Samsung Galaxy Alpha May Launch This Week
GalaxyS5 , News , smart phones / August 12, 2014

If you’re holding out for the Galaxy Alpha, you may be in luck, because sources reveal Samsung is planning to launch the variant this week. The Galaxy Alpha, previous dubbed the Galaxy F and Galaxy Prime, will boast an entirely new body design (see photo above). Normally, Samsung aims for a sleek, thin design with rounded corners — a standard among major smartphone manufacturers. The Galaxy Alpha takes a different approach, however, as it’s noticeably thicker with squared-off corners. Even so, reports suggest the Galaxy Alpha is still thinner than the Apple iPhone 5S, striking another win for Samsung in its battle against Apple. Leaked photos of the Galaxy Alpha also reveal a new material used in the design of its body. The current Galaxy S5 launch-edition features an all-plastic body, which is both lightweight and durable. However, critics claim the all-plastic body is somewhat cheap and doesn’t coincide with Samsung’s objective of producing cutting-edge smartphones and mobile devices. Will the Galaxy Alpha use an all-metal body instead? Based on the leaked photos, it appears it will use at least some metal parts in its body (possibly aluminum?). Whether or not it’s an all-metal body, however, remains to be seen….

GalaxyS5 , smart phones / February 4, 2014

There’s a good chance we’ll see Samsung official pull the curtains and unveil their next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, by the end of the month. Less than 24 hours ago, Samsung posted details of the company’s Upacked 5 event, which takes place at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain on February 24th. Is it just a coincident that a 5 is in the event’s name? Samsung’s Unpacked 5 Event The official Samsung blog stated the following: “At previous Samsung Unpacked events, we’ve shown you the ‘The Next Big Thing.’ On March 2013, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S4, on September 2013, Galaxy Note 3 and Gear. These events were also live-streamed on official Samsung channels. Live blogging was also available on Samsung Tomorrow.” Last year, Samsung used the Unpacked event to unveil the Galaxy S4, so it only makes sense for them to replicate their formula for success with the Galaxy S5.The Galaxy S4 remains one of the hottest — if not the hottest — smartphone currently on the market. It’s loaded with features, a fast processor, a massive 13-megapixel camera and much more. However, I think it’s safe to say that Samsung will trump this device with their upcoming…
