Samsung Galaxy Alpha to be released next week?
Samsung Galaxy Alpha leaks just keep on coming. We’ve seen its images leak along with partial specifications recently after which there’s been another leak which revealed what kind of screen will Galaxy Alpha sport once its out.
We’ve already heard that the device might get launched before IFA and now we have a specific date to share with you. According to SamMobile, Samsung’s premium Galaxy Alpha handset might launch on August 4, which is next Monday. This would basically fill the void until we see Galaxy Note 4 launched, probably this September at IFA. To sum up, this device is expected to feature a 720p panel on the front (this is the most legible rumor we have), alongside Snapdragon 805 chip and 3GB of RAM. The mentioned display is expected to be 4.7 or 4.8″ (perhaps the Galaxy S3 panel) in dimensions.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, these specs sound fishy as hell. Everything adds up except for the screen resolution. It just doesn’t make sense to include a Snapdragon 805 chip and 3GB of RAM in a device and put a 720p screen on there, at least that’s not Samsung’s way. I personally wouldn’t mind it, heck, I’d welcome it. However, that’s not what most people want, and besides I can’t see how will this fit in Samsung’s marketing plans. Oh well, we’ll find out soon.
