Samsung’s triple camera Galaxy A7 lands in India

Samsung Galaxy A7

The Samsung Galaxy A7 has made its way to India, just a week after it got launched in South Korea. Its main claim to fame is the fact that it has three cameras at the back, a first for the company.

Surprisingly, Samsung is debuting this innovation on a mid-range phone. The Galaxy A7 starts at Rs 23990 for its 4GB/64GB variant and ends at Rs 28990 for its 6GB/128GB option. It’ll have to battle against the Rs 20999 Poco F1 at this price range. The Xiaomi phone offers a faster Snapdragon 845 processer, but lacks Widevine L1 certification to stream videos in HD.

The Galaxy A7 comes with Widevine L1 certification and adds an extra camera to give it a competitive edge. The setup consists of 24MP + 8MP + 5MP lenses. The main 24MP autofocus f/1.7 sensor handles photos with the help of Pixel Binning to combine four pixels into a single ‘Super Pixel’ for clearer images in low light conditions.

The secondary 5MP depth sensor lets users adjust the depth of field before and after taking a picture. The third 8MP sensor has a 120-degree ultra-wide angle lens to expand the scope of the camera. Samsung’s also thrown in AR Emoji and Pro-Lighting features to turn faces into emoji and add lighting effects to snaps, respectively.
