Galaxy Alpha, Samsung’s first metal phone, to be officially unveiled on August 4th
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is a first of a kind device for Samsung - a smartphone made with metal, a material that is considered more premium than common plastic, it is different than everything else Samsung offers at the moment.

The Galaxy Alpha has actually already leaked out in images that have given us an idea about what it could look like, but news is that it is now said to get an official unveiling in less than a week, on August 4th. The date comes from the usually reliable SamMobile in a report that says that the earlier rumored mid-August unveiling has been pushed forward.

So what can we expect from the Galaxy Alpha? For starters, it’s not a flagship-level smartphone. Despite having a premium build quality, this is more of a mid-tier device in a class, similar to that of the Galaxy S5 mini.

The rumored specs include the following:

  • 4.8-inch 720p display
  • 32 GB of non-expandable internal storage
  • a fingerprint scanner
The rest remains a mystery, but one that is likely to be soon uncovered, if this rumor is indeed true - if so, stay tuned for the Galaxy Alpha official announcement on Monday, August 4th.
