Samsung Galaxy Alpha Comes with Metallic Edges in Irish Markets; to Rival Apple iPhone 6 Models

September 22, 2014, By Alex Badinici

The winds of change have been cruising through Samsung. The arrival of the posh new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have prompted the Korean mobile giants to get into the act to rival Apple in a much more effective manner.

The counterblow from Samsung to Apple kicked off in the Irish markets. Sammy has shunned plastic exteriors to its devices and brought forth rigs that sport metallic edges so as to beat the latest boys from Cupertino.

Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha range of smartphones has been spruced up with new sleek outfit for the Irish terrain.


Though Samsung seems to have stayed away in bringing up alterations to the device specs, the warm new outlook of the Galaxy Alpha indeed stands out.

The 4.7 inch screen smartphone hasn’t quite been the flagship model for Samsung. And that’s exactly why the fresh change has showed up on the device.

Had it been on the flagship Note 4 or Galaxy S5, the move could have been termed a gamble. However, the strategy is to introduce Galaxy Alpha to the Irish markets to essentially rival the new iPhones.

The Galaxy Alpha is packed with quad-core processing capabilities of Cortex A-15, clocked at 1.8 GHz. Loaded with 2 GB RAM, the device certainly takes its place above the mid-range models from Samsung, lacking slightly only on the display front .


The 4.7 inch screen offers a 720p resolution with 312 ppi of pixel density. The 12 MP camera on the rear is accompanied by the 2.1 MP camera on its front.

With iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus staying away from the Irish outlets at least until next Friday, Samsung has pushed the buttons quite early with this launch in Dublin. The device has been priced at €600 for the Irish markets.
