Samsung launches Galaxy A7 (2018) its first triple camera smartphone

Samsung has promised to reveal more at a Galaxy Event on October 11th, 2018 at 5PM in Malaysia (5AM ET).

The front-facing camera is a 24-megapixel snapper.

All of this camera tech will allow Galaxy A7 users to do some cool tricks, like adjusting bokeh effect strength as you take the photo.

The new Samsung Galaxy A7 features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with 2220 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. It's coming to select European and Asian markets this fall; the price has not been announced.

The cameras also categorise subjects and optimise color, contrast and brightness to best represent them. If all the leaks are correct, this will mark the first time when a mid-range phone will sport more than two cameras - setting the bar high for upcoming phones.

The front camera has an adjustable LED flash for custom control of selfies, as well as the Selfie Focus and Pro Lighting Mode features that make photos look professional. The fingerprint sensor on Galaxy J6+ is embedded in the power button on the right side, while Galaxy J4+ relies on face unlock for unlocking the device. We have yet to see any camera samples from Samsung's first attempt at three rear cameras, but I'm looking forward to see how it compares. The available colors are blue, black, gold and pink.

The smartphone is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery and runs Android 8.0 out of the box with Samsung Experience on top. The dimensions are 159.8 x 76.8 x 7.5 mm and it weighs 168 grams. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, VHT80, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC (optional), GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, and USB Type-B. The latest iteration of the Galaxy A7 apparently improves on the 2017 version of the device announced earlier a year ago.

Earlier this month, Samsung mobile boss DJ Koh said the company's mid-range phones will get cutting-edge features before its flagships going forward.
