Samsung’s #GalaxyAlpha smartphone can now be snatched up for $279.99, which is a sizable discount on the standard asking price. The device usually retails for somewhere near $400 (at least according to the listing). For those unaware, this is Samsung’s first all-metal smartphone and was unveiled in late 2014.
The Korean manufacturer followed the Alpha with the Galaxy Note 4, which also had an identical design. So one can say that the Galaxy Alpha marked the start of Samsung’s new design philosophy, which included the use of premium materials and a unibody design, something that’s seen even on the current crop of flagships. The Galaxy Alpha also comes with the new-gen Gorilla Glass 4 display, which should keep the device safe from accidental scratches and scuffs.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha here is available in a Gold variant, with no other models on offer for the same price. The smartphone packs a 4.7 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a quad core Snapdragon 801 chipset, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, Android 5.0 Lollipop and an 1,860 mAh battery pack.
