Galaxy A7 (2018) is Samsung\'s first triple-rear-cam phone

Samsung Electronics on Thursday announced the launch of its first smartphone with a triple camera setup, the Galaxy A7, in South Korea.

The rear setup includes an 8MP ultra-wide f/2.4 camera, a 24MP f/1.7 standard camera, and a 5MP f/2.2 "Depth" camera.

The former two we've spotted on devices before, but the depth-specific lens will allow users to adjust the depth of field in camera mode to create that oh so coveted bokeh effect. On the other hand, Samsung is said to keep the pricing of the Galaxy A7 below RS 30,000 so that it can attract the maximum number of users who are now inclined towards Xiaomi and other brands.

On the front, there is a 24MP selfie shooter (F2.0) with an adjustable LED flash.

Chrissy Teigen Wants You to Keep Mispronouncing Her Last Name
It's all in good fun, of course (they quite clearly are sickeningly loved up), but it's just bloody amusing and I love it. When one other Twitter person asserted that even Teigen says "tee-gen", the Lip Sync Combat cohost replied, "I do know".

Samsung has only said it will be available in select Asian and European markets starting this autumn but hasn't specified the UK. Samsung has done a clever thing here by incorporating it on the side of the smartphone, so let us see if future launches will get to see this kind of biometric positioning. Pricing details are yet to be confirmed. A few days ago, it teased the upcoming October 11 event dubbed as "4x Fun" thereby speculating that Samsung could unveil a quadruple camera system with Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphone.

Keeping up with the trends, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) offers slightly curved front and glass back while the side frame isn't specified, but seeing that it has no antenna lines it's likely made of plastic.

Global runner-up Huawei, which surpassed Apple in shipments in the second quarter, has already launched its own triple camera phone.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 is, therefore, the first device in the house to pave the way for this new trend. The Galaxy A7 and Galaxy Watch get support for Samsung Pay payments on NFC terminals, but Samsung Pay's biggest draw has been its ability to work with virtually any payment terminal or card machine in the world.

Messi overtakes Ronaldo in Champions League hat-trick count
It means he now holds the record outright for most hat-tricks in the competition, one more than arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo . PSV were still in it and could have equalised when Hirving Lozano's finish was blocked, crucially, by Gerard Pique.

The Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus is expected to come with a 6-inch Infinity Display, however, there is no information on the exact resolution of the panel. If not, users can still enjoy using the 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display and it offers four AKG speakers with Dolby Atmos sound technology.

One high-end feature the A7 does have is Intelligent Scene Optimizer, which debuted on the Galaxy S9.

Samsung is always quick to embrace new trends in the smartphone industry.
