With so many different reports floating all over the web, it is becoming clear that Samsung will indeed launch the Galaxy Alpha later in the year.

Under the hood is an octa-core CPU, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. The leaked picture claims the device won't support an option to expand internal memory using microSD card.
Additionally, the handset also comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front-facing shooter for selfies. Other specifications include: a fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and an 1860mAh battery fitted inside.
It is learnt that the upcoming phone will be made available in a 64GB on-board storage. As far as the price is concerned, the Galaxy Alpha is expected to cost a whooping R$2,399. Notably, the supposed handset might go official between the end of August and start of September.
