Coming to the specifications, the Galaxy A7 (2018) comes with a 6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display with Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

The setup comprises a 24-megapixel f/1.7 aperture main sensor, an 8-megapixel 120-degree ultra-wide angle secondary sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor for depth sensing. For selfies, there’s a single 24MP shooter on the front, aided by a dedicated LED flash.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A7 (2018) employs a 2.2GHz octa-core Exynos 7885 processor. The chipset is paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, which ships with 64GB or 128GB storage, respectively. The memory is further expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card. A 3,300mAh battery with adaptive fast charging powers the handset. Other features include Android 8.0 Oreo-based Experience UI out of the box and connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5, and GPS.
