The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) 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 (2017).

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[edit]

The A7 (2018) features a 6 inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The display features curved edges, similar to the S9's infinity display, but with larger bezels and no curved display.[2]

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.[3] The rear cameras now feature an intelligent Scene Optimizer that include 19 different lighting modes for different scenes.[4] 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.[5] 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 predecessor's 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.[4] Unlike its predecessor, it does away with IP68 water and dust resistance.

Availability[edit]

Following the unveiling, Samsung announced that the device will go on sale in selected European and Asian market from October 2018, with futures plans to release in other countries.[4]
