Samsung might out a whole new E-series of midrangers, as specs for SM-E700 and E500 pop up

First specs of the Samsung SM-E500, Galaxy E5, surface
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.
