Samsung today has announced the 2018 version of Galaxy A7 in South Korea. Samsung has been riding on the success with the past few releases and is looking to continue its streak. This phone marks the advent of Samsung’s first device which sports a triple camera setup. It also features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Features
The triple camera setup is the feature to look out for in this phone. The camera module consists of a 24 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture autofocus lens, an 8 MP shooter with 120-degree ultra-wide angle lens and a 5MP (f/2.2 aperture) depth-sensing camera.
