Samsung plans Galaxy Alpha smartphones

The famous smartphone maker Samsung appears to plan a new line of smartphones, known as Alpha. The most important feature of the new rumored line is that all smartphones that will belong to Alpha will come with metallic chassis.

The first pictures of the first Galaxy Alpha smartphone have been now leaked online and they show a device that does indeed have a metallic chassis, although only covering the smartphone trims. The device reportedly has a 4.7-inch display at 720p resolution, a fingerprint scanner, 32 GB of internal memory (although it cannot be upgraded) and an Exynos 5 Octa or a Snapdragon 800 processor.

This first version of the Galaxy Alpha is likely to be a preliminary version so changes can be expected here and there. The Galaxy Alpha is not intended to become a high-end device, though, so do not expect it to push the Galaxy S line down the ladder. Later a version with support for LTE-A can be expected.
