Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha Release Date with Top 5 Best Features
Samsung is planning to give Apple’s iPhone 6 a worthy opponent: the Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha (also known as Samsung Galaxy F). The handset is rumored to already have started production this month, and it is believed to be released in the month of August. Today we thought we would cover the most exciting features that Samsung will offer us when they release the new smartphone.
Everybody seems to agree that the new Samsung handset will be equipped with a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen. When it comes to the display size, we hear many rumors: either that the display will have 5.2 inches, either 4.8 or 4.7 inches. Either way, we can see that the device will have a large display that will provide a very pleasant user experience.
Processor and OS
We can see that the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a quad core processor working at 2.5 GHz that is paired up with the Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC chipset from Qualcomm and Adreno 330 GPU. Samsung is improving in this department, seeing how there have been rumors about two processors powering the Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha: either an octa core with an Exynos 5433 chipset or a quad core paired up with a Snapdragon 805 chipset from Qualcomm. The last one is said to come with Adreno 420 graphics and to be working at 2.5 GHz. The operating system for the Galaxy S5 is Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but the Galaxy F will come with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
If a great camera is a game changer for you, you’ll find the Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha very appealing: the handset comes with a 16MP primary camera with a multitude of features, while the secondary camera of 2MP does not disappoint either. If you are a selfie junkie, we suggest jumping this smartphone since it will be your best friend when posting photos on Facebook or Instagram.
When the Samsung Galaxy S5 hit the market, a bunch of people were very excited about the fingerprint scanner feature that the device brought to the table, as a bonus in phone security. If you were part of that group of people, you will be very happy to find out that the Galaxy F handset will also have this feature, according to GSM Arena.
If you’re always working out and you like your phone to have some features to help you out when you’re sweating, find out that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha will come with a Heart Rate Monitor, to help establish your heart rate and keep you in a healthy state. If you already were a fan of this feature in the Samsung Galaxy S5, you will be very pleased with the new handset.
Now, seeing what a fierce competition the new smartphone will be for the iPhone 6, we’ll just have to wait to see if the rumored August release is true and if the Samsung Galaxy F is all that it is expected to be.
