Let’s face it, we live in a tech world where bigger is considered better. And Samsung has been a long advocate of this policy with its smartphones and its displays. But according to new sources, the company’s upcoming Galaxy Alpha smartphone could feature a miserly 4.8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, the same as the two year old Galaxy S III.
This has clearly taken us by surprise considering that Samsung is supposedly touting this to be its first metal clad handset to launch in recent times. Keeping that in mind, using a relatively outdated 4.8 inch 720p display would seem like a missed opportunity. For quite a few months now, rumors have suggested that the metal phone from the company will pack a 2K resolution display, making it a solid contender to the LG G3 and the upcoming Apple iPhone 6.
As for the other hardware details of the smartphone, it is said that the Galaxy Alpha will pack 32GB of internal storage and we’re hoping a 16-megapixel camera will be on board too. It has been clarified that only the sides will be made of metal and the back cover will still be plastic, which will make it easier for customers to swap batteries if necessary.
