With Samsung enduring seriously tough times, we appreciated the suggestion that the Galaxy Alpha would be cancelled, and significant weight thrown instead behind the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and the soon-to-be-announced Galaxy A7. Nice. Simple. Groovy.
But wait, what’s this? Two kinda sorta mostly mid-range phones called the Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7. Eh?
In a nutshell, the spanking new Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 are quite similar to the existing Galaxy A phones, but it’ll probably take a feature-length article (perhaps with a table, mmm!) to really drill down and compare the five (one of which – again – hasn’t actually been announced).
Instead, here, we’ll focus on the spec sheets for the new guys, the Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 (I’m already confusing them with the A5 and A7, gah!).
As global smartphone tradition dictates, the Samsung Galaxy E5 is the more modest of the duo (higher number generally means better phone).
Samsung Galaxy E5 specs include a 5in 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front “selfie” camera, and 2,400mAh battery.
Galaxy E7 specs, meanwhile, include a 5.5in 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front “selfie” camera, and 2,950mAh battery.
Both the Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 have aluminium unibodies, and run Android KitKat 4.4 with software features including Ultra Power Saving Mode and Private Mode.
Confused? The Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 are seemingly destined for India primarily, so don’t worry about memorising those spec sheets - and the differences between the A series and E series - just yet.
