The Samsung Galaxy A series was updated earlier this year with a new version of the Samsung Galaxy A8 which brought two front facing selfie shooters. That said, the company has remained mum regarding its other Galaxy A devices… until now. Touting the new Galaxy A 7 as “the ultimate device for wherever life leads you”, the new Galaxy A7 brings a slew of new hardware updates including a camera with 3 sensors – a first for Samsung devices.
The new Galaxy A7 comes with a larger 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080×2220 pixels. It also has a larger 3,300 mAh battery. In the core of the new Samsung Galaxy A7 is an unidentified Octacore (8-core) processor with a clock speed of 2.2GHz. This complemented with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Of course, you will be able to add up to 512GB of additional memory through the microSD card slot.
The main camera of the Galaxy A7 is a24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture paired with a 5-megapixel, f/2.2 sensor for depth sensing. This is complemented with an 8-megapixel, f/2.4 ultra wide sensor with a 120° field of view. The front, selfie camera is a 24-megapixel fixed focus sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.
The new entry into the Galaxy A Series will be Samsung’s first foray into the triple camera sensor arena. However, the South Korean behemoth has omitted IP68 water and dust resistance in the new entry. However, the new Galaxy A7 comes with Dolby Atmos 2 sound compatibility which you can take advantage of with headphones.
