These may not be Samsung’s best quarters when it comes to its sales of mobile devices, but that doesn’t change the fact that the company remains the biggest smartphone maker in the world. This is one of those companies that doesn’t mind pushing something directly from an R&D lab to a retail store, win or lose, so it’s hard to see this Korean giant slow down in its plans to continue as the smartphone king. The Galaxy Alpha is a clear example another experiment that Samsung is willing to push forward, and rumors say this will happen very soon.
New reports from some Korean sources claim that Samsung may announce this device on Wednesday, August 13th, just like we reported on previous rumors. The specs aren’t something out of this world for the most part if we consider the 4.7-inch 720p display, but the rest is actually good. In addition to this being Samsung’s first aluminum phone, we hear a Snapdragon 805 processor making the cut, along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of non-expandable storage. Other reports even claim that there will be a 64GB variant available for those in need, as the lack of microSD support is a problem for many.
We’re still not sure what markets will receive this Galaxy Alpha, but with previous rumors of US variants, it shouldn’t take long for it to reach these shores.
