LONDON, 12th September: Samsung's newest smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is now available from Carphone Warehouse both online and in store from £33 per month* with no upfront cost. The UK's largest mobile retailer will be stocking the brand new handset in Charcoal Black, Sleek Silver, Dazzling White and exclusive Scuba Blue.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the first Samsung device to feature a beautifully designed metal frame. Its metal body is incredibly thin and lightweight, at 4.7" the Alpha's fully HD screen is slightly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5, meaning that it's compact enough to use one handed and but big enough to watch movies and videos or play games.

The handset also comes with the high tech features Samsung has become known for as standard, such as a fingerprint scanner to unlock your phone. It also supports PayPal allowing you to authorise payments securely with only your fingerprint. The device also comes with the built in S-Health app to help you keep track of your fitness, calories burned, your weight and heart rate.

Customers can get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in- store and online in Charcoal Black and Dazzling White from today. Customers who purchase the brand new smartphone online in Sleek Silver and exclusive Scuba Blue will have their handsets delivered by 3rd October.
