Samsung Galaxy Alpha captured in white, 6.7-inch version rumored

While we patiently wait to see whether the Samsung Galaxy Alpha goes official today, fresh information has surfaced suggesting that the device could go arrive in a 6.7-inch version. Also, high-resolution pictures of the 4.7-inch handset have reached the internet showcasing the smartphone for the first time in white.

The fresh images come via Weibo, notes Android Community and they showcase almost every angle of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The handset looks a lot like the current flagship, but it’s said to feature a more premium design where the frame is made from aluminum. On the downside, plastic is still the preferred material for other components such as the rear panel that continues to flaunt the dotted texture.

What’s worth mentioning is that the handset will not have a water-resistant design and we doubt that the heart rate monitor will be onboard either. On the upside, the fingerprint reader will be present along with a beefy octa core Exynos 5433 processor that’s more powerful compared to the Snapdragon 805 in synthetic benchmark tests.

The handset is said to have a 4.7-inch display with 720p HD visuals and the same Weibo user who leaked the above images has also disclosed that the handset might also come in a 6.7-inch model. Well, we’re highly skeptical about this information mainly because there’s no hard evidence to back the claim. Also, the only large screen phones we know of in the works are the Galaxy Note 4 and the Mega 2.
