Samsung has finally joined the league of triple camera design. Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is the first smartphone produced by the South Korean electronics giant to feature the triple rear camera after big guys like OPPO FIND X, VIVO NEX, LG, and HUAWEI MATE 20 PRO.
Adopting the design can be really good and smart, photography would be taken to the next level on Samsung mobile phones and Samsung has failed to give us the notch screen display design but I still they do.
Samsung Galaxy A7 DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Galaxy A7 (2018) is designed using 2.5D glass on both side and metal frame to bring out a premium looking phone with a premium feel.
No fingerprint sensor is placed on the back but rather on the side which makes the rear side really smooth with no obstructions with only just the vertically aligned triple camera which came out as a block and an LED Flashlight and the screen is protected using Corning Gorilla glass.
Samsung Galaxy A7 features 6.0-inches FHD+ super AMOLED display screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 2220 x 1080 pixels in resolution, a not too big bezel to the sides and a big one to the north and south of the phone (top and bottom).
The display is a good one, with its deep black color quality and contrast ratio plus the device support the always-on mode to display the notification on locked screens.
