Samsung Makes mHealth a Cornerstone of its New Galaxy Alpha Smartphone

Samsung Makes mHealth a Cornerstone of its New Galaxy Alpha SmartphoneHaving 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.
