Global runner-up Huawei, which surpassed Apple in shipments in the second quarter, has already launched its own triple camera phone. A day after leaked photos gave us a first glimpse of Samsung's Galaxy A7 phone and its triple rear camera, the company went out and announced the phone officially.

Samsung Galaxy A7 with triple cameras has been launched in South Korea. The latest iteration of the Galaxy A7 apparently improves on the 2017 version of the device announced earlier previous year. No specs are known yet, but despite this being the first time Samsung will have put a quad-lens camera on a phone we'd expect this to be a mid-range handset, as the "A" series has always been mid-range. Samsung adds that the 24MP lens lets in more light by combining four pixels into one in low-light conditions.

The cameras also categorise subjects and optimise color, contrast and brightness to best represent them. The categories include Food, Portraits, Flowers, Indoor scenes, and Landscapes, among others.

The phone hints at Samsung's new strategy for the mid-range smartphones, in which the company is now introducing features that are even not available on its flagship phones. Under the hood, the device comes powered by an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz.

Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE Cat.6, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps), NFC is some regions, GPS/GLONASS, and a micro USB port.

The fingerprint scanner is present on the rear side and the device is backed by a 3300mAh battery with adaptive fast charging.

"Samsung is committed to delivering meaningful innovation to all consumers across the Galaxy family, no matter who they are or where they are in the world" said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung says that the Galaxy A7 will be available in select European and Asian markets this fall and that it will be coming to other markets in the future.
