• Samsung Ready to Challenge iPhone 6 with Galaxy Alpha



    With less than one month remaining until Apple unveils its long awaited iPhone 6, Samsung is hoping to gain some early momentum on the refreshed iPhone by showing off its newest smartphone -- the Galaxy Alpha.

    Available to consumers in September, Galaxy Alpha is seen by many analysts as the company's latest attempt to curtail its dwindling market share.

    The new Android device, we're told, serves up a sophisticated design in a compact body with a metal frame and a solid finish. "At less than 7 mm thick, the Galaxy Alpha is also one of the slimmest Galaxy devices ever, and its uniquely compact construction and light weight provides consumers with maximum in-hand grip and control," Samsung boasts.

    The Galaxy Alpha will initially be available in 5 colors: Charcoal Black, Dazzling White, Frosted Gold, Sleek Silver, and Scuba Blue.

    The device is equipped with a brilliant 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display as well as an advanced camera and real time HDR for an unrivaled viewing and photo experience. The Galaxy Alpha also includes innovative and popular features such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, S Health, Finger Print Scanner, Private Mode and connectivity with the latest Samsung Gear Fit, Gear Live and Gear 2 wearables.
    Looking for the price tag? Well, that hasn't been set yet. But we're bound to know soon enough.

      If that home button was round, that could be the new iPhone 6!

      No BS it really does! I'll bet this will never make it to the states! Apple would have a field day with them!

      Looks just like the iPhone. Why am I not surprised?

      I think the screen is only 1280x720.

      First it looks like its promoting that they are offering the same colors as the iPhone 5s. Second it looks like that you can set it up on its side so you don't have to look at the face of it. I think it's a solid campaign!

      It looks like Samsung saw the iPhone 6 mockups and decided, "Yeah, let's make that! Then we'll brag about how we did it 'first'!"

      Look, there's even a camera slider on the bottom right. Are you f'in kidding me?

      I think it needs a few changes. How about a round home button, iOS 8, and an apple logo on the back side?
