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 would like to see some benchmarks on that. The last generation Octa chips failed to live up to the hype. Do these really smoke the 801? Just asking, honestly don't know.

It's early, so you cant say for sure this is the speed it will be released at...

It's supposed to be designed to fix the problems of the previous gen. Any way you count it, its 4 A15 cores, if it fixed the issues of the 5410 and 5420 it will scream.

/edit

Then again, it wouldnt be unlikely that teh US versions would have Snap 801 or 805 anyhow.

Whichever, it's not a "low or mid range device". It's definitely high end...

Exynos 5430 is the first 20nm ARM CPU in the world. It more power efficient than any of the older Exynos, and also support HEVC (H.265) hardware decoder

And benchmarks shown that it can compete with snadragon 801 which is used by most high-end android phones in 2014
