Samsung executive confirms the existence of a device made from “new materials”, Galaxy Alpha comes to mind
Samsung might be experiencing a plummet of its market share at the moment, but the still-largest smartphone manufacturer will stand its ground pretty seriously. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the much-rumored Galaxy Alpha might be the company's weapons for H2 2014, which will aid it in the battle against Apple and its iPhone 6. The company is said to go all-in for the Galaxy Note 4, but what about the Galaxy Alpha, a.k.a. Galaxy F and Galaxy S5 Prime?

Well, Kim Hyun-joon confirmed that Samsung will release a duo of top-end devices in the upcoming months, one with a big screen (which is, beyond a reasonable doubt, the Galaxy Note 4) and one made from “new materials”. This seems like a pretty serious evidence that the company is indeed working on something really interesting, and it's most probably the Galaxy Alpha. The latest rumors suggest that Samsung will unveil said device on August 4, which is even earlier than the heavily rumored mid-August announcement.

Well, according to the most recent portion of rumors and speculations, it will have little to woo us with in the hardware department – a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, 32GB on-board storage, and a fingerprint sensor. The alleged exterior, however, will be the strongest aspect of the device, as it will be the first metal Samsung device.
