There isn’t much about the Galaxy Alpha that we don’t already know. Want to see what it looks like? Here you go. Specs? Right here. What’s still a mystery, however, is where these devices will be available, and for how much.
That mystery might be solved thanks to a listing on Samsung’s official site.
According to PhoneArena, who spotted a series of User Agent profiles listed by Samsung, it appears the Alpha will definitely be available in the U.S., likely through T-Mobile and AT&T—that is if we go by previous naming conventions. The official profiles for these U.S.-bound devices are SM-G850A (AT&T) and SM-G850T (T-Mobile). Meanwhile, three other model numbers are listed—SM-G850M, SM-G850F and SM-G850H—which suggest the Alpha will also be offered in international markets.
In terms of specs, previous rumors suggest the Alpha will sport a 4.8-inch 720p screen, Android 4.4 KitKat, 12-megapixel camera and a 2.3GHz quad-core chip for the U.S. market; folks overseas should expect an Exynos 5 octa-core processor. Because the device hasn’t officially been announced by Samsung, we’re not considering any of this information as fact just yet. But with each passing day, more details seem to leak out, suggesting an announcement could hit any day now.
With its alleged mid-range specs, it doesn’t appear as though this will be Samsung’s next big flagship device—not with the Note 4 just around the corner. But we’re still looking forward to seeing how the design looks in person. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon.
