Specs of Samsung Galaxy E5 and E7 leak, looking similar to the Galaxy A series
SamMobile, a reputable Samsung news source, published the purported spec sheets of two unannounced, upcoming smartphones - the Samsung Galaxy E5 (SM-E500F) and E7 (SM-E700F). They appear to be mid-range big-screen smartphones, possibly modeled after Samsung's new design language established with the Galaxy A series.

The Samsung Galaxy E7 will, reportedly, have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 720p screen, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front-facing cam, 16GB of expandable internal storage space, and a 2,950mAh battery. Its dimensions are reported at a reasonable 5.94 x 3.03 x 0.28in (151×77×7.2 mm), and the operating system is Android 5.0 Lollipop topped off with the latest Samsung TouchWiz UI.

As for the Galaxy E5, it downsizes the display diagonal to 5 inches, and the battery comes down to 2300mAh, but the rest of the setup is the same - Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The E5 is the thinner smartphone at 0.27in (6.9mm) and weighs 4.93oz (140g).

There is nothing official in regards to the Galaxy E5 and E7 at this point, but the two models - with the possible addition of the Galaxy E3 - could be announced in the first or second quarter of 2015. If these specs are anything to judge by, Samsung is really going after Xiaomi's excellent low-end competition in China.

Way too many phones, the consumer is lost. I don't think any company really needs to produce more than 6 to 10 phones a year...

I agree, but I think Samung is releasing these E and A series phones to help reduce the amount of phones they make by introducing these new series to take over Samsung's lower and mid range market.

They gotta make some hard choices still. Not this way. Like what "A" for metal and "E" for plastic? That's fine if they're killing off Mega, Grand and Core series but guess what are the similarity between Mega 2, Grand 3 and Core Prime = all are Snapdragon 410 devices just diff screen sizes and separated in 3 series. See their lining up problem now?

You cant put TouchWiz on hardware. Its a software layer. And yes my sarcasm detector is working ;-)

I get that people are saying they are producing too many phones and yes I agree but rumor has it Samsung is discontinuing 2/3 of their phones and will have 2 - 3 phones in each price range which I think are these...

I like the title, looking similar to other Galaxies, lol. They are all the same except for a number on the box, absolutely identical to every other before it so yeah, similar made me chuckle.

They are not 100% identical. Even though the Alpha for example, looks like the Galaxy Note 4; they are not 100% identical.

Ok yes that's a large leap, but largely identical. Too much so, not enough difference ever to warrant a visible attempt has been made. I can't tell them apart at all, one S5 to the next, maybe a Note from a S4 or S5 if they're sitting next to each other. Kind of like Ford in the 90s, you could buy any model, but it'd still look like a rebagded Taurus. Good grief. SS used to make 3d cube shaped home buttons and not be scared to move volume and power key locations around, now though, not so much. To me, they haven't shaken so much as a finger since hyper glaze became a known finish on their lines.

Did you notice 2GB of RAM. Sweet.

I think 2 phones per 5 price range should be enough. One big phone and one small. Like Note and S series.

If they want to reduce the number of smartphones then they should do 3 per size should: one low end, one midrange and one high end.

What the f*** it is the same as A series!! They could have just stayed with E for low end A mid range S / Note for high end. Done! But nooooo, Samsung wants to be different in its own f***ed up way. -.- And not to release numerous devices at once, but one per year, like S / Note series. What a flop.

Samsung - Due to the recent drop in profits, we are considering downsizing out line of smartphones. But before we do, we are now adding 2 new Samsung Galaxy line of products. Please buy them.

I have n opinion of the A-Series. I have the Galaxy Note 4. It is an awesome phone. I purchased the Galaxy Alpha in gold for a XMAS present because I thought since it took on the look of my Note, it would be an awesome device. When I arrive I was so disappointed. First off the person I was buying for is a female, the device is small and light. However, it feels equally as cheap as the iPhone 5S. Even with the battery, it feels very light. But for $500 and only 32GB onboard and no microSD card support, it was terrible. For $500 it should be 1080P not 720. Now I saw the specs, but sometimes reading about a phone and actually getting it is 2 different things. So I bought the unlocked model which has no carrier bloat. I fored it up. The display looks gorgeous to be just 720P. In fact I would say its looks better than the Galaxy Note II which share similar display specs. But you can tell this display was made with newer components vs the Note 2. The phone is blazing fast with its Exynos OctaCore. But the design is not so great to me. I don't mind the plastic/metal combo as the Note 4 has that. But the Note 4 being bigger feels solid. The Alpha feels like I could break it with my bare hands. The back cover on the Galaxy series are always very thin. But this one is even thinner than the ones I am more familiar with, like the S3, 4 and 5. It's so thin, it feels like I can break it if I bend it. Even though I have no plans to buy an S model since me and the wife have the Note 4 which she gave up her S5 to get, I am still hoping the S6 is far better in design. I actually don't want the Note 4's look for the S6. That metal edge is ok, but it needs to have a more solid feel yet be light. That flimsy feeling that the Alpha has, feels like it is for like little girls; not a grown woman.
