New Samsung Galaxy A7 2018, characteristics, price and technical sheet

23 mayo, 2021

After some other leak, Samsung has been encouraged to present its renewed Samsung Galaxy A7, to which he does not put a number but in order not to confuse it with the variants of another year, we will generally refer to it as the Galaxy A7 2018.

It turns out that the Galaxy A8 + did not replace the Galaxy A7, but the Galaxy A7 returned one more year and with several interesting news: it is the first of the house with a rear camera with three lenses And, like the Galaxy J6 +, it includes the fingerprint reader on the side.

Three lenses better than one


As we anticipated, the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 tries to attract attention by being the first Samsung to mount three lenses on its back. This is really the star point of the terminal, which combines a 24 MP lens with f1.7 aperture, another 8MP wide-angle lens with f2.4 aperture and a third 5 MP lens with 120 degrees of angle and f2.2 aperture.

According to Samsung, the 120 degree lens is the same angle of view as the human eye, so the result is photos exactly the same as what you see in reality. We will have to wait to test it ourselves to see what the result is.

The other two lenses are responsible for the adjustable blur effect (i.e. the famous bokeh). The 24 MP main lens takes care of the heavy lifting, combining four pixels into one for good photos even in low light. Of course, the whole set is enhanced by artificial intelligence, here personified in the smart scene selector.

The fingerprint sensor, on the side


Samsung surprised us in the Galaxy J6 + with the fingerprint reader on the side, and in the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 the play is repeated almost to the millimeter. The fingerprint sensor is located on the power button, on the right side of the phone, just below the volume buttons.

This means that the rear of the terminal is completely free of elements beyond the triple camera (and flash) and the brand logo, which happens to occupy a privileged place in the middle of the phone.
