The Samsung Galaxy S III Alpha to Release In Japan


The Samsung Galaxy S III was announced in May and released in international markets later that month. In the short months it has been lurking around as a carrier option is has seemingly taken over the world. The Galaxy S III for American markets has been around since June and all markets together sold around 20 million units in just the first 100 days of release. But as we all know Samsung can’t sit still with the launch of new handsets. With one of the best handsets on the market Samsung cannot control themselves, pumping out Galaxy S III variants left and right.

Recently Samsung has taken the success of the Galaxy S III and rubbed it in dirt to make the Galaxy S III Mini…ok maybe that’s a bit harsh, but the under spec’ed GSIII variant is soon to be available and Samsung is still not done. From one extreme to another a Japanese based carrier NTT Docomo has announced a Samsung Galaxy S III Alpha. The new Galaxy S III Alpha unit was announced for NTT DoCoMo service provider and will be made available to its customer base in December. But what is in a name you ask? Well, a Galaxy Note if you must know! Have you ever dreamed of the internals of the Samsung Galaxy Note II being stuffed into a Galaxy S III? A quick trip to Japan will let your dreams come true. Think of it as a slimmed down Galaxy Note II but a beefed up Galaxy S III. The Galaxy S III Alpha is of course an improvement upon the original GSIII and will surely make any GSIII owner jealous. Internally instead of packing in a 1.4 GHz processor the new Alpha uses an Exynos Quad-Core CPU that clocks in at 1.6GHz and ups the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB. The rest of the device stays the same. The Galaxy S III Alpha also adds in a few user interface functions that are found on the Note II and take full advantage of its extra processing abilities. The Galaxy S III Alpha will come to Japanese customers in Titanium Grey and Sapphire Black.

Anyone jealous? Interested? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think of the new Galaxy S III Alpha! And as always folks, the very best in Samsung Galaxy S accessories are here.
