Samsung might out a whole new E-series of midrangers, as specs for SM-E700 and E500 pop up
Samsung vowed to stop diluting its brand with tens of hard to distinguish handsets each year, but it doesn't seem to start doing it soon, if the latest leaks about upcoming low-ends are any indication. After releasing three Galaxy Alpha or A-series, and a fourth on the way, now it seems we will see a new E-series, with tentative Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 titles, since specs for a Samsung SM-E700 have been unearthed, shortly after the SM-E500 ones.

Samsung SM-E700 will apparently have a 720p HD display resolution, like the E5, and will be powered by a chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, while the SM-E500 will tick at 1.2 GHz. We previously came across the E700 on the Zauba import database, where it was listed with a 5.5" display, unlike the eventual 5-incher on the SM-E500. 

In any case, these specs for the two handsets point to lower midrange level big-screen phones by Samsung, but we are more interested in the final design, as an eventual new series would warrant an overhaul in the looks department, too, like Samsung did with the Galaxy A-series with great success.

Please price them correctly. Mid-range Samsung phones are pricey for what you get.

Pricey for what you get is right. $100 or more for trash. You can get a Moto G for what you pay for a Galaxy Ace. Moto wins that fight, hands down...

Stop bearing too many devices, Sammy! Remember what you did in 2012.

How many smartphones samsung have in their portfolio...500? And then they wonder why sales of their phones are is confusing people with so many similar options to chose from...and not to forget horrendous design of their phones.

Phone consumers are smarter. Therefore, Samsung is going to decline

id like to see samsung as follows: - first quarter of the year: Galaxy series, one low end and one mid range - middle of the year a phablet that is atleast 6 inches with mid range specs - last quarter of the year: Note series, one low end (an upgrade from previous low end) and one mid range (an upgrade from previous mid range) - Galaxy and Note series atleast 3gb ram and 32/64 internal storage, w/ best resolution - low end series only 1gb ram and 8/16 internal storage, only 720P - mid range and phablet (6+ inches) only 2gb ram and 16/32 internal storage, 720P or better - low end and mid range should have a standard 5 inch screen - phablet series that is atleast 6 inches - their premium /flagship devices should start at 5.5 inches (mini versions at 4.5 or 5 inches) - if there is a mini series, it has to follow their flagship devices (Galaxy or Note series) and must have the same specs and designs and features all around with a screen that is atleast 1/2 inch to an inch smaller
