Back in the early days of the smartphone, having just one camera was already a big deal. Now, multiple camera setup has become a norm and one of the most recent examples are the newly launched 2018 edition of Samsung Galaxy A7 as well as Galaxy A9.
The Galaxy A7 2018 rear camera setup features a 24MP f/1.7 main camera which is accompanied by an 8MP f/2.4 ultra wide-angle camera and 5MP f/2.2 depth camera. Samsung then carried over the same setup to the Galaxy A9 2018 and added a 10MP f/2.4 2x telephoto camera to complete the package. For selfies, both Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A9 depended on a 24MP f/2.0 camera.
Since they belonged to the same family, both devices have the same design language but there are still a number of things that separate them apart. For example, the Galaxy A9 offers a larger 6.3-inch display as opposed to the 6.0-inch display on Galaxy A7 although both are still Super AMOLED panel and have a native Full HD+ resolution.
They are also powered by different processor with the Galaxy A9 being Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 while the Galaxy A7 is running on Samsung’s own Exynos 7885. Same goes for their RAM options as well since Galaxy A9 maxed out at 8GB which is slightly higher than Galaxy A7’s 6GB. Both devices can be obtained with up to 128GB internal storage depending on respective markets.
Similarly, Galaxy A9 has a bigger battery with a capacity of 3800mAh as compared to Galaxy A7 which settles for a 3300mAh battery. The new Galaxy A7 2018 is now readily available in Malaysia for RM 1299 while the release date and pricing for the Galaxy A9 2018 in our market is not yet known at the moment.
