Not too long ago, the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha went on sale in the UK through Unlocked Mobiles, but it’s not the retailer who will offer the handset.
Another giant UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has started taking pre-orders of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, with prices starting at £33 per month. The retailer also has the SIM-Free variant of the handset, which is priced at £529.95 — almost £30 more than what Unlocked Mobiles is asking for.
Currently, the handset is only available in white and black color options, with the blue and silver one up for pre-orders. It’s also worth mentioning that Carphone Warehouse will exclusively sell the blue colored Samsung Galaxy Alpha in the UK.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes with a 4.7-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, with a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, the metal-clad handset doesn’t offer expandable storage.
There’s a 12MP rear camera for photos and videos, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 1,860 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat as its operating system out of the box. Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes with a slim and sleek design, with a metal frame, measuring 132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm and weighs only 115 grams.
