Yet another set of pictures of the long rumored Samsung Galaxy Alpha has surfaced on the Web. The smartphone which is rumored to be released alongside iPhone 6, shows off its brushed metal frame on the sides, and shiny chrome rig around the corners.

The Korean technology giant last week reported its quarterly earnings. The giant has suffered three consecutive drops in profits. In a press release, Samsung said that it will launch several new smartphones and wearable in coming months.


Last month, several images of the black variant of Alpha did rounds on the Web. According to which, the phone is slated to possess a 4.8-inch display with 720p screen resolution. The smartphone is tipped to pack in quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor or octa-core Exynos 5 Octa 5433.

The earlier leaks suggested that the phone will have a 12MP shooter at the rear with LED flash, and 2MP camera upfront. It will come with 2 gigs of RAM and 32Gb of non-expandable memory and Android KitKat 4.4.4 running out of the box.

We can’t help but to notice how Samsung has gone back to the iPhone-ish looks with Galaxy Alpha. Yes, many (including us) have ridiculed Samsung for sub-par plastic on their smartphones as well as dull and boring design language, but this one looks dangerously close to the iPhone 4/4S.

The company is also expected announce the Galaxy Note 4 phablet next month. At this point we are not sure if it will launch both the devices at once, or will it hold the Galaxy Alpha event to sync it with Apple’s iPhone 6 launch.

More on this as it develops.
