Design And Display
The Galaxy A7 2018 sports an aluminium alloy overall unibody and it looks like the most attractive smartphone from Galaxy’s A series. Well, that might be because of the triple rear camera at the back.
The cameras were placed exquisitely at the top left corner with the LED flash coming underneath. The Samsung logo takes centre stage of course. The device measures 7.5mm in thickness and weighs 168g overall.
