The Galaxy A7 packs a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display and is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. However, Samsung has not specified whether the device packs a Snapdragon processor or an Exynos SoC, and also, the processor powering the device will vary depending on the market. We will have to wait and find out which SoC will come to India.
The Galaxy A7 packs 4/6 GB of RAM and 64GB/128 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card. The device packs a 3,300 mAh battery and runs Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung’s Experience UI.
Coming to the Galaxy A7’s standout feature, the device packs a triple rear camera setup, which is a first for Samsung.

The hardware is backed by software features such as Live Focus to control the depth of field effect and adjust bokeh variables, and AI Scene Optimizer functionality which allows the camera to automatically identify the subject, tweak the color profile, contrast and brightness values to deliver superior quality images.
