Samsung prepares two new mid-range smartphones
It’s as if we haven’t heard of Samsung for ages but the Korean company is back again with two new mid-range and budget-oriented smartphones called Galaxy E7 (codename SM-E700F) and Galaxy E5 (codename SM-E500F). Given the tech specs that we will describe in mere seconds and the expected low price the Galaxy E7 and E5 might become very popular devices in the near future but we can only say that for sure after we see the smartphones on the market.
The new Galaxy E7 brings everything you may need from the smartphone world – the device is based on a 28 nm 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (MSM8916) with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 306 graphics. The rest of the specs include a 5.5-inch sensor Super AMOLED display at 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, two cameras – one rear at 13 MP and one front at 5 MP – and a 2950 mAh battery. The Galaxy E7 measures 151 x 77 x 7.2 mm but we do not have information on how much it weighs.
The Galaxy E5 is a slim and light device at just 6.9 mm of thickness and weighs just 140 grams. It packs a 5-inch sensor Super AMOLED display at 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, one rear camera at 8 MP and one front camera at 5 MP and a 2300 mAh battery.
Impressive, isn’t it? The only downside (at least for some people) is that reportedly both models will come with non-removable batteries but this is to be confirmed. We do not have information on how much these two will cost too but the fact that they both run the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system and that they will not cost that much may turn them into new smartphone gems on the market.
