Samsung bets on smartphone rear cameras

22 September 2018

Samsung Electronics on Thursday announced the launch of its first smartphone with a triple camera setup, the Galaxy A7, in South Korea. A triple camera feature is a premium feature that goes well with Samsung's either "Note" or "S" line of phones, however, Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 is here and you will be pleasantly surprised what the phone has to offer.

The 24MP lens helps users take pictures in all lighting conditions, day or night, by allowing more light in by "combining four pixels into one pixel in low light conditions", notes the company. The last is an Ultra-Wide lens for 8mpx wide-angle and aperture f / 2.4, in order to capture photos with a field of view of 120 degrees, similar to those present on LG devices.

The A7 has a 24 megapixel front camera and adjustable LED flash, and has filters and AR emojis that can be added. The Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 has been announced by the Korean tech giant today, with other points of interest being a Super AMOLED Infinity Display, a 24MP selfie camera, Dolby Atmos sound and side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

What's also immediately clear is that the Galaxy A7 doesn't have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

Bruce Bennett, of the RAND Corporation in California, said Moon's strategy could put Seoul at odds with the United States.

The Super AMOLED screen is 6 inches, with a 2,220 x 1,080 resolution, while a Exynos 7885 processor with 4GB or 6GB RAM can be found under the hood. The device will be available in select European and Asian markets beginning in the fall, with Samsung planning to release the handset to other markets in the near future. The phone will be officially launched at an event to be held in Malaysia next month i.e. October 11, where we'll get to details regarding the pricing and availability. The Galaxy A7 will appeal to consumers in Asia who don't have a huge budget but want a phone with excellent camera capabilities.

The Galaxy A7 also features Bixby, Samsung Pay, NFC support, and Samsung Health. Samsung has already said it will bring new features to mid-range phones first, before they appear on flagships.

The dual SIM based smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the company's own Samsung Experience on top and is fueled by a 3300mAh battery with adaptive fast charging. The price has not been fixed yet, but it is expected to be around W500,000 (US$1=W1,122).
