Samsung seemingly confirms several Galaxy Alpha variants, including AT&T and T-Mobile models
While we know a lot about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Alpha (including most of its features), there’s one question that doesn’t have a concrete answer yet: will the handset be released globally? Well, we guess that it will, because we discovered no less than five alleged Galaxy Alpha versions listed on Samsung’s official website.

Last week, a couple of live photos revealed that one of the model numbers of the Galaxy Alpha was SM-G850F. This model number now has a User Agent profile that’s available at Samsung’s website, alongside the UA profiles of SM-G850A, SM-G850H, SM-G850M, and SM-G850T. All these are listed as sporting displays with 720 x 1280 pixels - that's exactly the rumored resolution of the Galaxy Alpha's 4.8-inch screen. Android 4.4 KitKat is also mentioned, plus maximum CPU frequencies of 2.5 GHz (on the SM-G850F, SM-G850H and SM-G850M) and 2.3GHz (on the SM-G850A).

By looking at the model numbers of previous Galaxy smartphones, we can assume that the SM-G850A is a Galaxy Alpha for AT&T, while the SM-G850T will find a home at T-Mobile. The SM-G850H and SM-G850F should be international versions. Of course, nothing is truly confirmed at this point.

It’s said that Samsung will announce the Galaxy Alpha on August 13. It seems that the handset has a metal frame around its body, and borrows some features from the Galaxy S5, including the fingerprint scanner and the heart rate monitor. Until the Galaxy Alpha is finally (and officially) unveiled, photos that allegedly show its white and black versions can be seen in the slideshow below.
