AMD's newly launched Radeon RX 5700 Series of graphics cards are squarely aimed at the mid-range segment of the gaming market, and they offer solid performance and attractive price points. However, it appears that AMD will soon have a range of cards that will slot further down on the totem pole to satisfy the entry-level market.
Verification of these lesser 7nm graphics cards from noted leaker Komachi, which was first noticed by WCCFTech. The Radeon graphics cards were found in CompuBench, and have the ID String "AMD 7340:C1". What's interesting is that the cards present themselves as Navi 14 with a total of 24 RDNA compute units.
With a total of 64 stream processors per compute unit, we're looking at a total of 1536 stream processors compared to 2304 for the standard Radeon RX 5700 and 2560 for the Radeon RX 5700 XT. Komachi also points out a GPU clock of 1.9GHz and 4GB of VRAM.

GFX ID = GFX 1012 (Navi 14).
CL_DEVICE_MAX_COMPUTE_UNITS : 12. (24).
*(CompuBench displays half of the actual CU number (RDNA GPU Only).)
While we have an idea of what specs these Navi 14 cards will have, what about naming? Well, back in late June, Sapphire filed trademarks for a slew of Radeon RX product names including cards in the 5600, 5700, 5800, and 5900 Series. It seems most logical that these new budget Navi 14 cards would be designated the Radeon RX 5600 Series.
If that's indeed the case, it's seems likely that these new cards will be doing battle against NVIDIA's Turing-based GeForce GTX cards, which consist of the GeForce GTX 1650, GeForce GTX 1660, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
At this time, we don't have any indication on when AMD plans to release the new entry-level graphics cards.
