect it to hit the market in September this year. Other metal-bodied devices will likely follow from the company.
