New Samsung Galaxy F / Galaxy Alpha details
The rumour mill has been churning quite a bit with hints that the largest Android device manufacturer, Samsung, may be headed into the fray of releasing full metal devices akin to the HTC One. The device was initially thought to be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime but a device fitting the bill has already launched in South Korea as the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and there is still no sign of the device aside from the rumours which are coming out regard the Galaxy F.
The biggest rumour circulating now, is that the Galaxy F, is now known as the Galaxy Alpha. The Galaxy F, now rumoured to be the Galaxy Alpha, is seemingly gaining more legitimacy with pictures of the device being leaked. Most notably, in the pictures, is the design choices of the Galaxy F, being fully metallic and taking a majority of its design cues, unsurprisingly, from the flagship Galaxy S5. The device is expected to ship with a QuadCore Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM and a bump to QuadHD resolution while keeping all the other bells and whistles of the Galaxy S5. However, according to recent rumours, this may have changed over the past few weeks, with sources such as ETNews citing that the Galaxy Alpha will come with a 4.7-inch display and the Exynos 5 Octa processor and will only be 8 millimetres thick.
The Galaxy F or Galaxy Alpha looks to be taking aim squarely at the iPhone market targeting consumers who want a smaller display size. The device is expected to be launched as soon as next month, August, possibly undercutting the launch of the iPhone 6. However, it seems like previous rumours may have had their merit as the new rumours also indicate that the device is the first in a new line of devices the Korean Manufacturer is developing.
