Launched late last year at the same time as the Galaxy Note 4, you could be forgiven for not remembering about the Galaxy Alpha. The device was AT&T exclusive, which prevented it from reaching a wider audience. But today on eBay, you can get an unlocked model for just $259.99.
This particular listing has just the White and Gold models available, and the Black model is out of stock. The device comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box, but it is rumored that it will get Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime soon. Here are the specs of the Galaxy Alpha if you don’t remember:
4.7-inch SuperAMOLED screen at 312ppi
Octa-core Exynos CPU with four cores at 1.8GHz and four at 1.3GHz
2GB of RAM
32GB of storage
A 12-megapixel rear camera
A 1,860mAh battery.
This particular eBay model is an unlocked AT&T unit with support for LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 17, so keep that in mind if you’re using it on another carrier. While not the most highly-specced device out there, it is still a good purchase if you want an off-contract or unlocked device. Are you interested in purchasing one?
