The Samsung Galaxy Alpha might arrive this Wednesday, a 64GB version rumored as well

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha to be unveiled this Wednesday, a 64GB version rumored as well
At this point, hardly anyone can argue that Samsung isn't working on its first excessively-rumored metal-clad smartphone, the Galaxy Alpha (SM-G850F). What was initially regarded as a beefed-up version of the Galaxy S5 flagship gradually took the shape of a 4.7-incher, which will be most probably put up against the upcoming 4.7” Apple iPhone 6, at least per the numerous speculations.

According to a new report from distant Korea, Samsung's poised to announce the Galaxy Alpha this very Wednesday, on August 13. This falls in line with the rumors that we got hold several days ago, and if we consider the recently held Samsung Galaxy Alpha regatta in Moscow, it is highly-probable that we will see the Galaxy Alpha in just a few days' time.

Not that we haven't done so already – the metal-clad warrior leaked several times in its full glory. Of course, we are talking about leaked photos that should be taken with a handful of salt, but we don't expect Sammy to surprise us in the design department this time, too.

The hardware of the Alpha, however, is a tad more elusive. Although we have a pretty clear picture about what's going to be inside the device (a quad-core Snapdragon 805 silicon, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 1850mAh power bank, 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display) there's always the possibility that the official spec sheet might surprise us all.

One of the latest rumors, for example, claims that Samsung is also working on a 64GB version of its iPhone 6 rival. Provided that the rumor mill claims the Galaxy Alpha won't sport a microSD slot (which would be an uncommon practice for Sammy), this seems sound and logical. As we know more, you'll know more, too.
