Confusing things are happening in the Samsung world. It seems we may have been on a wild goose chase regarding the Samsung Galaxy F, a device that was expected to supersede the Galaxy S5 both in terms of performance and build quality. Instead, it appears Samsung is actually working towards releasing this: the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. SamMobile has today released a series of leaked photos of the device and if we didn’t have a device to compare it with, I’d say it looks quite a lot like the old Samsung Galaxy S2. Most notably, though, is that the Galaxy Alpha seems to be made from some kind of metallic material, though still with a faux leather back, and the screen size is pegged to be 4.7-inches.
The photo above is of the Galaxy Alpha (left) sitting next to the Galaxy S5 (right), showing that slight design difference and the discrepancy in screen size. Perhaps disappointingly, the Galaxy Alpha appears to be headed for the mid range market, slotting in between the Galaxy S5 Mini and Galaxy S5, and includes some interesting features such as a nano-SIM slot, fingerprint scanner, 32GB storage and no expansion slot. This smells a lot like a device that’s designed to take on the rumoured 4.7-inch iPhone 6 head on, which makes a lot of sense. We’re yet to see any indication of where the Galaxy Alpha will be released or how much it could cost, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
