Samsung Announces The Galaxy A7 – Features A Triple Camera Setup, 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM & More

We definitely had a ton of expectations from Samsung last week. Ever since they teased the arrival of a new device following the launch of the Note 9, I was curious what Samsung had in store for their next launch, turns out, it’s the A7.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 has to be one of the most intriguing phones we’ve seen from Samsung so far this year, despite their flagships launches. The Samsung Galaxy A7, as the name suggests, would be among the mid-rangers from Samsung and would serve the mid-range market with a few surprises.

Recently, Samsung has uncovered the Samsung Galaxy A7 and it packs three polarizing cameras on its back. In addition to that, the Samsung Galaxy A7 comes with Samsung’s classy expansion options that they’ve been holding on to for quite a while. The Samsung Galaxy A7 comes with a MicroSD card slot and your handy dandy headphone jack for those loyalists out there.

On the inside, as most budget releases from Samsung, Samsung’s acting vague with what SoC is packed into the A7 2018. However, the spec sheet seems to be pretty cheesy overall. Inside the phone, you’re getting an octa-core 2.2Ghz SoC, up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.

Aside from that, since Samsung Pay has been a huge concern for Samsung to expand its business, like its elder brothers, the Galaxy A7 comes with Samsung Pay support with the help of NFC.

At the back of the device, we’re looking at a camera setup that resembles that of the Huawei P20 Pro. Not only does the A7 (2018) pack three cameras behind it, but it seems like Samsung has a ton of cooking to do.

Here’s a comparison of the Samsung Galaxy A7 and the Galaxy A8 Plus detailing the differences between both of the phones on paper.

As you could note, the Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus still has a number of advantages despite being placed above the A8. However, this launch seems more like a stepping stone for Samsung than it is about innovation before they announced the S10 next year.

Samsung is expected to reveal even more information regarding the device on October the 11th, 2018.
