Elegant Design That Makes an Impression
Featuring a sleek metal bezel, the Galaxy Alpha has a slim, yet durable build. And the crisp 4.7" HD display provides richer colors, darker shadows and faster response times, giving you an incredible viewing experience.
Fast Action 12MP Camera with Pro Editing Tools
Capture every moment with the 12MP Ultra HD camera that gets more detail out of every occasion. And with the new Selective Focus feature, you can easily select elements to focus on—and the things you want to blur out—to create a feeling of depth.
Keep Track of Your Health
The Galaxy Alpha features a built-in heart rate monitor and, together with the S Health app, it makes tracking your health and fitness goals a lot easier. You can also use S Health to get on-demand nutritional information, while the built-in pedometer helps track your steps and calories burned.✝
No more worrying about or taking the time to enter your password. Now you can unlock your phone quickly and easily, just by scanning your fingerprint on the lock screen.
Low Battery? No Problem.
Ultra Power Saving Mode keeps you connected, even when your battery is critically low. It works by turning your screen to black and white and shuts off nonessential apps, so your device still works when you need it most.
