Samsung has received many bad reviews about the design of their devices because they were all made from plastic, but the latest announced device clearly shows that the company wants to upgrade its Galaxy line with something new.
Samsung has launched Galaxy Alpha, 4.7 inch advanced smartphone with plastic casing, but with aluminum frame.
Aluminum frame makes this device look more classy then its plastic predecessors, and rounded edges add up to the exclusive look as well as soft lining on the back side. Being 7mm thin and weighing only 115 grams this is one of the lightest advanced smartphones on the market.
Key specs next to 4.7 inch Super AMOLED screen with 1280 x 720 resolution are Octa Core processor (Quad 1.8 GHz + Quad 1.3 GHz), 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and 12 megapixel back camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera. Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC chip, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 are featured as well.
The device is powered by 1860 mAh battery and it has finger print scanner sensor.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha will run Android KitKat 4.4.4 with standard Samsung interface, and it will be available in several colors. It is expected to be available on the market at the beginning of Septmeber, and the price still remains unknown.
