The Galaxy Alpha will reportedly come in 4.7" and 6.7" varieties

We’ve been hearing about Samsung’s metal-trimmed smartphone for quite some time, with pictures of the device popping up regularly around the web. Today, we’re getting some of best images of the devices to date along with a few more details on the new smartphone family.
 
The images show that the Galaxy Alpha sports chamfered edges like the iPhone 5/5S. The metal band wraps all the way around the sides of the smartphone, but the back of the device will still be made from plastic like all previous Galaxy designs.

 
We’ve already seen the 4.7” Galaxy Alpha in black — and here in white — but there will also be a larger 6.7” model according to The Verge and the Weibo forums.
 
Although we know nothing about the specs of the larger model, the 4.7” Galaxy Alpha is said to include a 720p display, fingerprint reader, 32GB of storage, and a Samsung Exynos processor.

I don't think so. Most samsung phones do have those features, some even have dual SIM card slots. Judging by the low-res screen i would say that these are meant for developing markets, where people often cannot afford both a tablet and a phone (thus the 6.7" screen makes sense for them).
So not including certain features might just save samsung a few pennies so they can hit a lower price point in india or africa.
But out here in the west, nothing prevents you from buying a note or galaxy tab instead. The alpha is not a replacement for them, it's merely another option
