Galaxy A7 (2018): Samsung’s first triple rear camera smartphone

Samsung Galaxy A7 2018

Are three eyes better than two? Samsung seems to think so. The world’s number one smartphone maker has just announced the Galaxy A7, the latest addition to the premium mid-range Galaxy A series family. The Galaxy A7 features a triple rear camera system, the first-ever in Samsung’s stable of devices.

A triple camera system is no longer unusual of course, with Huawei’s flagship P20 Pro paving the way earlier in the year. Nonetheless, the Galaxy A7’s new optic trio promises to capture stunning photos, no matter what life throws at you.

The powerful triple camera setup consists of an 8MP f/2.4 120-degree ultra-wide lens, a 24MP f/1.7 + 5MP f/2.2 depth lens. The ultra-wide lens has supposedly the same viewing angle as the human eye.

Expectedly, the 24MP + 5MP combination works in tandem to offer Live Focus, Samsung’s depth of field mode that lets you adjust bokeh effect of shots.

The 24MP lens is also capable of combining four pixels into one “super pixel” in low light conditions for better exposed photos.

As seen on the Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy S9 series, the Galaxy A7 also boasts the intelligent Scene Optimizer. The camera intelligently and automatically categorises subjects and adjusts colour, contrasts and brightness to optimise image quality.

On the front, the device gets a massive 24MP front camera with adjustable LED flash. It also supports Selfie Focus, and on-trend with other competitor makes, also offers studio portrait lighting, a feature called “Pro Lighting Mode.”

The Galaxy A7 features a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display and offers Dolby Atmos sound technology.

The device is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor with 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It packs a 3,300mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.
