Samsung Electronics, on Thursday, launched the new Galaxy A7 smartphone in South Korea.
It’s the first handset in the company’s smartphone lineup to feature three rear cameras.
Yes, three cameras!
The rear triple camera setup is certainly the USP of the phone. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) features 8-megapixel 120° Ultra Wide Lens (f/2.4 aperture) making it the perfect device of its kind to capture wide-angle photos.
The company claims that the Galaxy A7 can capture photos “with the same viewing angle as the human eye.” Impressive, isn’t it?
In the triple camera setup, the Wide Lens is accompanied by a 24-megapixel autofocus sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 5-megapixel depth sensor with fixed focus and f/2.2 aperture.
In addition, the phone’s Live Focus feature lets you to control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect. The device can also capture crisp clear photos in both bright and low light conditions, according to Samsung.
The company also boasts of something called the intelligent Scene Optimizer that helps the Galaxy A7’s camera categorise your subject and adjusts the colour, contrast and brightness to instantly optimise image quality.
For selfie lovers, the phone offers a 24-megapixel front camera with adjustable LED flash.
Other specifications of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)
The new Samsung Galaxy A7 is a dual-SIM smartphone running on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box. It sports a large 6-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

When it comes to style, the Galaxy A7 offers a premium glass design and a side fingerprint sensor. The phone will be available in blue, black, gold and pink colour variants.
Price and availability
Samsung hasn’t announced the price of the Galaxy A7 (2018). However, it has stated that the phone will be available in select European and Asian markets from this fall. Other markets will get it “in the near future.”
The new Galaxy A7 will definitely be a head-turner once it’s released. But there’s something else that smartphone enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for Samsung to introduce – a phone with as many as four rear cameras.
The company itself announced on September 14 that it would add a new member to the Galaxy family on October 11. Since the Galaxy A7 (2018) press statement refers to the October event, it’s quite safe to presume that the anticipated handset could be from the Galaxy A family.
So, stay tuned!
