Samsung Galaxy Alpha Limited Edition to be available with leather backs

Earlier this year, in September, Samsung launched its first metal phone. It is considered by reviewers to be one of the most – if not the most – aesthetically pleasing phone from Samsung. It packs some of the premium features of the S5 into a smaller frame, and you’d be tempted to think of it as a Galaxy S5 mini.

The phone is a competitor to the iPhone 6, features a 1280 by 720 AMOLED display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801, 2GB of RAM, no expandable storage, a more than acceptable rear camera, and mediocre battery life. It is supposed to be part of a new design direction for future Samsung phones. Check out our full review here.

In a collaboration between the tech giant, fashion label Free Lance, and artist JB Rautureau, a special edition version will be made with four custom-made leather back covers. They will be limited to 100 of each color, and will feature a certificate of authenticity.

Have a look at the promotional video below. Maybe it makes sense for a holiday gift, if you’re willing to pay a premium for it : 649 Euros ($795). However, this is a truly limited edition, only available in France.
