Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha outperforms their own flagship device Galaxy S5

Few hours back Samsung unveiled  its latest Android smartphone.The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha will be able to hold its own in a battle of processor wits against the Korean manufacturer’s own flagship Galaxy S5 and even the HTC One M8.A leaked image revealed the device running an AnTuTu benchmark score of 38248, which handily trumps not only HTC’s latest, but also a trio of Samsung’s most coveted hardware, including the Galaxy S5.Judging purely from outward appearance, the Galaxy Alpha looks remarkably like the aforementioned Galaxy S5, right down to the metal frame, glass display and plastic rear shell, but it’s apparently the performance counts.


Earlier rumors have highlighted that the Galaxy Alpha is running an Exynos 5433 processor, the latest round of leaks suggest a more powerful octa-core 1.8GHz Exynos 5 Octa chipset is on board, complete with 2GB RAM and hexa-core Mali-T628 GPU.The Galaxy Alpha could also be the first Samsung handset to support a nano-SIM card, based on a trio of leaked images that appear to be a close-up look at just such an ejectable metal slot.

As the previous leaks reported the device will have a 4.7-inch 720p HD display running Android 4.4 KitKat, 1,850mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity and the usual dual cameras (12MP on back, 2.1MP around front).
