It’s actually expected but we thought Samsung would come out with one later on its flagship device but it happened to be that the Korean tech giant Samsung just showed off its first triple camera sporting smartphone with the new Galaxy A7 (2018).
The major highlight on the new device is no other than the 3-sensor main camera’s on the back. The main camera module includes a primary 24 Megapixel sensor with a bright f/1.7 Aperture lens with an 8 Megapixel sensor having a f/2.4 Aperture wide-angle lens and a 5 Megapixel Depth sensor with f/2.2 Aperture lens. The cameras from this module works together to give the best imaging experience with DSLR-like effects, better low-light quality shots and even wider coverage of subject and its surroundings. Completing the imaging package is a 24 Megapixel front-facing camera that features an f/2.0 Aperture lens.
The new Galaxy A7 device is built on metal frame sandwiched by a curved-glass sheet from both the front and back giving a premium feel to it. The display is a 6.0-inch super AMOLED panel with a 1080 x 2220 pixel resolutions and there’s no notch which is grateful to see given how overused it is on some other manufacturers.
While the Galaxy A series does come with both standard and premium features but unfortunately this line of devices isn’t Samsung’s flagship and we can only hope that it could include that best hardware available around. With that aside, the new Galaxy A7 (2018) handset is powered by a 2.2GHz unnamed CPU with an 8 core processor most possibly baked in-house and comes with either of these RAM/Storage configurations: 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB, then there’s a top-end 6GB RAM variant with 128GB storage with all of which does include a memory expansion slot for up to 512GB microSD cards.
Users will find that the Galaxy A7 (2018) now comes with a clean and minimalist approach on the back with an obviously missing piece. That’s right, the fingerprint sensor has moved somewhere else but not like in-display as it is a rumored feature that may come on future Samsung flagship but into the side of the handset more specifically on the right side of the frame.
Water and dust protection is also present as its 2017 model and other features like high-speed Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and GPS with A-GPS support are included as standard. What’s drawing it back though with the times is a microUSB port, though it is still much effective today but Samsung could have included a USB-C on that, it doesn’t take a sweat to do that by the way.
With the new Galaxy A7 (2018), everything runs on a 3,300 mAh embedded battery and is driven by Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung Experience UI on top.
The new handset will launch initially in Asia and Europe and will be introduced on the rest of the world towards the end of the year. Samsung initially revealed the price for the Galaxy A7 (2018) starting at $410 and will be available in these color options: Black, Blue, Gold, Pink.
