Samsung Galaxy Prime was expected to arrive last month, but it looks like those rumors about its launch missed the target. Now industry insiders claim that Samsung's first metallic body flagship could arrive as soon as next month but its name will be Galaxy Alpha.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha (some sources also mention Galaxy F as a possible name) received its Bluetooth certification earlier this month and its rumored specs include an Exynos 5 Octa processor, a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display and a premium design which includes a metallic body, as mentioned above. It is also expected that this smartphone will be thinner than both Samsung's own Galaxy S5 and Apple's iPhone 5S. Another inside report reveals that the handset is internally known as "card-phone" due to its slimness.
According to Korean news portal ETNews, the new flagship from Samsung will launch with the mission "to counter the iPhone 6 scheduled to be released in September" and will be part of a whole new lineup, different from the company's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. Remains to be seen how many of these rumors will be confirmed next month.
