Badr-7 (technically Arabsat-6:cool: will be co-located with the rest of Arabsat's Badr constellation of Direct-To-Home satellites at its 26° E video ‘hot-spot’, extending in-orbit capacity for television services.

Also a Eurostar E3000 model, equipped with a payload featuring 36 active transponders in Ku-band, Arabsat-6B will have a spacecraft power of 10.5kW at the end of its 15-year design lifetime.

Due for launch 3th quarter 2015 what will be the coverage of Badr-7 ? will it be like Badr-5 & 6 or like Badr-4 we will have to wait & see as no coverage maps are available atm,

Badr-4 will probably move to a new location to start new services at one of Arabsat's new locations @ 34.5 east.

The new satellite, the first in ARABSAT’s 6th generation of satellites, will be co-located with ARABSAT satellites at the 26° East video hot spot known as BADR.
It will extend in-orbit ARABSAT’s capacity at this location for direct-to-home television broadcast and telecommunications services, and will provide broadband services in Ka-band with spot beam coverage.
BADR-7 is based on the Astrium built highly reliable Eurostar E3000 platform and is able to operate up to 24 transponders in Ku-band and 24 Ka spot-beams as well as 3 Ka transponders for additional services.
Four deployable antennas and three fixed antennas will address service regions over a large coverage that includes the whole of MENA, South and North-West Africa and Central Asia.
BADR-7 will weigh 6100 kg at launch and have a spacecraft power of 12 kW at the end of its more than 15-year design life. It is planned for launch in late 2015.

Looks like Badr-7 is a direct replacement for Badr-4 following in the footsteps of the pioneer satellite @ 26 east Badr-3
