Samsung announces metal-clad Galaxy Alpha
After plenty of leaks, Samsung has finally announced the Galaxy Alpha, which shuns a plastic body in favour of a metallic design.

Expect to see more of this design, as Samsung calls the phone "the evolution of Galaxy Design.” The company said that this is a "new design approach."

The Galaxy Alpha’s specs aren’t quite as strong as the Galaxy S5. It features a 720p screen compared to full HD (or quad HD), while the CPU is an octa-core model (quad 1.8GHz + quad 1.3GHz), rather than the Snapdragon 801 used in the S5. It’s battery clocks in at 1,860mAh , which is nearly 1,000mAh less than the Galaxy S5.

It’s not going to be a bad handset, of course. It just won’t be quite as powerful as the Korean manufacturer’s flagship device. In more positive news, the Galaxy Alpha features the same ultra-power saving mode as the Galaxy S5, is capable of 4K video capture, comes with S Health, Gear wearable connectivity, and a fingerprint scanner.

Samsung hasn’t announced the price of the Galaxy Alpha, but has said that it will arrive in September in black, white, gold, silver and blue .
