Samsung reportedly to launch the Galaxy ALPHA metal body smartphone, tough competitor for iPhone 6.

Sales for the Galaxy S5 might not be ended so well. The S5 was criticized for the band-aid look back case, design that most of people did not like it at all, and for the saturated market of high ended smartphones slowing down the demand.

However Samsung is said to be preparing a tough answer to the iPhone 6 coming this September, with finally a metal body based device, the GALAXY ALPHA that could be ready for a launch next month August.

Since the beginning of time, Samsung fans have longed for a Galaxy flagship device with a metal exterior, so this could possibly be the time.

According to ETNews, the Galaxy Alpha – specs of which are currently unknown – will go against Samsung’s tradition of launching a Galaxy S flagship in the first half of a year and a Galaxy Note flagship in the second, and could see a change in the company’s strategy. However, we’re guessing that even if the Galaxy Alpha does launch as a flagship product, it probably won’t be a big part of Samsung’s strategy but will instead be a limited offering like the Galaxy S5 LTE-A.
Is this the time for a foldable smartphone version?
