FCC filing reveals height & width (but not depth) of Samsung Galaxy Alpha


A few days after we saw new photos of the upcoming metal-bodied Samsung Galaxy Alpha in white, an FCC filing spotted by phoneArena reveals the height and width.

Listed only by its FCC ID of A3LSMG850F, the dimensions fit earlier rumors that the handset would be smaller than the Galaxy S5, with a 4.8-inch 720p display in place of the S5’s 5.1-inch 1080p screen. The dimensions are shown as 133x67mm, around a centimetre shorter and about half a centimetre narrower than the S5 … 

The exact model shown isn’t a U.S. spec handset, but it is expected to be released here on both AT&T and T-Mobile.

The Alpha was first rumored in mid-July, and we saw the first photo of the handset later that month. It appears that the handset is mid-range rather than the premium version of the S5 that some had predicted. PhoneArena suggests that the spec will be an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, 2GB of RAM, have a 12 MP camera and a heart-rate monitor.

The German site All About Samsung has suggested that Samsung may launch the Alpha on 13th August.
