In a bid to better its camera offering, Samsung offered a dual-aperture camera on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, the competition seems to have surged ahead with better cameras. For instance, Huawei offers the triple-camera setup on the Huawei P20. Now, Samsung has for the very first time introduced a triple camera setup and surprisingly it comes on a mid-range device rather than a flagship. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) comes with a triple rear camera setup and other features that make it a worthwhile offering. Let us dive deep in and take a look at some of the best features the Galaxy A7 (2018) has to offer.
The triple camera setup on the Galaxy A7 (2018) is made up of three sensors that are placed longitudinally. The setup consists of a 24-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture and an 8-megapixel ultra wide sensor with f/2.4 aperture and the third sensor is a 5-megapixel depth sensor with a fixed focus and f/2.2. The secondary/selfie camera on the Galaxy A7 (2018) is a 24-megapixel fixed focus sensor with LED flash and Pro Lighting mode.
Traditionally, smartphone manufacturers incorporate a fingerprint sensor at the front or the rear. Some companies like Vivo have been offering on-screen fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy A7 (2018) comes equipped with a side fingerprint sensor which is somewhat similar to the one we saw on Sony Xperia devices. Samsung has baked in the fingerprint sensor within the power button. The company claims that this should help the users locate fingerprint sensor in a much better way. All said and done it all boils down to personal preference, however, it is good to see Samsung trying out different variations for the user's benefit.
Samsung has left no stones unturned when iti comes to the display. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) comes fitted with a Super AMOLED 6-inch Infinity Display. The notch-less display offers a resolution of 1,080 x 2,220 pixels alongside an aspect ration of 18:5:9.
Samsung is known for sticking with age-old design philosophies. Lately, this has changed but not very much so in the budget and the mid-range segment. The Galaxy A7 (2018) comes with a clean front facade that remains untouched by fingerprint sensor or the home button. At the rear, the triple camera setup is very evident and once again thanks to the side fingerprint sensor, the rear looks seamless. Adding to the list is the glossy back that compliments the dash of bright colors like Blue and Pink. Overall the Galaxy A7 (2018) offers the premiumness that one would expect from it.
Apart from all the cosmetic offerings the Galaxy A7 (2018) does pretty well when it comes to hardware. At the heart of the phone is a 2.2GHz octa-core processor that can be had with a 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage options include 64GB and 128GB.
Samsung’s latest mid-ranger comes with a compelling choice of a battery pack. The Galaxy A7 (2018) features a 3,300mAh battery and supports Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging technology. As far as the pricing goes, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) will retail at €349 (~ Rs 29,400). At this point in time, Samsung is yet to announce the phone in India and reveal the Indian pricing.
