Samsung Press Release

Samsung Introduces the Galaxy Alpha

Aug 13, 2014 - Samsung launches stunning new mobile device featuring a sophisticated design in a compact body

Samsung Electronics today unveiled its new design approach with the Galaxy Alpha. The latest addition to Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone line up, the Galaxy Alpha features a stylish design in a compact body with a metal frame and a solid finish, while still maintaining the flagship Galaxy experience.

“Built with the consumer in mind, the Galaxy Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality,” said Rob Orr, Vice President, IT and Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland. “Combining a stunning metal frame and slim, light weight design with the same powerful hardware and features you’d expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device, the Galaxy Alpha is perfect for those that want style without compromising on performance.”

Setting a New Standard for Samsung Galaxy Design

Focusing on smart aesthetics and a compact frame, Samsung has taken a fresh approach to design with the Galaxy Alpha. Created to help you express your unique style the Galaxy Alpha features a sophisticated design with a metal frame, elegantly curved corners and a soft back cover. In addition, the soft matte finish is perfectly contrasted with an eye-catching reflection from the metal frame. At less than 7 mm thick, the Galaxy Alpha is also one of the slimmest Galaxy devices ever, and its ultra-compact body and light weight offers maximum in-hand grip and control.

Powerful Samsung Galaxy Experience

Despite its slim, lightweight design, the Galaxy Alpha provides the same powerful hardware and features you would expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device. It is equipped with a brilliant 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display as well as an advanced camera and real time HDR for an unrivalled viewing and photo experience. The Galaxy Alpha also includes innovative and popular features such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, S Health, Finger Print Scanner, Private Mode and connectivity with the latest Samsung Gear Fit, Gear Live and Gear 2 wearables.

The Galaxy Alpha will be available at the beginning of September. At launch, it will be available in Charcoal Black, Dazzling White, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver, and Scuba Blue.

  1. I have been waiting a long time for Samsung to release this design, I still use my Galaxy S2 even after 4 years and the Alpha has a serious 'nod' towards the same lightweight and slim design.
