Samsung Galaxy Alpha to sport a 4.8-inch 720p screen?
First seen yesterday in lots of live images, Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy Alpha may not be the high-end device that some were expecting it to be. According to SamMobile, which updated a previous report, the Galaxy Alpha sports a 4.8-inch display with 720 x 1,280 pixels - which isn’t exactly high-end by today’s standards.

Initially, it was believed that the Galaxy Alpha featured a 4.7-inch screen, and we assumed its resolution would be of at least 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. Well, it looks like we were wrong. Of course, a 720p display has one definite advantage: it doesn’t drain battery life as fast as higher-res screens.

It’s said that the Galaxy Alpha has 32GB of non-expandable internal memory, and an aluminum frame around its body. On the back, we can see a camera with LED flash, as well as a heart rate sensor. All in all, the Alpha might end up being a premium-looking device with mid-end features. Hopefully, this means it won’t be too expensive.

In case you missed all the Samsung Galaxy Alpha live photos yesterday, we’ve included them below (some images show the unannounced handset next to the Galaxy S5). Reportedly, the final design of the Galaxy Alpha may change. The smartphone could be officially introduced next month.
