Bangalore, October 20 2014: The first thing that catches your eye is the compact and sleek design of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Among a range of bigger and bulkier smartphones, the folks at Samsung seem to have positioned the Galaxy Alpha as their ‘diet’ version. Weighing just 115 gms, this phone snuggly fits in your palm.
Samsung has struck the right balance looks and strength; between a polycarbonate shell and a metal frame. The soft matte finish, elegantly curved edges and tactile soft back cover gives the Alpha a rather stylish look.
Featuring a 4.7 inch HD super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, the phone is just 6.7 mm thick (making it the slimmest Samsung phone yet) and comes with a fingerprint sensor. Another feature is the 12 MP (rear) and 2.1 MP front camera with advanced photography and editing functions.
For your high-end computing needs, the Android KitKat-fuelled Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes with an 8-Core processor and 32 GB of internal storage . It is future-proof and 4G ready.
At an asking price of Rs. 39,990, this might be a good bet if opulence and a sleek design are your considerations, assuming you are not too budget conscious. -- Sudakshina.V
