The Samsung Galaxy A7 is a higher midrange Android smartphone produced by Samsung Electronics as part of the Samsung Galaxy A series. It was announced on 20 September 2018 as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy A7.

The A7 2018 is the first triple camera smartphone produced by Samsung, featuring 3 different cameras on the rear. It features a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with curved edges similar to the Samsung Galaxy A8 2018, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the power button and Dolby Atmos immersive sound technology.


1. Specifications

The A7 2018 features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The display features curved edges, similar to the S9s infinity display, but with larger bezels and no curved display.

The triple camera setup features a primary 24MP f/1.7 sensor for normal photography, an ultra-wide 8MP f/2.4 sensor with a 120 degrees viewing angle, and a 5MP depth sensor for effects such as Bokeh. The rear cameras now feature an intelligent Scene Optimizer that include 19 different lighting modes for different scenes. The front camera has been upgraded to a 24MP sensor, complete with its own dedicated flash. The fingerprint sensor has been shifted from the back and integrated into the side-mounted power button, a first for a Samsung smartphone.

It runs Android 8.0 "Oreo" with Samsung Experience 9.0 respectively out-of-the box. The smartphone features an upgraded Exynos 7885 SoC consisting of 2 performance ARM Cortex-A73 and 6 efficient ARM Cortex-A53 backed by a new Mali-G71 MP2 GPU and sports 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB/128 GB of internal storage, expandable to 512 GB via a MicroSD card slot, through a dedicated SD card slot. The device retains a non-removable battery like its predecessor, but at a lower rating of 3300mAh, and eliminates Fast-Charging capability. It features a typical MicroUSB connector, rather than its predecessors newer USB-C connector.

Its extra features include Bixby Home, with no Bixby voice support or Bixby button, Always on Display and a Gorilla Glass front panel with a reflective glass back panel. It is available in black, blue, gold and pink variants, with some models supporting dual-sim. Unlike its predecessor, it does away with IP68 water and dust resistance.
