Samsung launches limited edition Galaxy Alpha Free Lance Bordeaux in France


France is home to some of the most iconic fashion designers and artists in the world and Samsung has teamed up with two of them, Free Lance and Jean-Baptiste Rautureau, in order to create a new, exclusive variant of the Galaxy Alpha, entitled the Free Lance Bordeaux.

Each model comes with four tailor-made leather back covers, which can be changed at your leisure thanks to the Galaxy Alpha’s removable backplate and battery. However, only 100 units will be produced, making this device extremely limited — so if you want to get your hands on one you’ll have to act fast. Every Free Lance Bordeaux unit will be individually numbered and come signed with a certificate of authenticity in the box.

In terms of specifications, this device is identical to the original Alpha which launched back in September, packing a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, an octa-core Exynos 5430 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 32GB of non-expandable storage.

The handset will run the latest build of Android 4.4.4 KitKat skinned Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, which the South Korean company claims is “the easier way to use your device or tablet, giving you intuitive handling of everyday tasks.” However, it is expected to receive the much-anticipated Lollipop update in the not-too-distant future.

This limited edition model of the Galaxy Alpha is exclusive to France and is currently listed as “In Stock” on Samsung’s website with a €649 (including tax) price tag.
