Having a cool smartphone is one thing. Having a smartphone that can also make you healthier is another. But in Samsung’s case, you can have both in one device.
Samsung announced yesterday that it’s about to launch a new smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
“The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market,” says JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics.
“With an entirely new appearance,” Shin adds, “the Galaxy Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality combining a stunning metal frame and slim, light weight design with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device.”
Among the advertised features of the new smartphone are:
- A sophisticated design with a metal frame
- Elegantly curved corners
- A tactile soft back cover
- It’s less than 7 mm thick
- 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display
- An advanced camera
- Real time HDR
- Ultra-Power Saving Mode
- S Health
- Finger Print Scanner
- Private Mode
- connectivity with the latest Samsung Gear Fit, Gear Live and Gear 2 wearables
Pricing for the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha hasn’t yet been announced. But we’re told it’s coming in September. And it could very well be the best companion health-centric connected users on the Android side of the aisle could envision today.
