The rumor mill is trying to paint a pretty clear picture for the Samsung Galaxy S10, one where the future flagship boasts three cameras on the back. And it looks like that might be a safer bet now. Behold the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) - a smartphone with three cameras on the back that should only cost a fraction of the Huawei P20 Pro's price.

The Galaxy A7 brings a brand new photography experience to the Galaxy A line. The device is the first Samsung smartphone to feature a triple camera setup that sees a 24-megapixel f/1.7 camera with an 8-megapixel f/2.4 ultra-wide 120-degree lens and a 5-megapixel f/2.2 depth-sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 42mm variant has a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display with 360x360 pixels resolution and a 270mAh battery. The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor.

Galaxy A7 (2018) is Samsung\'s first triple-rear-cam phone

Samsung has officially announced its first new smartphone in the A series ahead of its A Galaxy Event on 11 October.

The Galaxy A7 is expected to be available in select Asian and European markets this fall with plans to be available in other worldwide markets soon. It is a 24MP affair, too, complete with Selfie Focus for bokeh-ed portraits, Pro Lighting mode for imitation of studio lamps, and even an "adjustable" LED flash for the times when faux studio luminance doesn't cut it. The smartphone also comes with Dolby Atmos. It was previously thought to be announced during the event, but that will now be exclusively dedicated to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, it seems.

Measuring 159.8 x 76.8 x 7.5 mm, the device weighs 168g and offers dual-SIM functionality inside a IP68 dust and waterproof casing offering a 74.4% screen-to-body ratio and 411 pixels-per-inch. The support page for the phone is already live so we can expect the device soon in India. Additionally, Samsung has also provided a sleep tracker that detects REM cycles and other sleep cycles to help users monitor their sleeping patterns.
