Samsung have officially unveiled its long-awaited smartphone with triple camera setup on the rear as the Galaxy A7 (2018). The device comes as the successor to last year’s Galaxy A7 (2017) and with interesting specifications and features. The triple camera on the rear is, however, the highlight feature of the device as this is the first time the South Korean giant will have such number of lens on a smartphone.
To start with the camera lenses, the combination of a primary 24MP regular lens with a F/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens (F/2.4 aperture), and lastly, a 5MP depth sensor with F/2.2 aperture. The depth sensor allows for Bokeh effect when you take photos, the ultra-wide angle lens comes with a 120° field of view (same as the human eye) for unrestricted wide-angle photos, while the main 24MP lens has a wide aperture to give the best shots in low light conditions.
On the front, the Galaxy A7 2018 doesn’t disappoint either as it is equipped with a 24MP shooter. The front-facing camera comes with an adjustable LED flash for bright and clear selfies. The Galaxy A7 (2018) software capabilities further allow users mimic professional studio lighting with “Pro Lighting Mode”. Other features of the front-facing camera include Selfie Focus for Bokeh effects, AR Emoji, Scene Optimizer, and a couple of interesting filters.
The A7 (2018) uses a 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display with 2,220 x 1,080 resolution (and 411 ppi) in 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The device is slim (7.5mm), lightweight (168 grams), has IP68 Waterproof and Dustproof certification and the display is duly protected by an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass.
Don’t be surprised if you haven’t / didn’t notice any fingerprint sensor on the rear or beneath the display, Samsung has repositioned it to the right-hand side of the device.
On the inside, an Octa-core chip with a clock speed of 2.20GHz powers the device and a non-removable 3,300mAh. Based on storage configuration, the Galaxy A7 (2018) will be available on two variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM or 6GB + 128GB ROM. Available colour options are Blue, Pink, Black, and Gold.
