First Samsung Galaxy Alpha camera samples surface

phone is launching on September 12th after all, and Samsung might still introduce some additional tweaks to its camera algorithms.So does it? The Galaxy Alpha features a 12-megapixel camera (with a single LED flash and no mention of optical image stabilization) that sticks out just slightly out of the back (it's not completely flush with the back cover), similarly to the way the Galaxy S5 camera makes a slight hump. The Galaxy Alpha camera comes with an f/2.2 aperture and a focal length of 4.80mm. Keep in mind that these first sample photographs are likely taken with a non-final build of the Galaxy Alpha - the
With this in mind, these first camera samples from the Galaxy Alpha do give a general idea of what the shooter is capable of. Different samples below shine light on different aspects of the 12-megapixel main cam on the Alpha - color reproduction, exposure, night shots, and so on. Take a look at them right below.

All this means for me is the Note 4 will be brilliant spec wise and build wise if like this with more bells and whistles. Note 4 is a buy for me.... See ya iPhone 5

I finally get it, The Galaxy Alpha was never meant to be a premium phone! It appears that Samsung Board members fed up with apple suing them have finally had the last laugh. THIS IS SAMSUNG RELEASING A MOCKED UP ANDRIOD 4.7" IPHONE 6. And to name it Alpha is as close to Apple without being sued again All the complaints by Samsung followers about battery size ,1800mAh, resolution 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.7 inches (320 ppi pixel density) Here is the biggest clue 32GB NON EXPANDABLE METAL PHONE Samsung have NEVER released a premium phone without expansion This is typical of what Apple fans will accept as a premium phone is what Samsung have done here Samsung have released an Android version of the 4.7" iphone6 with all the inherent mid-range properties Do you really think that Sammy could not have put in better specs? Until I saw the bezel in the photo above I myself was wondering why, would a S5 variant look not like a variant but like its offspring From the many leaks by Apple,afaik the IP6 will retain its 8Mp main camera, so the Aplha (12MP) specs far exceed what will leave the Orchard which will not come with payments enabled NFC No doubt after the 09/09/14 Apple announcement, samsung will comment further but IMO it's an iPhone with specs

Android buyers are so drown into specs they don't see what sammy has done here. I think this alpha is going to be sammy's all round best performer. Simple yet elegant and practical design. Cool specs that can deliver top notch performance. What more do you people want? Spec isn't everything atleast WP and iPhones have proven that countless times.

You're right, I don't like Samsung products but this one is pretty amazing, nice, compact, but I hoped for waterproof feature and SD slot - these things are dealbreakers for me, maybe if it had 64GN version but it doesn't

Well, I would agree with that but the truth of the matter is, Samsung's OS does need horse power to properly work. I'm loving the design of the Galaxy Alpha but I can already see TW lag and stutter as always... Let's hope that the 720p screen helps a bit with fluidity.

The night shot is below average. Noise reduction and image artifacts all over the place

I agree. Phones dont have huge lenses and low-light shots always have noise. People expect DSLR grade night shots with 7 mm phones. Even Lumia 1020 suffers at night. There is always noise. And that LG laser focus wont give noiseless night shots either. People should have the sense to know that unlike dreams technology is restricted. They dream about capturing night shots as clear as their eyes perceive -__-
