Samsung Galaxy Alpha Specs Seemingly Confirmed

It may not be as exciting as we all expected it to be for most of the year, but it seems like Samsung has got tongues wagging once again, with the specs for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha apparently having been confirmed by a spec sheet from the Korean firm.

The Alpha was rumoured for months before we finally got some sort of confirmation that it existed, with most of us expecting it to be a premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 with an improvement made to the build quality of the firm's flagship.

And while it does seem that some parts of the exterior of the Galaxy Alpha will be metal, as we've been predicting for some months, the specs that we've been seeing flying around, which now appear to have been confirmed, seem to show that the phone will actually be slightly less impressive than its predecessor. 

A picture that is claimed to have come straight from Samsung's own marketing department, leaked by Tecmundo, shows that the device will come with a 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display and will have a 4.7 inch screen. 

In terms of processing power, the handset is believed to be packing an Exynos octo-core processor, with CPUs running at 1.8GHz and 1.3GHz, with the picture also seeming to show that it will have 2GB of RAM and up to 32 GB of storage.

12-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, while the website also said that it expects the Korean firm to ship a slightly upgraded version with 64 GB of internal storage. 

Other specs that the marketing message seems to be confirming include many that we've seen speculated in the past few weeks, so there's little in the way of surprises there. We should see the Galaxy Alpha coming with Android 4.4 KitKat, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0 connectivity and expandable storage through a MicroSD card.
