The eagerly expected and rumored Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone has been officially unveiled by Samsung at a special event.

The new Samsung product comes with an exceptionally thin and light chassis that measures 132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm (total weight 114 grams) and sports a high-quality metal frame, which makes it the first Samsung smartphone to come with such an improvement. Most of the chassis is still made of plastic; four colors will be available – silver, black, white and gold.

The Galaxy Alpha is based on an Exynos 5 processor with eight cores; four of them run at 1.8 GHz while the other four at 1.3 GHz. The device also has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display at 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) and there are 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory (no microSD card slot is present, though), a rear 12 MP camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE and a 1860 mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat and has full compatibility with all wearable devices by Samsung such as Gear Fit, Gear 2 Neo, Gear 2 and Gear Live.

No word on pricing as of now.
