Ok, I almost spat out my drink when I saw the rumored price of this phone, $923 (£547) is a ridiculous amount of money to be spending on a phone, bare in mind though contract users, you usually pay more than this by the time your contract ends. The monstrous beast in question is Samsung’s new phone in it’s Galaxy range, the Alpha.
Not much is known about the handset itself other than a few specifications. It’s packing a beefy octa-core Exynos processor which means anything running on this phone will be smooth and quick. It comes with 32Gb of internal storage and a rather nice 12mp rear facing camera and it’ll be running Android 4.2.2 Kitkat, as you’d expect.
The phones screen is rumored to have Samsungs own Super AMOLED screen at a resolution of 1280×720 with a ppi pixel density of 320. So expect nice colours and contrasts with this new handset. other features of the Alpha include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and more. The phone is thought to be officially announced on August 15th this year, so not long to wait until be can confirm what will be powering this beast.
