Samsung will reportedly launch a new Galaxy series lineup dubbed Galaxy Alpha, next month.

The information comes in the courtesy of ETNews, which reports that Samsung's Galaxy Alpha will be unveiled on 13 August. Currently, there are no details available about the hardware specifications of the new Galaxy Alpha except that it will have metal build.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is said to vie against Apple's next generation iPhone, which is likely to see a market rollout in September.

The report further suggests the Galaxy Alpha will arrive after the traditional launch of Galaxy S series flagship in the first half of the year and before the Galaxy Note in the second half of the year.

Although Galaxy Alpha will be launched as a flagship device, it might not be a part of Samsung's strategy and would come with limited offers like the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, explains Sammobile.

The LTE-A variant of Galaxy S5 is the first smartphone to feature download speeds up to 225 Mbps. It sports a QHD screen with resolutions at 2560 x 1440 pixels and pixel density at 577 ppi against the full HD screen of the standard variant.

Besides, it is the first to be powered by Snapdragon 805 chip featuring a Krait 450 processing unit clocked at 2.5GHz, paired with 3GB RAM. Unfortunately, the smartphone is exclusive to South Korea. Besides, Samsung has confirmed the company has no plan to release the LTE-A model globally.
