Triple-camera Galaxy A7 goes on sale in South Korea


Last updated: October 23rd, 2018 at 08:21 UTC+01:00

Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy A7 last month. It’s the company’s first smartphone with a triple-camera system at the back. India was one of the first markets to get this device. Samsung has now started selling it in its home country.

Customers in South Korea can now pick up the company’s triple-camera touting Galaxy A7. This also happens to be Samsung’s first smartphone with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Galaxy A7 goes on sale in South Korea

The Galaxy A7 is being sold for 499,400 won in South Korea. That’s roughly $440. It’s a mid-range device with the specs to match the price tag. It has a 6-inch 1080×2220 pixel resolution AMOLED display. The Exynos 7885 is under the hood with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Support for microSD cards up to 512GB is present as well. A 3,300mAh battery keeps the lights on. The device ships with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Its triple-camera system is what customers will buy this device for. The primary 24-megapixel sensor is aided by an 8-megapixel Ultra Wide sensor. We found that the camera works as advertised in our Galaxy A7 review. There’s also a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Ultra Wide sensor really does come in handy when you want to fit more in the frame. The Galaxy A7 has a 24-megapixel selfie camera as well.

The three cameras are lined up vertically at the back. It’s a departure from a design element that made Samsung’s devices stand out from the competition. We have opined that it would have been better for Samsung to retain its uniqueness and many of you have agreed.

Samsung is yet to confirm when it will begin sales of the new Galaxy A9. It’s the world’s first smartphone with four rear cameras. Samsung said at the launch event earlier this month that the device will be out in November.
