Galaxy Alpha full specs leaked, device also spotted at yachting event in Russia
Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha specs may finally be confirmed, with many falling in line with previous speculation. A purported spec sheet for the device has emerged online, with the source claiming to have taken the photo from Samsung’s own marketing materials, reports SamMobile.
The leaked image confirms that the Galaxy Alpha will sport a 4.7-inch 1080x720p Super AMOLED display, feature 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with no option to expand using microSD cards. Under the hood, it is said to run Samsung’s own Exynos octo-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and 1.3GHz and is said to include a fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitor, 4G LTE, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0 and an 1860mAh battery.
Camera wise, the device is said to house a 12MP main shooter along with a 2.1MP front selfie snapper. A 64GB model is also said to be in the works and the price in Brazil is claimed to start from R$2,399 (£625). The device will reportedly be announced between the end of August and start of September, probably during the IFA tech show which kicks off in Berlin in the first week of September. The Galaxy Note 4 is almost certain to be introduced during the show too.
Intriguingly, the Galaxy Alpha also made a just about official appearance at a yachting event in Moscow, reports GSMArena. The device was highlighted on various banners during the event over the weekend, and poses with several event attendees. However, the original images were taken down pretty shortly, suggesting that its appearance is probably a little bit ahead of plans.
