Samsung has shown off a metal edged phone that looks a lot like Apple's iPhone, in a move that wont do much to quell complaints that Samsung copies Apple designs.

The latest addition to Samsung's Galaxy smartphone line is known as the Galaxy Alpha.

"The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on the specific desires of the consumer market," said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics.

At less than 7 mm thick, the Galaxy Alpha is also one of the slimmest Galaxy devices ever, and the company said that its uniquely compact construction and light weight provides consumers with maximum in-hand grip and control.

The device is equipped with a 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display as well as an advanced camera and real time HDR.

The Galaxy Alpha will be available at the beginning of September.
