As expected, the Galaxy Alpha features a compact body with a metal frame. It has 4.8-inch 720p display along with 32 GB storage and still retaining hallmarks of Galaxy S5 like a fingerprint scanner.

The phone is also one of the slimmest Galaxy devices ever with 6.7mm thickness. It sports a 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED (720x1280p) display and is powered by Samsung's Exynos octal core processor featuring 1.8GHz quad-core and a 1.3GHz quad-core processors, and 2GB RAM.

The smartphone has a 12MP rare camera, which supports 4K video recording, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera.

In terms of connectivity, the phone offers support for WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC. It comes with an 1860mAh battery.
