Samsung today announced a new member of the Galaxy family: the Galaxy A7. The company’s new Galaxy A7 handset comes with something we have never seen on a Galaxy phone before: a triple camera setup.

Samsung’s new Galaxy A7 has a triple camera setup on the back that lets you get much wider shots. The new 8MP ultra wide lens on the back of the phone can let you take 120-degree shots, with Samsung saying “the Galaxy A7 captures the world exactly as you see it for unrestricted wide-angle photos.” Along with the 8MP ultra wide lens, there’s the 24MP lens, combined with the 5MP depth lens that lets you take photos with the bokeh effect, much like the iPhone’s Portrait Mode. Like other Galaxy phones, you can control the depth of field for these photos on the A7, too.

There’s also a 24MP camera for selfies on the front of the device, with adjustable LED flash and Selfie Focus for bokeh effect selfies.

Apart from that, the Galaxy A7 packs a 6-inch Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, and a fingerprint scanner for unlocking the phone. The Galaxy A7 comes in blue, black, gold and pink, and it will be available in select European and Asian markets this Fall. Samsung expects to expand availability in the “near future.” Pricing details are yet to be confirmed.

By the way: Samsung is expected to announce another Galaxy device in October, so make sure to keep an eye out for that.
