Samsung Galaxy Alpha set to fight with iPhone 6

Wednesday 13/08/2014 Samsumg released its new Android powered smartphone Samsung Galaxy Alpha and said that it will hit the shelves by the early September this year . Apple still not has given any kind of indication of releasing iPhone 6 but alpha is considered as the competitor for it. Samsung has dropped it's ideal plastic body and has given a metal body to this new device. Despite of the metal finish of device, it delivers users with same powerful hardware and features that can be expected from a flagship galaxy device, according to Samsung spokesperson Ashley Gregory.



Getting towards the specs the new flagship device is powered by 1860 mAh battery has a powerful "dual quad core" processor i.e. a Quad core 1.8 GHz  Cortex A-15 & 1.3 GHz Cortex A-7 chip. A 4.7 inch super AMOLED screen with 720x1280 pixels screen having 312ppi.It comes with an 32 Gigs of internal storage with no external card slot it could be considered as a limitation and also it comes with 2 Gigs of RAM and Android 4.4.4 kitkat OS. Pretty nice and cool specs. 


Talking about the body it has the metal framing only on it's side frame Samsung continues the removable plastic back. It weighs 115 gms lighter then the S5. It comes with the "Apple inspired" fingerprint sensor. Only 6.7mm is the thickness of the device. A 12 MP primary and 2.1 MP secondary camera is something to be expected less from it. Having Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and a heartrate sensor.


The move of metal body after years of samsung being stuck  to plastic material for the devices even after competition from Apple  and HTC moved to premium body - saying that plastic construction was more durable and flexible to consumer needs. 

“The biggest problem is that Samsung keeps launching devices that are not as premium in terms of materials compared to its competitors,” said Francisco Jeronimo, European mobile devices research director for IDC, who has seen the Alpha. “If you want to charge $600 for a smartphone you cannot provide plastic covers – a metal band around the outside is not enough.”

“Going head-to-head with Apple and its iPhone 6 in September will be a tough sell,” explained Jeronimo. “As consumers start going to the store and putting one device against another, they will notice the difference in material if Apple sticks to the design scheme of the current iPhone.”
