However, now that we know Google can somehow get just as good of shots, better in most cases with a single lens as opposed to two or even three, there's something about triple camera setups that get under my skin.
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.
In a phone that touts camera prowess, Samsung hasn't forgotten the all-important selfie shooter at the front, too. The feature will allow you to control the depth of field in real-time.
The smartphone will be up for sale in select European and Asian markets starting from October.
There's also a 24MP camera for selfies on the front of the device, with adjustable LED flash and Selfie Focus for bokeh effect selfies. Yes, the name's confusing, and we here at SamMobile think the new Galaxy A7 is a product of Samsung responding to the competition that it has been facing from Chinese companies like Huawei.
Created to make life more convenient, the Galaxy A7 comes with Bixby4, Samsung Pay5 and Samsung Health. The device will be available in four colours - blue, black gold and pink. Under the hood, the device comes powered by an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE Cat.6, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps), NFC is some regions, GPS/GLONASS, and a micro USB port. The latest iteration of the Galaxy A7 apparently improves on the 2017 version of the device announced earlier past year.
Samsung Mobile President DJ Koh said earlier this month that the company would bring more cutting-edge features to the company's midrange phones.
