Samsung Galaxy Alpha to be announced on August 13, Exynos 5433 Octa processor and 12MP camera expected
Earlier today, we told you that a Samsung executive confirmed the upcoming release of two new handsets: one sporting a large display, and another one manufactured with “new materials.” The former is probably the Galaxy Note 4, and the latter should be the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. While the Note 4 is expected to be unveiled in September at IFA 2014, the Galaxy Alpha is supposed to arrive a bit earlier.

Yesterday, we heard that Samsung may want to announce the Alpha on August 4. However, according to a new report from German website AllAboutSamsung, that date isn’t accurate. Instead, it’s said that the handset will be announced on August 13.

AllAboutSamsung has a few images that seemingly confirm some of the Galaxy Alpha’s specs, as well as one of its model numbers: SM-G850F. Apparently, the Alpha is powered by an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor that allows it to outperform older devices like the Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S4. Other expected features: 4.8-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 12 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of non-expandable internal memory. Android 4.4.4 KitKat and a heart rate sensor should complete the feature list.

Unlike the plastic-made Galaxy S5 (Samsung’s current flagship smartphone), the Galaxy Alpha includes an aluminum frame around its (apparently very thin) body. Are you excited about this new handset? Let us know in the comments below!
