Weekly poll: Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) and its triple camera, love it or hate it?
A sign of things to come or an outlier? The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) has a triple camera on its back and a fingerprint reader on its side, quite an unusual design for Samsung. Perhaps we’re seeing the company test things ahead of the upcoming Galaxy S flagship.
Because just like an S flagship, the new A7 model has a tall Super AMOLED screen, IP68 waterproofing and Samsung Pay. There are even things like a microSD slot and a 3.5mm jack, Samsung is one of the few remaining companies to offer such staples.
But you probably want to hear more about the camera – should Huawei worry? The triple camera setup on the Galaxy A7 (2018) features a 24MP main camera (f/1.7), an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP depth sensor. That last one would ideally have been a telephoto camera.
There’s a single selfie camera with a 24MP sensor and a fixed focus f/2.0 lens.
This is a premium mid-ranger and it has plenty of features, but not everything. Which is reflected in the price, €350, which would probably prove to be less than half the cost of the next Galaxy S.
The A-series typically have a less than impressive chipset and this one is no exception – an octa-core A53 processor won’t impress anyone. Not when several Honor phones pack Huawei’s top chipset and the Pocophone F1 gets you a Snapdragon 845 for €300.
Then again, there’s only one mid-ranger with a triple camera and it’s the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018).

What do you mean by that effed reverse logic??? About what your talking about??? In the report I have read, it said Sony owned the patent and sold it to Samsung. But I think it became a mutual patent between them and therefore, both of them will us...

That is some effed up reverse logic? Sony never owned the patent, therefore Sony must have given it to Samsung? Mmm hmm...
