Also to contain against the iPhone 6, which is scheduled to be introduced in mid-September, the Galaxy Note 4 could be introduced early.”
The Galaxy Alpha will be released in 150 countries worldwide in order starting from early September. Its metal frame has an elegant curved surface design and strong endurance of external pressure.
