The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is pegged for an August 13 unveiling, but it appears to be listed for pre-order well ahead of its official launch. Well, a U.K. based online retailer MobileFun has posted a pre-order page for the yet-to-be-announced handset that is believed to be an exquisite device with metallic chassis.
The retailer has listed the Galaxy Alpha with a hefty price tag of £549 (approx. $925), but this matches the metallic shell of the device. The details regarding the device’s availability are not known, but the listing does shed some light on its specifications.
As per the listing, the Galaxy Alpha would be powered by an Exynos 5 Octa processor paired with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of non-expandable default storage capacity. Also, it will house a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED display that will pack a HD screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. When it comes to software, the device is said to be fueled by Android 4.4.4 KitKat platform and include a 12 MP primary snapper teamed with a 2.1 MP selfie front-facer.
The Galaxy Alpha is suggested to arrive with a slew of connectivity features such as LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi. It is also said to incorporate a fingerprint scanner as the one in the Galaxy S5.
Nevertheless, the online retailer has pulled down the pre-order of Galaxy Alpha within a short span of time. Following the same, the media reports have started tipping that the device was supposed to debut on sale only from September 13.
