Samsung Galaxy A7 Has Three Rear Cameras & a 24-MP Selfie Camera

leaked photos of Samsung Galaxy A7

Well, this is interesting. 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, 2,220x1,080 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 It's available in good old pink.
It's available in good old pink.
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.

The Mobile Airbag Prevents Phone From Damage

When your flagship phone kisses floor your heart stops, to ease your moment. A German engineering student named Philip Frenzel may have the solution to save everyone some time, money, and unneeded stress. He has created the mobile airbag, a case that senses when your phone is in free fall and releases metal prongs to protect it from damage.

The design comprises a thin protective case that uses sensors to deploy metal springs whilst free falling. the metal springs can then be reinserted into the case and reused. Frenzel’s invention recently won Germany's mechatronic prize for 2018. The Aalen university student plans to launch a Kickstarter for the project next month.


The story of the award-worthy bachelor thesis begins with a jacket casually thrown over a banister, a brand new smartphone in the jacket pocket, the free fall of the new smartphone a whole floor below and a "spider Screen".

 The expensive replacement of the fragmented display worked for a full two weeks, then everything was black again - and the iPhone just scrap. "The crash caused all the electronics to break down," Said in an interview. Philip Frenzel, who is currently completing his mechatronics master's degree at Aalen University. 

For the follower phone had a more stable protection ago, that much was certain. But the 25-year-old was not satisfied with his research at the time. "Packing the iPhone with its aesthetic design in a chunky outdoor shell is not fun," says Frenzel and laughs.

 And since it is well known that he was inventive and did not let go of the problem of splintered cell phone displays, he sat down at the local workbench in the basement, "to try hard on the brain".

 Meanwhile, four years later, the result of this effort has flowed into a prize-worthy bachelor thesis and applied for a patent.

HTC Is Quitting from Smartphone Market In India

HTC has been struggling a lot lately, with their sales dropping to an all-time low. India, which is the biggest market for smartphone manufacturers, has seen itself being largely dominated by Chinese giants such as Xiaomi, Honor, and OnePlus. As it result, it has prompted HTC to call it a day on the Indian smartphone market.

As reported by Economic TimesHTC is finally exiting the Indian market, following the rise of the Chinese brands in the subcontinent

HTC India’s top management, which includes country head Faisal Siddiqui, sales head Vijay Balachandran and product head R Nayyar, have all submitted their resignations, as stated by three senior executives in the company. The company has also asked its 70-80 member team to leave with a few exceptions such as chief financial officer Rajeev Tayal. It is also snapping all distribution agreements in the country after halting local manufacturing for almost a year now.
That being said, HTC isn’t demolishing the Indian business completely, but instead, will function as a small entity. “It plans to sell virtual reality devices online with Taiwan completely controlling Indian operation. This will be like an extremely small business.” Additionally, there are plans of the company entering the market as an online-only brand, which remains subject to the company being able to turnaround sales globally.
However, dissolving the company is not going to be that easy for them, since HTC has a lot of troubles headed their way. A lot of distributors planning to take legal action for non-payment of dues and not compensating for the stock in trade pipeline, with people stating that “HTC owes money in several crores”.

In a response to this, an HTC spokesperson said that they are aware of the potential dispute. “We are working with channel partners to ensure no disruption on business and service to our customers”
However, in an official statement, HTC has confirmed to Gadgets 360 that it has decided let go of a major chunk of its Indian workforce to achieve efficiency in operation. The company adds that ‘more than 10 employees’ will continue to overlook their Indian plans, while they realign resources against its key strategic initiatives.

And most importantly, no, it’s not exiting the market and will continue to sell its phones in India.
