It was widely thought that the Galaxy Note 4 was Samsung's last hurrah in 2014 and would be the company's last attempt at winning back customers and fighting the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Note 4 will be rolling out around the world over the next few weeks, but it may not be the final big roll out of the year from Samsung. The company has a whole new series of handsets on the way in fact and this being Samsung, multiple devices from that range could land before the close of 2014.

The Koran giant is expanding an entire new range around its Galaxy Alpha smartphone and it is thought these devices will be known as the Galaxy A's. The Galaxy A series has been rumoured since the launch of the Alpha, but this week regular Samsung tipster, SamMobile, explained why Samsung is adding to its already dizzying array of handsets. The company is backing these handsets to be a driving force in emerging markets while also providing a fresh new take on the mid-range handset in established regions.

Samsung will price these handsets below the current Galaxy S range that is considered Samsung's core flagship smartphone series. Tentative names for these new smartphones are the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7. Some of the features of the Galaxy A7 have now leaked online through an import tracking website called Zauba that is handling units that are going to be tested and evaluated in India. The listing shows a Samsung device with the codename SM-A700 (A7) and a 5.5-inch display that SamMobile had earlier said would be HD. The listing also shows that the A7 will sport Dual SIM support.

The device is expected to arrive with others from the range in November and is reported to cost between $400 and $500.
