Leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, (also known as the S5 Prime) have surfaced showing what looks like a Galaxy S5, but with less-rounded edges and a metal chassis rather than plastic.
The Galaxy Alpha is rumoured to have a 2560 x 1440 display, 3GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 805 processor and is expected to be launched in August, although rumours suggest that Samsung may wait until IFA in September to make the announcement.
Tech site Android Central reported that the camera pod and heart rate sensor are both featured in the same style as the S5, but in a slightly different configuration and LTE-Advanced branding is found on the back plate, indicating that this is likely a South Korean model.
However, according to a different site, Techradar, Samsung is reportedly turning to China to create the Alpha's metal cases as most of Taiwan's metal case manufacturers are monopolised by Apple, and because there aren't any in Korea.
Chinese metal manufacturers cannot produce more than 1 million cases per month, so supply will be slow, meaning that the Alpha could well be limited at launch, the site said.
Other rumours suggest that Samsung will only be releasing the Alpha handset in Korea to begin with.
