Samsung has lost a lot of its smartphones market share to Chinese Xiaomi. In a bid to retain the remaining market share, and with a hope to recapture some of its lost ground in the middle and lower-end market for smartphone devices, the company launched its Galaxy alpha.
Features of Samsung Galaxy Alpha
By cutting down on a metallic frame and using plastic frame instead, Samsung has managed to reduce the cost of these gadgets a bit. Its HD AMOLED screen is of 4.7 inches and the resolution of this screen is 720 pixels by 1280x. Other specifications of Galaxy Alpha have been lowered. The device continues to have the fingerprint recognition technology, which Samsung launched with its Galaxy S5. But most of the other specifications have been lowered. Its 12MP camera is nothing to write home about.
Prominent amongst these is the octa-core chip. The device runs on Android Kit Kat, which is 4.4.4 version of Android OS. Its 32 GB storage provided internally cannot be expanded because there is no expansion slot for using Micro SD. The device has 2G RAM.
Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha may actually eat into its Galaxy S5’s market share if it is introduced as metallic version.
