Speaking about the Samsung’s A-series flagship, the Galaxy A7 packs a 5.5-inch Full HD display, powered by the same SoC as the Galaxy Note 4 versions, expected to go with the Exynos 5433 chipset. The phablet has similar dimensions as the Note 4, but its gonna be an affordable alternative to the latest Samsung’s phablet top list.
Other specs on the Samsung Galaxy A7 features a 13-megapixel primary camera, alongside a selfie-cam with a 5MP sensor. Apart from the 4G LTE, the phablet also got WiFi, Bluetooth and an IR blaster on board as connectivity options, and more off it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Unfortunately the Galaxy A7 price and release date aren’t mentioned as yet.
About Samsung Galaxy E5 – it comes with a 3G dual-SIM flavor and supports 4G LTE on the other hand. Packs a 5-inch 1080p screen and a bit heavier than the last years Galaxy S4 handset. Powered by an unknown quad-core 1.9GHz processor and is listed as running Android 4.1, which is most likely another typo. Sports an 8MP camera on the back and a 2MP selfie camera. Other than the optional dual-SIM, there’s Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0.
Yet another Samsung’s budget Android phone is also on its way, called it the Samsung Galaxy J1 – offers a 4.3-inch WVGA display and packs a Spreadtrum SC6815 chipset with quad Cortex-A7 CPU (1.2GHz) and Mali-400 GPU. Paired with 1GB of RAM and includes only 4GB of internal storage.
