THE SAMSUNG GALAXY ALPHA has arrived, and looks to challenge the iPhone and HTC One with its metal frame and octa-core processor.

Samsung has finally unveiled the new Galaxy Alpha; a 4.7-inch Android handset that runs on the company’s own octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM and is backed by six-core Mali-T628 GPU

The new Samsung Galaxy Alpha looks like a miniature Galaxy Tab S 8.4 with its thin body complete with metal trims around it and a perforated back panel.

The Galaxy Alpha is one of the first Samsung smartphones to boast a metal frame, which is thinner than the iPhone 5S at 6.7mm thick. Unlike the iPhone however, the Galaxy Alpha doesn't feature a full metal casing, and instead retains the perforated plastic rear found on the Samsung Galaxy S5. It will be available in the same colours, too - black, white, blue and gold.

Release dateSamsung quietly announced the Galaxy Alpha, as rumours had suggested, on 13 August, revealing that it will be available in the UK from the beginning of September. Samsung has yet to announce a specific release date.
Ahead of its unveiling, UK SIM-free retailer Mobilefun prematurely started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, outing its price as £549.
However, Samsung has yet to announce pricing for the smartphone, nor has EE, which promptly announced it would be selling the handset.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha, which was the subject of multiple online leaks under the guise of the "Samsung Galaxy F" and "Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime" ahead of its unveiling, doesn't feature many surprises.
