Samsung Electronics has announced its first triple camera smartphone. According to a leak from SamsungMobile.News, Samsung will be launching its first phone with four rear cameras - Galaxy A9 Star Pro (2018) - on October 11. While the company refers to the phone as Galaxy A7, we expect the retail package to have Galaxy A7 (2018) branding. The device will be available in select European and Asian markets beginning in the fall, with Samsung planning to release the handset to other markets in the near future. It seems like a good way to stand out in the crowded market.

The smartphone features a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with a 2,220 x 1,080 resolution and sports a taller screen. Under the hood, the device comes powered by an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. All three models come with a microSD Slot, enabling users to further expand the storage capacity up to 512GB.

Obviously, the centerpiece of this year's Galaxy A7 is the triple camera setup on the back.

The triple camera consists of a 120-degree wide-angle lens, a 24-megapixel main lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

The phone also features a 24MP selfie camera which is accompanied by its own adjustable flash. The camera also features Samsung's intelligent Scene optimiser, like the Galaxy Note9, which will automatically categorize subjects as well as adjust the colour, contrast, and brightness to optimise image quality. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience UI laid on top. The battery is 3,300mAh, and there is also NFC which means services like Samsung Pay will work on the device.

Interestingly, the Galaxy A7 has a fingerprint sensor mounted on the side - much like Sony's implementation - with an indent located underneath the volume buttons on the right of the device. It's coming in four colors, blue, black, gold, and pink.
