Samsung Galaxy Alpha to break cover on the 4th of August

Galaxy Alpha

A new report is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone will be shown off to the world on the 4th of August. This is contrary to previous reports which hinted at a September release of the handset. But given that the Galaxy Alpha is merely a midrange offering, it won’t make sense for the device to share the stage with the Galaxy Note 4.

As we all know by now, the Galaxy Alpha is supposed to be a midrange offering with the design of a more premium Galaxy flagship. It is believed to come equipped with a fingerprint scanner as well as the heart rate monitor, much like the Galaxy S5. However, unlike the company’s flagship, the Galaxy Alpha is expected to pack a metal chassis instead of plastic.

Other hardware specs of the Galaxy Alpha include the 4.8 inch 720p AMOLED display and 32GB of internal storage. It is also rumored to sport 2GB of RAM, a 16 or 13-megapixel camera and Android 4.4.4 KitKat. There’s no word on the processor running on the device, but we won’t have to wait long to get word on that.
