The Galaxy Alpha comes more into focus

Just yesterday, we were graced with images of the new 4.7” Galaxy Alpha in white. Today, we’re being exposed to specs for the device along with some pictures comparing Samsung’s latest smartphone with the iPhone 5S.
According to specs posted by UK retailer Mobilefun — which were then promptly removed — the Galaxy Alpha will feature a 4.7” Super AMOLED display (1280x720, 320 PPI), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a 12MP rear camera, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. In addition, the Galaxy Alpha will come equipped with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space, and will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

But the leaks don’t stop there; new images of the Galaxy Alpha (in black) have surfaced showing how it stacks up to the iPhone 5S. When placed side-by-side, the Galaxy Alpha is at least a few millimeters thinner than the 7.6mm-thick iPhone 5S.
However, we must remember that the Galaxy Alpha will be going head-to-head with the upcoming 4.7” iPhone 6, which will also reportedly sport a thinner frame than the iPhone 5S. The images also confirm that the Galaxy Alpha features a dimpled plastic back similar to what is seen on the Galaxy S5.
And this particular model appears to feature LTE-A capabilities, which were recently introduced on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A.
