Galaxy Alpha gets sized up against the iPhone 5s in latest leak

Another day, another Galaxy Alpha leak. While yesterday's leak provided us with a clearer look at the metallic frame abutting the sides of the device, today's leaked images pit Samsung's upcoming handset against the iPhone 5s.

The images, which were uploaded on Twitter by a new account called @culeaks, showcase the speaker grill located at the bottom of the device in addition to the metallic frame that goes around the sides. The side by side comparison with the iPhone 5s shows that the Galaxy Alpha is thinner than Apple's offering, which is 7.6 mm thick.

Excluding the metal frame, it looks like the Galaxy Alpha will feature a similar design as that of Samsung's current product offerings, with an image highlighting a textured back akin to that of the Galaxy S5. There is no official confirmation as to when the Galaxy Alpha will be unveiled, although the latest rumors suggest an August 13 launch.
