Weeks ago, Samsung had revealed that the Galaxy Alpha was intended to be the first device in the South Korean phone maker's upcoming A series of handsets. This soon-to-be-launched new generation of smartphones is expected to have new features, and some of them are already highlighted in the Galaxy Alpha, which was released just last month in August.
By launching four new products, Samsung certainly made the most of its opportunity at the 2014 Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) trade show held in Berlin. One of the new products they launched is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the follow-up to the Note 3, which the South Korea-based mobile manufacturing company unveiled twelve months ago.
Without dwelling too much on the new smartphone's specifications, Samsung showed a bit more enthusiasm in expounding on the Note 4's features, namely its 176-gram weight, its 8.5-mm thickness, and its LTE category 6 capability.
More than a year ago, Samsung introduced a prototype of a smartphone that featured a curved screen which wraps around the right-handed area. Called Youm, that prototype eventually would give way to another curved-screen Samsung handset -- the Galaxy Note Edge, which is expected to be released this fall.
Nokia announced last Friday that the Finnish mobile manufacturing company has teamed up with Samsung in order to bring its Here app to Android-run Galaxy smartphones and to Samsung's Tizen-based smartwatches.
For those not in the know, Here is a mapping app that Nokia developed and kept, even when software giant Microsoft purchased the Finland-based phone maker's mobile device segment. The Here app was only available for devices that run on Windows 8 or Windows Phone.
When Samsung recently introduced Galaxy Alpha, its newest addition to the Galaxy smartphone line, much excitement brewed especially with regards to the smartphone's stylish new look. Now, consumers will even get more stoked about the soon-to-be-available product when they learn that it will be using a revolutionary smartphone chip.
After much anticipation, Samsung finally released the most recent addition to its Galaxy smartphone line -- the Galaxy Alpha. The South Korean telecoms giant's newest smartphone offering features a slim, compact design that boasts a stylish metal frame and elegant finish. While its new, sleek look should turn heads, Samsung is quick to note that with the Galaxy Alpha's powerful hardware and features, it should provide customers with a user experience that combines sophisticated design with reliable functionality.
With stiff competition not only from rivals Apple (with the iPhone 5 series and soon to be iPhone 6), but also from other Android manufacturers like HTC and LG, Samsung has been looking to gain back influence and market share in the mobile phone industry. Ever since the disappointment that was the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung has been looking to bounce back, and it looks like they'll make their attempt with the rumored Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
