Samsung Galaxy Alpha reaches Russia by yacht, while specs leak in Brazil

In two separate blows to Samsung coming from opposite sides of the world, the much touted Galaxy Alpha has been leaked in Russia and Brazil. Moreover, the gaffe in the former country comes through the company itself, which sponsored a yachting event there and didn’t bother to notice that the handset’s logos were splattered all over the promotional materials there.

According to GSM Arena, the images from this boating event in Moscow were quick to be taken down, but they were snapped up by various sites prior to that. The promotional materials there mentioned the name of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, while some attendees were also seen holding the handset while posing for pictures.
