The yet-to-be-announced metal-clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha briefly went up for pre-order in the UK at GBP 549 (approximately Rs. 56,400). The smartphone is rumoured to launch on August 13
Although the listing by Mobilefun for the 32GB Samsung Galaxy Alpha has now been removed, it had mentioned several specifications, as spotted by TheInquirer. No release date was given by the retailer.
According to the report, the listed specifications of the Galaxy Alpha included a 4.7-inch (720x1280 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 320ppi; a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with "super-fast autofocus" and LED flash; a 2.1MP front-facing camera; 32GB of built-in storage; a fingerprint sensor; 4G LTE, and Bluetooth 4.0. As this is a third-party retailer, the specifications have to be taken with a pinch of salt - though they seem to match previous leaks.
While an earlier report had indicated the anticipated Galaxy Alpha will come with model number SM-G850F, another report now suggests that the smartphone will have different model numbers for different wireless carriers.
Notably, variants of the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy Alpha smartphone were spotted in Samsung's UA (user agent) profile page, which listed SM-G850A, SM-G850H, SM-G850M, and SM-G850T variants. While all the different models are listed with a 720x1280 pixel display, the processor seems different for some variants, with a 2.3GHz SoC for the SM-G850A, and a 2.5GHz SoC for the SM-G850F, SM-G850H and SM-G850M.
Last week, the anticipated Galaxy Alpha smartphone was spotted with a 720p display in a user agent (UA) profile as well as on Samsung's developer console.
In the meanwhile, the anticipated Galaxy Alpha has also been purportedly leaked by a Weibo user
in images that showcase all sides of the alleged white variant. While the handset in the images appears to have the same design seen in earlier leaked images
of the black variant, we cannot comment on the authenticity of the images at this point of time.
