Flipkart will offer a ₹ 1,610 discount from the listed price of the Galaxy A7, which means the 4GB RAM/64GB ROM variant will effectively cost ₹ 23,990 and the 6GB RAM/128GB ROM variant will cost ₹ 28,990. HDFC Bank is offering a cashback of ₹ 2,000 to its credit and debit card users. There is also a no Cost EMI option on the Samsung Galaxy A7 starting at ₹ 2,666 per month.
Samsung Galaxy A7: Specifications
Galaxy A7’s front is lit by a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with a resolution of 2280x1080— which means an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The phone is a glass sandwich with curved glass on both sides, but not to the extent of the S9 and Note9.
The smartphone is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7885 octa-core processor with a clock speed of 2.2GHz paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable up to 512GB.
The phone runs Android Oreo 8.0 with Samsung’s UI running atop, and is backed by a 3,300mAh Lithium-ion battery.
Now let’s talk about the most important feature of the Galaxy A7—the triple camera setup.
The smartphone has a 24MP “primary" camera with f/1.7 aperture and autofocus along with a depth-sensing 5MP secondary camera with a fixed focal length and f/2.2 aperture. The third camera has an ultra-wide lens with a field-of-view of 120° and f/2.4 aperture. All of this is expected to be at a fraction of the price of Huawei’s P20, which also features a similar triple camera setup.

Another interesting feature of the phone is the fingerprint scanner—on its power button at the right side of the phone. Samsung previously put this on the Samsung Galaxy J6+.
The phone is expected to come in four colours—black, blue, gold, pink.
