It looks like Samsung will launch the Galaxy Alpha, looking to compete heavily against the iPhone 6 coming in a few months. The phone will not be an upgrade from the Galaxy S5, instead it will fit alongside the other Galaxy smartphone ranges.

Coming from a Brazilian source, the Galaxy Alpha will sport a 4.7-inch 1080 x 720 AMOLED HD display. This is lower than 1080p full HD and two steps behind 2K, like the display running on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in South Korea.

The Galaxy Alpha will run on Samsung’s Exynos 6 processor, offering two different quad-core speeds: 1.8GHz and 1.3GHz. This will run alongside 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Samsung will not add a microSD card slot on the Galaxy Alpha.

Inside the Galaxy Alpha there will be a 1,860mAh non-removable battery, 4G LTE Cat 4 and Bluetooth 4.0. The presentation shows TBD near the battery size, meaning Samsung could look to upgrade it, before official launch.


The fingerprint and heart-rate sensor will be added to the Galaxy Alpha. On the Galaxy S5, the heart-rate sensor worked, but the fingerprint sensor ran into a few issues, making it a rather lacklustre experience compared to Apple’s TouchID.

Samsung will add a 12MP rear camera and 2.3MP front camera to the Galaxy Alpha. The biggest change will be on the design, Samsung is looking to add a metal frame to the sides of the device, making it a more robust device.

The report claims that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Alpha sometime in late September and in Brazil it will cost around $1,000. In the United States and Europe, it should cost a lot less than that, to attract potential iPhone 6 buyers.
