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.

Even 5% is not something one would notice. It means that if a removable battery lasts 24 hours, a non-removable version would last 25 hours and 12 minutes. And that's a best case scenario.
In reality, all this non-removable trend is just supposed to force the customer to go to authorized battery changers and make them spend some more cash. As if you got the phone dirt-cheap to begin with and the manufacturer is just getting by.

I was talking about design focus. Better battery life is a better feature than removable battery. It wasn't really a comment about batteries. There are better ways to increase battery life than making the battery bigger (or removable).
