Samsung Introduces GALAXY Alpha, the evolution of the GALAXY Design
The latest addition to Samsung’s GALAXY smartphone line, the GALAXY Alpha features a sophisticated design in a carefully constructed compact body with a metal frame and a solid finish, while still maintaining the flagship GALAXY experience. Elegant and practical, the GALAXY Alpha is the optimal convergence of style and cutting-edge technology.
“The GALAXY Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market,” said Lee Dong Yong, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “With an entirely new appearance, the GALAXY Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality combining a stunning metal frame and a slim, light weight design with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship GALAXY mobile device.”
The Samsung GALAXY Alpha launch event also introduced Samsung’s α-listers. The GALAXY Alpha empowers consumers to express their unique style and status as Alia Bastamam, Karena Teo, Lawrence Wong and Wak Doyok will be leading the way in this new technological chapter of having “stylephones”. These four personalities are the perfect embodiments of style and substance in each of their fields, whether as a fashion designer, actor, actress and model or as a fashion icon.
These four personalities will be featured in the upcoming promotional materials and marketing communications initiatives including below the line advertising, social media updates as well as event appearances.
Setting a New Standard for Samsung GALAXY Design
Concentrating on elegant aesthetics and compact construction, Samsung has taken a fresh approach to design with the GALAXY Alpha. Created to help consumers express their unique style without sacrificing functionality, the refined GALAXY Alpha features a sophisticated design with a metal frame, elegantly curved corners and a tactile soft back cover. In addition, it is visually balanced, with the perfect contrast of both a calming, soft matte finish and an eye-catching reflection from the metal frame. At 6.7mm thin, the GALAXY Alpha is also one of the slimmest GALAXY devices ever and its uniquely compact construction and light weight provides consumers with maximum in-hand grip and control.
Powerful Samsung GALAXY Experience
Despite its slim and light design, the GALAXY Alpha provides users with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship GALAXY mobile device. The device is equipped with a brilliant 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display as well as an advanced camera and real time HDR for an unrivalled viewing and photo experience. The GALAXY Alpha also includes innovative and popular features such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, S Health, Finger Print Scanner, Private Mode and connectivity with the latest Samsung Gear Fit and Gear 2 wearables.
