UPDATE: Samsung Malaysia is now receiving pre-orders for the Galaxy A7 (2018). Details below.

If four rear cameras are a little too many for you, Samsung Malaysia just announced the availability of the Galaxy A7 (2018), and this smartphone only has three rear cameras.

Launched late last month, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is the South Korean electronics giant’s first triple camera smartphone. This device is finally available for pre-order in Malaysia and it can be yours for RM1,299. It is available in three colours — Black, Gold and Blue — and pre-orders will run from the 15th to the 21st of October 2018.

While it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting this pretty pink one you see in these photos, the good news is that customers who pre-order this device will receive a selfie stick, a thermos cup and screen protection from Samsung, worth a total of RM302, for free.

To recap, this smartphone features a 6-inch Super AMOLED display pushing a Full HD+ resolution of 2220×1080 pixels. Inside, the device is powered by an Exynos 7885 octa-core 2.2GHz processor mated to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

If you need more, you can pop a microSD card into the dedicated slot on the A7’s triple SIM tray for up to 512GB of extra space. Keeping the device running is a 3,300 mAh battery that charges via micro USB.

For photos, the Galaxy A7 features a triple camera setup at the rear where the main 24MP f/1.7 camera is flanked by an 8MP f/2.4 ultra-wide unit and a 5MP f/2.2 sensor for depth effects. In front, you’ve got a 24MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture lens.

UPDATE: A previous version of this article stated that the Galaxy A7 (2018) was available for purchase because that was the information that we received from official sources. Today, new information has surfaced that reveals customers would only be able to pre-order this smartphone so the article has been updated to reflect this.

Is there a front finger print scanner.

Does not appear to have a rear scanner


    It's a side mounted fingerprint scanner which is also the power button.


Thanks for your prompt response. The dedicated SD slot is always a plus point but suspect that many will wait for the A9 with 4 cameras.

Please do comparison with the Redmi Note 5 and Asus 5 and also the Vivo and Opppo competition.

No need to compare with P20 Pro as it a totally different price segment


    Why not? People do compare with the fruit phone even they l are in different price segment too. 3K vs 6K price tags.


      It’s not about the price. It’s about category the hp is situated. Low-tier, mid-tier, high-tier, *flagship . Comparing low-tier to flagship, that’s foolish. Comparing mid-tier to flagship, also foolish. Get it ?

      If the 3K is a flagship, and the 6K also a flagship, than it is suit to be compared with.

      *flagship→ Hp which got the most hype and attention.


        So, there is no super high tier to compare with fruit, it’s different segment, that’s what I am trying to say.

        We also cant compare flagship to flagship. Do we compare Proton flagship with Volvo flagship ?


Even though I’m a honor user and I hate swan(no offense) I still have to tell the thing that Swan would say when Apple had the fingerprint scanner they at least placed it in a nice position that many even android users loved but then when rear fingerprint scanners were introduced a lot of people also loved it then most manufacturers used rear, front, in display and ultrasonic fingerprint scanners. Even though Apple removed the touch Id still face Id was awesome and then still fingerprint scanners were wanted by users. Samsung is the only phone manufacturer that has employees that don’t use their brain properly and put the fingerprint scanner in a odd position. First they put beside camera now in the power button soon they gonna put at the USB port come on Samsung don’t do shitty stuff and ruin your prestige. You introduced A7 and A9 which I can tell nice phones bcoz got 3 to 4 cameras but then you guys will do something to ruin it. That’s what I hate about Samsung they do something good then they pull it down with something bad

joseph yaw

is it AI camera ?


    yes it is, every shots taken are like dslr

      Are you in your natural habitat in bitching?

        swan m2

        he is one and only swan, without him, here will be very boring
        we like him here so we can bitch with each others


Yes it is AI Camera


Is there another A7 spec that comes with 6GB RAM instead?
