Galaxy Alpha to offer 8-core Exynos processor, 12MP camera


After Samsung showed off its upcoming Galaxy Alpha for the first time at a Russian yachting event this weekend, the handset’s internal specifications and price tag have been leaked.

As previously rumored, the Galaxy Alpha is set to pack a 4.7-inch 720p display, an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD), a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, IP67 certified – dust and water resistance, a heart rate sensor, and a 2,800 mAh Li-Ion removable battery.

The report suggests that the Alpha will have a price tag of R$2, 399 when it goes on sale this fall in Brazil — which is approximately USD$1048.

As with all leaks, rumors and speculation, we have to take this pricing and specification information with a large pinch of salt until Samsung provides us with some solid evidence with regards to what it has in store for the first variant of its upcoming flagship smartphone, which shouldn’t be too long now, seeing as IFA is just around the corner.
