After the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge, the new high-end range of Samsung smartphones would be the Galaxy Alpha successors. It is a known fact that Samsung will be not following he Galaxy S series any more and will start with a new series. So there would not be any Galaxy S6 next year, most probably.
However, talking about the new Galaxy Alpha successor, there are so far, three models which have been leaked in the recent past. These are the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A7. All these devices have been leaked and rumored heavily in the recent past
Now Samsung's own website has confirmed one of the devices. It has in fact, mentioned the A7 out there. This leaves us with a conclusive belief that the device will soon launch.
Although, Samsung has not formally spoken about any of these devices until now, rumors and leaks suggest that the Galaxy A7 would come with a pretty decent high-end specs.
The Galaxy A7 is expected to launch with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 pixels display offering a pixel density of 401 ppi. It will be most likely powered by 1.5GHz chipset based on ARMv8-A architecture, meaning that we're looking at a 64-bit processor (probably Snapdragon 410). It should come with Android KitKat out-of-the-box and expect an update to Android L 5.0 as well. This particular device is the largest in the A series so far.
However, since, Samsung has not confirmed the device or its specs formally at the moment, you can expect a bit of change in the specs at the time of the launch.
