When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Alpha a month ago, it introduced a smartphone that sports a sleek-looking metal body, which is a nice departure from the South Korean phone maker's usual plastic-clad offerings. Needless to say, Samsung's foray into metal-case smartphones has got many of its fans excited, heightening their anticipation of the Galaxy Alpha's release even more.
But unfortunately for those who can not wait to get their hands on the upcoming flagship device, Samsung has not provided any solid information regarding where the Galaxy Alpha will be made available.
Until now. It appears that an online retailer in the United States is offering the smartphone to buyers for $699.99. As a matter of fact, Expansys-USA is now selling the Dazzling White version of the Galaxy Alpha. The retailer further claimed that it currently has 14 units of the smartphone in their inventory.
It is not clear yet whether the Galaxy Alpha will ever be widely released in the US market. So it is quite possible that for diehard aficionados, this may be their only chance of grabbing their
Admittedly, $699.99 is a bit steep. But for buyers who are used to paying the full retail price for their new devices, this price tag is reasonable enough. Besides, if you have experienced buying a brand new phone from an importer before, the price is not that unusual.
Quite expectedly, Expansys-USA will not be able to provide full guarantees of network compatibility for the Galaxy Alphas they are selling. You have to remember that this smartphone is not made for American users after all. The wise thing to do would be to do your homework in researching whatever information you can find about compatibility issues before buying this device.
As of now, the Dazzling White is the only model in stock, although the silver, gold, black, and blue versions are offered for pre-ordering.
If you really need to own this beauty of a handset, then by all means go ahead and buy it. You certainly will be getting an impressive product, even by Samsung's standards. This newest flagship smartphone features a 4.7-inch 1280 by 720 super AMOLED display screen, and a 12-megapixel rear camera and 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. It packs a 1.8 GigaHertz/1.3 GigaHertz octa-core processor, including 32 gigabytes of internal storage, and 2 gigabytes of random access memory. Its other features include Ultra-Power Saving Mode, S Health, Fingerprint Scanner, Private Mode as well as easy connectivity with Samsung's Gear Fit, Gear Live and Gear 2 wearables.
