Get the Samsung Galaxy Alpha imported into the states for $699

The metal-wearing Samsung Galaxy Alpha is not yet available from a U.S. carrier. There is speculation that T-Mobile and AT&T will be offering the device, which might be considered Samsung's closest competitor to the Apple iPhone 6. The 4.7 inch screen, the 720 x 1280 resolution, and the 312ppi pixel density are all very similar to specs on the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 glass. The resolution of the display on Apple's handset is 750 x 1334, giving it a 326ppi pixel density.

If you just can't wait for the handset to officially enter the U.S. borders, you can have it imported by online retailer Expansys. The phone is priced at $699.99 and as of Thursday evening, there were nine units still in stock. If you can wait for the device to be launched in the U.S., you probably will be able to pick it up at a much lower subsidized price (from AT&T, at least).

Since there is no microSD slot on the unit, it is important to grab all the native storage that you will need. 32GB of memory comes with the handset. Of that amount, 25GB is available for storage.
