Following weeks of leaks and rumors, Samsung has finally gone ahead and formally announced the Galaxy Alpha, a handset that takes a (small) step away from all the plastic that usually goes into the company’s designs and introduces a phone with a handsome ring of metal encircling its frame. Is the inside just as impressive as the outside? Let’s take a look at what makes the Galaxy Alpha tick.
We’re a bit removed from flagship territory here, with the Galaxy Alpha sporting a 4.7-inch 720p and running a 1.8GHz octa-core SoC, presumably an Exynos component.
We also see a decent-sized 12MP main camera, a 2.1MP front facer, and while there’s no room for storage expansion, the built-in 32GB of flash should keep you going for quite a while.
