Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha live photos show up, 4.7-inch display apparently confirmed
Ladies and gentlemen, it appears that we can now take a look at the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha (aka Galaxy S5 F), which is expected to be Sammy’s next premium smartphone. 

Live photos that allegedly present the Galaxy Alpha have been unveiled by two sources: SamMobile, and Vietnamese website Tihnte. The images show a device that’s clearly smaller than the 5.1-inch Galaxy S5, while also having a different design - although, of course, common design elements (like the perforated back cover) still exist.

According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Alpha sports a 4.7-inch display - just as previously rumored. The pixel resolution of the display isn’t known. It could be either 1,080 x 1,920 (Full HD), or 1,440 x 2,560 (Quad HD). We’re leaning towards the former, because a Quad HD screen that measures only 4.7-inches may be overkill.

The Galaxy Alpha seems to have an aluminum frame around its body, while other features should include a fingerprint scanner and 32GB of non-expandable internal memory. By the looks of it, the Alpha could be Samsung’s response to Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6, which might be released in September. Speaking of releases, the Galaxy Alpha may be introduced in August (but that, of course, remains to be confirmed).

Take a look at all the images included below and let us know if Samsung has (or hasn't got) a winner here:
