Samsung Unveils Galaxy Alpha Smartphone With Metal Frame And Octa Core Processor

Samsung has always been criticized for its plastic design. Today, Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Alpha smartphone with iPhone-like design and a metal frame. This handset comes with a Finger Print Scanner and Ultra-Power Saving Mode, which was previously seen in the company’s flagship smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Alpha is touted to be one of the slimmest Galaxy devices. It is also compatible with Samsung Gear Fit, Gear Live and Gear 2 wearables.


“The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market. With an entirely new appearance, the Galaxy Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality combining a stunning metal frame and slim, light weight design with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device.”

– JK Shin, CEO of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics
