We still have a month or so before Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 will be available on U.S. wireless carrier networks, but the new Galaxy Alpha will launch this week for customers that don’t won’t a big ‘ol phablet to carry around.
AT&T just announced this morning that the Galaxy Alpha will be available to purchase starting this Friday (September 26). The smartphone will cost $612.99 without a contract, or $199.99 with a new, two-year contract. You can also choose from the NEXT 18 installment plan ($25.55/month) or the NEXT 12 installment plan ($30.65/month).
AT&T says that it will also give new customers (or existing customers that add a new line) a $100 statement credit with the purchase of a new smartphone on NEXT.
The Galaxy Alpha comes with a 4.7” 720p display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, and 32GB of internal storage (unfortunately, there is no microSD slot for added expansion). Other features include an 1860 mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, 12MP rear-facing and 2.1MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 802.11ac wireless, and NFC support.
