After many months of speculation, Samsung finally took the wraps off of the Galaxy Alpha today. This one is all about the design as JK Shin said “The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market.”

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.

Samsung has had tremendous success during the last couple of years, but due to changes in the global smartphone market, Samsung is going to have to “tighten the belt.”

Samsung’s operating profit dropped to the lowest point in two years, which is a whopping 25 percent swing. Analysts believe that Samsung will need to starting trimming some of the fat.
