Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) in Five Keys

Samsung today presents its new Galaxy A7 (2018), a premium mid-range that incorporates a series of very striking features.

Firstly because they are the first mobile that adds them within the South Korean manufacturer and secondly because it confirms a trend that is rumored to also come for the Galaxy S10.

Let’s review the keys of this Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), a mobile that marks the beginning of a change of trend in Samsung and where we have no doubt that the next phones of the brand will continue to maintain some of the additions we have seen in this Galaxy A7 (2018).

The mobile that releases small changes in Samsung
Beyond being a mid-range premium more or less powerful, the most striking of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is that it is an important terminal and that adds elements that go out of line that we know, such as a clean rear and the presence of the triple camera. On the other hand, the Galaxy A7 (2018) also confirms that some elements are not played, such as betting on Super AMOLED screens.

We must remember that we are facing a new Galaxy A and therefore a mobile that will be promoted in multiple markets. We still do not have prices or availability in Spain, but it will undoubtedly be a terminal to follow closely.


The screen is always an important element in any mobile and the Galaxy A7 (2018) is no less. In this year’s model, despite not being a ‘Plus’ we have a size of 6 inches with FullHD + resolution. That is, the Galaxy A7 (2018) is larger than the Galaxy A8, so it can be confusing.

This Galaxy A7 (2018) adds several new features, but the Super AMOLED screen is not touched. Although it grows in size.
The technology used is SuperAMOLED, a technology with which Samsung is very comfortable and it seems that we will see changes here as for example if it occurs in other brands such as LG, where he has experimented with several panels in their different ranges.

Internal improvement is in RAM
The Galaxy A7 (2018) incorporates an eight-core processor at 2.2 GHz. The official data sheet is not specified, but the data fits with the Exynos 7885 Octa. It is a processor that has already been used previously and is normally compared with the Qualcomm 600 range. That is, a powerful chipset but far from the high range.

Where there are changes is in RAM. Here we can see how the Galaxy A7 (2018) embraces up to 6GB of RAM, although its basic version stays at 4GB. For storage, we have 64GB and with 128GB option.

At connectivity level we have NFC, LTE Cat 6, WiFi ac and Bluetooth 5.0. Android 8.0 Oreo is the version we found, although in the future it will update Android 9 Pie together with the Samsung Experience 10.

Meanwhile, the battery stays at a usual 3,300 mAh and the sound section is quite interesting with Dolby Atmos support. It also has support for Bixby and Samsung Health.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 is the first of the brand to add triple camera. The main sensor has 24 megapixels and an aperture lens f / 1.7, the secondary sensor is an eight megapixel ‘ultrawide’ with an aperture lens f / 2.4 and the third is a five megapixel camera and 120 degrees angle.

With the secondary lens we can apply the blur effect while with the third of 120 degrees we achieve a field of vision equivalent to that of the human eye, according to Samsung.

Samsung’s triple camera is focused on wide-angle, with up to 120 degrees of vision. To which we must add Pixel Binning and artificial intelligence.
In addition to these effects, the main lens uses artificial intelligence and the Pixel Binning technique to gather four pixels in one and achieve better photos in low light. We also have the option of Live Focus, where we can control the depth of the field to adjust the bokeh effect. A photographic section that we are left wanting to try and a priori has some very promising technical characteristics.

It is not the first Samsung to add the fingerprint reader on the side, that remains for the Samsung Galaxy J6 + that was presented a few days before. But this Galaxy A7 2018 confirms the trend and places it in the same position.

The fingerprint sensor is located on the power button on the right side and just below the volume buttons. This causes the back part to be completely smooth, uniquely characterized by the Samsung logo and the triple camera.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) will be available in blue, black and gold and will be available in Europe and Asia starting in the fall.
