Samsung Galaxy Alpha yet to be launched, but pre-orders accepted

By  | 

Samsung is yet to take the wraps off its Galaxy Alpha handset, but one online retailer in UK can’t hold its horses and has already started accepting pre-orders for the device for a whopping £549.

According to the listing, which is still live as of this writing [here], the Galaxy Alpha will pack Samsung’s Octa-core Exynos processor. The listing doesn’t mention the clock speed, but it would be safe to assume that it will be clocked at over 2 GHz.

Some of the other specifications of Galaxy Alpha according to the online retailer are 12-megapixel rear and a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 32GB onboard storage, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4.7″ Super AMOLED with 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution at 320 pixels per inch among other things.

The listing doesn’t specify the amount of RAM that Galaxy Alpha packs, but we expect the smartphone to pack 2GB RAM to suffice the memory requirements of the octa-core CPU.

The smartphone is said to feature a metallic design and according to latest rumours, the handset will be launched on September 13.
