We had heard last year that Samsung was working on a new smartphone series that would be unveiled soon. The news came a few weeks after Samsung has unveiled its Galaxy A series. It has now announced the Galaxy E5 and E7 which at first glance appear to be younger siblings of the A series. Rumor has it that Samsung will substitute the Galaxy Alpha with relatively cheaper models like these.

These are the first models of Samsung’s new Galaxy E series. The Galaxy E5 has a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz quadcore processor with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. There’s support for microSD card. The smartphone also has an 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera and a 2,400mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy E7 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display, 1.2GHz quadcore processor with 2GB RAM, 13 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera topped off with a 2,950mAh battery. Both have Hybrid dual-SIM card support, are powered by Android 4.4 KitKat and come in at just 7.3mm thick.

The company is launching both smartphones in India first. It is possible that the E Series might make its way to other emerging markets as well. There’s no confirmation as yet if the Galaxy E5 and E7 are destined for North America.
