Samsung Galaxy Alpha Is Ready to Fight the iPhone 6 with Octa-Core Processor and SuperAMOLED screen
The one feature that doesn’t make sense on its own is the screen size; Samsung opted to give the Galaxy Alpha a 4.7-inch HD (1,280 x 720) display, which is a little on the small side when stacked against today’s flagships like the LG G3 and Samsung’sown Galaxy S5.
However, it looks like a more logical choice when you factor in rumors about the coming iPhone 6, which is predicted to have a 4.7-inch display as well.Samsung’s mobile product designs are becoming more directly comparable to Apple equivalents, seen most recently — and plainly — in the company’s iPad rivals, the Galaxy Tab S tablets.
Apple is also rumored to have another size iPhone in the works, of course, a 5.5-inch “phablet” iPhone, but Samsung has more than enough plus-size phones, including the coming Samsung Galaxy Note 4, to take on any biggie iPhone that comes to pass (and it may be a while).
The display is a SuperAMOLED screen, and the 12-megapixel camera in back can even capture 4K video (at 30 frames per second). It’s powered by an octa-core processor (quad 1.8GHz and quad 1.3GHz) and ships with Android 4.4.4 “KitKat.”
