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.

RE: A solid "meh"

I have three extra batteries, one of which is double the capacity of the OEM and comes with a bigger "door" to accommodate it, and it just so happens that extra bulk makes it a much easier phone to handle than the uber thin ones that exist today. Og an yeah the battery lasts twice as long..
Maybe I'm the minority but I do know others who have extra batteries as well. As for the dropping the phone issue, having the battery pop out is a good thing. If a phone can flex when dropped then there may be a lower chance of the screen cracking. Overly rigid phones result in more cracked screens. The iPhone comes to mind. I have dropped my Galaxy S Blaze onto hard floors at least 20-25 times and never a screen failure. I doubt most iphones can handle that.
