With the 24MP Lens and Depth Lens, the Galaxy A7's Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect to create stunning photos. While the S9 has a superior 12MP camera and 2.7GHz processor, the S8 tops out at a higher but less advanced 16MP snapper and 2.3GHz processing.

The pics are presented on a huge but trendy 6-inch screen with a Super AMOLED display, with a 1080 x 2220 resolution that curves around the edges of the device, also known as the classic Samsung Infinity Display.

The smartphone will be up for sale in select European and Asian markets starting from October. The key highlights of the smartphone are its triple rear cameras with 120-degree wide lens. The fingerprint sensor on Galaxy J6+ is embedded in the power button on the right side, while Galaxy J4+ relies on face unlock for unlocking the device. As per most phone these days, the selfie camera experience can be enhanced with bokeh effect via Selfie Focus together with adjustable lighting effect through Pro Lighting Mode as well as AR emoji and filters. We have yet to see any camera samples from Samsung's first attempt at three rear cameras, but I'm looking forward to see how it compares.


Samsung has launched the device in four colour options- Black, Blue, Pink and Gold. Connectivity options on board include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v 5.0, USB Type-B, NFC (optional) 4G VoLTE and Global Positioning System, among others. For audio output, Samsung has employed Dolby Atmos sound technology in the Galaxy A7. The dimensions of the phone are 159.8 x 76.8 x 7.5 mm and it weighs around 168 grams.

Scene Optimizer - a feature Samsung first introduced on the flagship Galaxy Note 9 - also makes an appearance on the Galaxy A7.

It will be available in three memory configurations - 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage.
