Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha made headlines when it launched earlier this year because it was the first Samsung smartphone to feature some metal in its design. Now Samsung is taking things a step further with the Galaxy Alpha by throwing in some leather as well.
Samsung France has announced that it’ll offer super-limited editions of the Galaxy Alpha with leather backsides. The phones are designed by shoe company Free Lance and artist Jean-Baptiste Rautureau for women and men, respectively. There will be just 100 leather-clad Galaxy Alpha units sold.
While the outside of these Galaxy Alpha units are different than the standard plastic-backed models, the insides are all the same. That means that the device has a 4.7-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 12-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
There’s no word yet on how much these limited, leather-ified Galaxy Alpha models will cost, but we’re betting that they won’t be cheap.
