Samsung has launched the Galaxy A71, a smartphone that offers not only a large display, powerful performance and big battery, but complements those features with an elegant design. But the real highlight of the smartphone is its quad camera setup. The phone features a primary 64-megapixel sensor, an ultra-wide camera, a macro camera, and a depth sensor for portrait photography. That’s plenty of sensors for any smartphone photographer, and here’s why we think it could be a great camera smartphone for a lot of users.
Four cameras to up your photography game
The new Galaxy A71 offers four modes for the customers. It features an L-shaped camera housing that includes the sensors and the flash module. It is a good-looking design that goes well with the gradient finish back panel.
To begin with, there’s a high-resolution 64-megapixel primary sensor at the back that can record 4K videos at 30fps. The F1.8 aperture allows a lot of light into the image sensor which helps in shooting great-looking photos, even at night. The camera also supports PDAF for quick focusing in both photos and videos.
With the 64-megapixel camera, you can go high-res and capture more details – this powerful camera truly lets you shoot images first and crop them later, while still preserving much of the scene in amazing detail. A dedicated Night Mode is available on the phone for clicking low-light photos that are bright with a lot of details irrespective of the lighting conditions.
Next, there’s a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor that provides a 123-degree field of view. The 13mm lens promises great-looking shots with features such as Auto HDR. You can fit a lot into the frame, which is great for city landscapes.
There’s a 5-megapixel macro camera that lets the user focus on subjects as close as 3.5cm. The other 5-megapixel camera is the depth of field unit that offers professional-looking portrait shots. The camera also supports HDR and a Live Focus mode which lets you preview the bokeh before you even take the photo.
The camera system is also loaded in the video department. The main sensor, the ultrawide, and the selfie camera can shoot 4K videos at 30fps. One can even shoot super slow motion 720p videos at 240fps. Another noteworthy feature included in the phone is Super Steady Shot, which offers video stabilisation at 1080p. You can record smooth, non-shaky action-cam-like videos.
Best in class features
Apart from the camera goodness it packs, the Galaxy A71 also comes across as a worthy mid-range smartphone. It features a 6.7-inch FHD+ sAMOLED Plus display with a central punch-hole camera that houses a 32-megapixel selfie unit. This allows you to take great Slow-mo selfies as well.
The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 730 processor, which is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot is also available for storage expansion up to 512GB.
The phone features an in-display fingerprint scanner, supports Samsung Knox security, Samsung Pay, and offers a 4,500mAh battery with 25W super-fast charging support. All of this is packed in a 7.7mm slim design that is sure to catch the eye.
As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy A71 is a smartphone with a camera that promises to be awesome in all aspects and comes across as a complete package that should be able to deliver on all the key aspects like design, performance and battery life too.
