Well, this is interesting because, A day after leaked photos gave us the first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy A7 phone and its triple rear camera, the company went out and announced the phone officially.
But that means Samsung has something else in stock for its Oct. 11 unveiling, doesn’t it?
Let’s go back to the Galaxy A7 first.
The phone is perhaps best described as a photography-oriented mid-ranger. It’s got a 6-inch, 2220×1080 Super AMOLED screen, an unnamed octa-core processor (which will differ by market and mobile operator), 4/6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage (again, depending on market and operator), a 3,300mAh battery and Android 8.0.
The cameras are another story.
On the back, it has a 24-megapixel, F1.7 camera accompanied with an 8-megapixel, F2.4 ultra-wide, 120-degree sensor, and a 5-megapixel, F2.2 depth sensor (for those portrait photos). On the front, it has a single, 24-megapixel, F2.0 shooter.
All of this camera tech will allow Galaxy A7 users to do some the tricks, like adjusting bokeh effect strength as you take the photo. As seen on the Galaxy S series of phones first, the A7’s main sensor can combine four pixels into one to get better photos in low-light situations, and Samsung’s intelligent Scene Optimizer is also on board.
Samsung Galaxy A7 is available in four colors: blue, black, gold and pink. It’s coming to select European and Asian markets this fall; the price has not the.
Samsung says it will “celebrate the launch” of a “new member to the galaxy family” on October 11. Could it be the, A9 with four rear cameras? We’ll have to wait a few more weeks and see.
