More images of Samsung Galaxy Alpha surface from Russian source

samsung_galaxy_alpha_russian_leak_01

Yesterday we saw where Samsung had quietly slipped the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in as a sponsor for a yachting regatta in Moscow. Today, more images of the device have surfaced thanks to a Russian source. One of the interesting shots shows the results of an AnTuTu benchmark run on the device that puts it above the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. While an Exynos 5 octa-core processor that supposedly powers the device helps, much of the performance gain could be due to the lower resolution screen of the Galaxy Alpha. This frees up the processor for other chores outside of producing graphics and makes a strong case for full HD screens being overkill on devices like smartphones that have small displays.

Galaxy Alpha

Oh boy, Samsung’s really asking for it here.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha has some more leaked photos, this time alongside an iPhone 5s. We previously thought the new device looked a bit familiar, and now it’s pretty obvious where Samsung took its design cues from.

Of course they’re not exactly alike — the Alpha is 7.6mm thin (thinner than the iPhone), ¬†features a removable, 1,850mAh battery, an Exynos 5 Octa chipset with four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores, 32GB internal memory and a Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution. The phone also has a 12MP camera with LED flash and ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Hit the break for the photos of the device alongside the iPhone 5s.
