Samsung Galaxy Alpha launch pushed back to August 13, will have Exynos 5433, 12MP camera

We’ve got new information on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha where a trusted source has stated that August 4 launch has been rescheduled on short notice and the device is now expected to get unveiled on the 13th. Additionally, previously unknown details of the hardware components have been revealed.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha went from being a high-end flagship phone with a 2K display and Snapdragon 805 to a mid-range handset with a metal design in just a couple of months. Previous leaks apparently mixed up the information with the S5 LTE-A’s causing the whole confusion. Well, we’ve finally gotten on the right track with confirmed images of the phone showing up and now, the specs.
