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
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.

It's really about modularity and not so much having a better battery life (urban legend or not). I don't want to be forced to switch or upgrade my phone/laptop/tablet if I don't have to. Even after three years and four batteries, my HTC Thunderbolt continued to work phenomenally (until it took a nasty drop recently) and my Dell XPS 15 (from 2011) still works great as a gaming/school/work laptop being on my 2nd battery.

Thank you very much.
Though in all honesty, you don't have to upgrade just because the non-removable battery died. The manufacturer is always happy to replace your $20 battery for a $100 fee.
