IFA 2014: Samsung Galaxy Alpha


The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the first Galaxy smartphone with a metal body. Many have been requesting Samsung to stir away from its cheap plastic build on its smartphones and do what its competition is doing – putting premium materials in to the hardware. The phone was announced last month but it was only at IFA, a yearly consumer electronics show in Berlin, that the phone was seen live.
