After months of rumors and speculation, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha has finally become official. Announced on Wednesday, the Android-powered smartphone ushers in a new design language that offers users  a compact body with a metal frame. If you ask us, Alpha is a fitting name for the beginning of a new look.

Powered by an octa-core processor (4X 1.8GHz cores, 4X 1.3GHz cores) with 2GB RAM, the Galaxy Alpha also features a 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display and 12-megapixel rear camera. Capable of shooting 4K video, the smartphone packs a number of custom software tools and features, including Shot & More, Beauty Face, and Selective Focus. Other specifications include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera.

In terms of software, the Galaxy Alpha runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat with a host of Samsung apps and services. As often is the case with their handsets you’ll find Ultra Power Savings Mode, Quick Connect, S Health, Finger Print Scanner, and Private Mode.

Samsung expects to ship the Galaxy Alpha in early September in a number of color options: Charcoal Black, Dazzling White, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver, and Scuba Blue. Pricing, market availability, and colors will be announced closer to release.
