Samsung Galaxy A7 Leaked: 3 Cameras, Side Mounted Fingerprint Sensor
Images and renders of the alleged Samsung Galaxy A7 have been leaked, giving us a glimpse at the triple camera setup. If the reports are right, this will be the first triple camera smartphone by Samsung, not the flagship Galaxy S10. Along with this, there are reports of the Galaxy A9 Star Pro with four rear cameras. These devices are expected to launch at Samsung’s special Galaxy event on 11th October.
The leaked image shows off a vertical triple camera setup with a flash module below in the Galaxy A7. The Galaxy A7 is expected to run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 or Snapdragon 660. Some reports also suggest that the device could be powered by the Exynos 7885 processor. It is also rumoured to have a 4 GB RAM variant for some markets, including India.

Another striking feature, is the presence of the side mounted fingerprint scanner. Leaks also suggest that the device will have water proof and dust proof certification.
Galaxy A9 Star Pro:
Multiple reports suggest that a Samsung device with a four rear camera setup has been spotted. The cameras are allegedly stacked vertically. However, this seems to be a highly unlikely design choice by Samsung. This array will be placed on the left top corner of the device and the centre will house the fingerprint scanner, according to the report. The device is also expected to feature a dedicated Bixby button along with a headphone jack.
If the devices actually sport these features, it means that Samsung would not be reserving its best features for its flagship devices. The recent report that Samsung might be changing its lineup to better suit the needs of the market might be true.
