After months of teasing, Samsung has just officially unveiled the new Galaxy Alpha smartphone. Samsung's latest handset is an ultra-thin Android-powered smartphone, featuring a 4.7-inch 1280x720 display.

On the back, we have a 12-megapixel camera, a smallish 1860mAh battery (depending on your region), and either a quad- or octa-core processor (again, depending on your region). The design of the Galaxy Alpha is what this is all about, with a new-look design, ditching the plastic we're all used to on Galaxy smartphones.

Samsung calls the Galaxy Alpha "the evolution of Galaxy Design," and that it shows off a "new design approach" for the South Korean-based giant. The shape of the Galaxy Alpha isn't much of a departure from the Galaxy S5, but we are seeing some more finness to the Galaxy Alpha. The company hasn't unveiled pricing or availability for the Galaxy Alpha, but it will launch in black, white, gold and blue colors.
