We recently brought you info on the Samsung SM-E700F affordable phablet that was leaked on the Indian import tracking portal Zauba. When the device first leaked, there was very limited info about the specs as the Zauba portal did not mention anything else apart from the display size and the fact that it will come with dual-SIM support. Today SamMobile has posted detailed specs of the SM-E700F and the SM-E500F Galaxy smartphones. Both of these will reportedly be part of the Galaxy E-series line and are likely to be named the Galaxy E7 and Galaxy E5 respectively.
The Galaxy E7 (SM-E700F) is expected to be the most impressive member of the Galaxy E-series family. It will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with an Adreno 306 GPU and come with 2GB RAM. The SUPER AMOLED display is said to be of the same size as the Galaxy A7, but with 1280 x 720 HD resolution instead of 1920 x 1080 on the Galaxy A7. It will also have 16GB internal memory, 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, and a large 2950mAh capacity battery. The device is expected to be 7.2mm thin, with overall dimensions of 151 x 77 x 7.2mm.
The Galaxy E5 (SM-E500F) will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and come with the same 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. It is expected to arrive with a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, and a less impressive 2300mAh battery. But that smaller battery means it will be a little thinner than the E7 at just 6.9mm.
Both of them will apparently ship with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop version out of the box, with the usual Samsung TouchWiz UX running on top. Unfortunately no details on pricing and availability have been shared by SamMobile’s sources. But if we were to guess, these two devices will probably show up by Q1 next year at the earliest.
What do you think of the new Galaxy E-series? Are these specs good enough to take on the competition early next year?
