Samsung has just launched its latest addition to the Galaxy A-series, the Galaxy A7 (2018). This new device is the successor to the Galaxy A7 (2017) which came after the Galaxy A7 (2016). One of the main differences between the two devices is that the Galaxy A7 (2018) sports a triple camera setup, the first by the company. The Galaxy A7 (2018) also comes with a 6-inch Full HD+ display and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which is not so common yet. This device was first unveiled in Korea last week.
