There have been several reports online that claimed that Samsung is working towards developing a premium version of its recently launched flagship smartphone, Galaxy S5, and now more images have leaked online that are claimed to be that of the rumoured device.
Vietnamese blog Tinhte has released the images of a device with the name of Samsung Galaxy Alpha on the boot screen only without that rumoured premium metallic casing.
@evleaks has tweeted that the device showed in the leaked images are more similar to that of the Galaxy Note 3 and is very different from the design previously shown off in purported press renders.
The device has also featured the LTE-A logo along with the advanced 4G LTE standard available in South Korea. This suggests that it would be a limited edition device or only available in certain territories.
The Galaxy Alpha was earlier reported as identical to the S5 Prime and the Galaxy F, and is now reported as somewhere between the Galaxy S5 and the forthcoming Galaxy Note 4.
The device is likely to be equipped with a 4.7-inch screen as well as a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and a 16MP camera.
The device was likely to be commercially available in August 2014, but the company is expected to hold off until IFA 2014 in September 2014 when the company is anticipated to launch the Note.
