The Galaxy Alpha is also available with LTE-A and a Snapdragon chip


We’ve been hearing an awful lot about Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Alpha, for some time now. Five variants of the handset have been confirmed to date, the SM-G850A, SM-G850H, SM-G850M, SM-G850T and the SM-G850F — which has now its been exposed as an LTE-Advanced model.

The SM-G850F passed through the Global Certification Forum (GCF) last week, and documentation included in the filing reveals that the variant incorporates LTE Cat. 6 support, therefore disclosing that we’re looking at an LTE-A model of the Galaxy Alpha that will need to be powered by a Qualcomm chip, but it’s unknown which one, yet. If we had to hazard a guess, we’d say the Snapdragon 805.

As previously rumored, the Galaxy Alpha is believed to pack a 4.7-inch 720p display, 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, a fingerprint scanner and a 2,800 mAh Li-Ion removable battery.
