It looks like Samsung's all-metallic Galaxy Alpha may not launch on August 4 as previously assumed, as the latest rumor from AllAboutSamsung suggests that the device is slated for a launch on August 13, three weeks before IFA.

The mid-range handset is said to feature a 4.7-inch 720p screen, an octa-core processor, most likely the Exynos 5 Octa 5433, which has four Cortex A15 cores and four Cortex A7 cores. Other rumored specs include 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory and a 12 MP camera along with a 2.1 MP front shooter. Interestingly, it looks like Samsung will offer a nano-SIM slot with the Galaxy Alpha, according to the leaked image of the device.
