Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A7 (2018), the company's very first Android smartphone that features triple cameras on its back. The upcoming handset will be available in European and Asian markets this fall, but its price hasn’t been revealed yet.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) comes with a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2220. The screen comes with rounded corners and the display doesn’t have a notch, which Samsung has been avoiding unlike other Android phone makers. The Galaxy A7 (2018) also features a glass unibody design, which is similarly found on Samsung’s other mid-range smartphones.

Inside, the Galaxy A7 (2018) is powered by an unspecified octa-core 2.2GHz chipset with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot that will allow users to expand their storage up to 512GB. The handset is packing a 3,300mAh battery and it doesn’t appear to support any kind of fast charging technology.

The internals are fine and fitting for a mid-range Android smartphone, but its the cameras that make the Galaxy A7 (2018) stand out. Up front, the device comes with a 24-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 lens, which should be more than enough for taking selfies. On the back, the Galaxy A7 (2018) comes with a triple-camera setup comprising 24MP, 8MP and 5MP sensors. The 24MP sensor will be the main camera and it’s equipped with a f/1.7 aperture lens. The camera is able to produce better images by combining four pixels into one when shooting low-light photos, according to 9To5Google.

The 8MP camera comes with an Ultra-Wide f/2.4 lens, which should allow users to capture more with a 120-degree field-of-view.  The inclusion of a wide angle camera is very reminiscent of how LG implements dual cameras on its flagship phones. The third camera, which comes with a 5MP sensor, is equipped with an f/2.2 “Depth Lens.” Samsung claims that this camera will be responsible for making its Live Focus feature to work and enable users to control the depth of field and adjust the bokeh effect on their photos.

The Galaxy A7 (2018) seems like a decent mid-range smartphone that could shake up the market. SamMobile speculates that the handset could cost around $400. Samsung might reveal more details about pricing and availability on Oct. 11.

The Galaxy A7 (2018) may not be a flagship handset, but its triple-camera setup is a big deal for Samsung. There are already rumors going around that at least one of the variants of next year’s Galaxy S10 might come with three cameras on its back.
