Leaked images posted earlier this week turned out to be the real deal, with a smart handset shown in four colours: black, blue, pink and gold. Do stay tuned to TechNave.com as we'll be there on hand at the aforementioned Samsung Malaysia 4x Fun event to see if it could indeed be the triple rear camera Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018). The Galaxy A7 (2018) also comes with Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health, along with Dolby Atmos support. But the Galaxy A7 does show that Samsung's DJ Koh meant it when he said a few days ago that Samsung would bring novel features to mid-range phones for a change.
The main difference is obviously the rear camera. According to the specifications, the device features an octa-core processor running at 2.20GHz, but Samsung has not officially announced which SoC is actually present in the phone. A microSD card slot can expand that by up to 512GB.
In line with the inclusion of this new model, Samsung also opens pre-orders limited to this version between September 21 and September 23, 2018.
The 24MP selfie camera up front comes with adjustable LED flash, selfie focus for portrait selfies, Pro Lighting Mode, and AR emojis.
Samsung says that the Galaxy A7 will be available in select European and Asian markets this fall and that it will be coming to other markets in the future.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC. The phone comes with glass on the back and a side fingerprint sensor much like the Galaxy J6+. The phone measures 7.5mm in thickness and weighs 168 grams.
The smartphone is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery and runs Android 8.0 out of the box with Samsung Experience on top. To be honest, the Galaxy A7 (2018) doesn't come anywhere close to what Huawei P20 Pro offered us.
