Upcoming Samsung Phones 2014: The Fastest Samsung Handset On The Planet

For the past couple of weeks, we have seen one of the upcoming Samsung phones for 2014, and it certainly looks like the Korean tech giant wants to directly aim at the upcoming 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6. 
According to several leaked images and reports, the Galaxy Alpha, Samsung's answer to the smaller iPhone 6, will be the manufacturer's first smartphone to actualy get a metal frame. 

While it is not the news we wanted - we certainly would have wanted a metal case from front to back - it is still considered a huge leap for Samsung who have always settled for polycarbonate plastic in its flagships.
The interesting thing to point out here is that aside from the rumored chipset, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is actually a high midranger. 

The upcoming Android smartphone gets a 4.7-inch display with only HD (1280 x 720) resolution, compared to the QHD (2560 x 1440) display of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for Korea, and the Galaxy Note 4. 
Other  specs of the Galaxy Alpha include a 12 or 13MP primary camera, possibly with OIS, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory without microSD card expansion, eerily similar to that of the iPhone. 
However, what most reports and consumers are waiting for is the Exynos chip that will come with the device. There are some rumors which claim that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha would get the company's latest Exynos 5433 chipset, which in a previous benchmark trumped the latest Qualcomm chip, none other than the Snapdragon 805. 
If the Exynos chip outperformed the Snapdragon 805 in a smartphone that has a QHD display, then theorethically, it should be leaps and bounds faster in just an HD screen. 
Is Samsung finally launching a no-compromise handset just to match Apple's iPhone 6? That's still uncertain right now, though if the rumors do pan out to be true, then we could see one of the closest mactchups between Apple and Samsung in recent years.
