Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)

Anyone looking forward to this?
I am currently using A8 (2018), not sure if it makes any sense to change to A7 (2018).

Full specs here.

The a7 and a9 they had a media launch event in KL. More likely they will launch in Malaysia first. But then, A7 still uses micro-USB, that's not good

My A7 2017 has Type-C, only A9 Pro 2016 is microUSB.

Strange that A7 2018 would change back to microUSB.

Yeah , 2017 has type c. Somehow rather they want to push people to buy A9 instead, but you see A9 has fingerprint at the back, while A7 is at the side.

not sure if the A7 will be launched here.

Guess samsung is trying to keep the cost low for this model by using usb-b.
My guess is RRP S$498 if launched in SG which is a lot lower than RRP of A8 at $648 when it was launched early this year.

The A7 won’t be launched in SG. Only A9. Samsung website got show.

They show A9 but not A7 so my guess is that they not launching A7 in SG
The Galaxy A9 looks good, hope the pricing won't be too high.

No fast charging and ip rating, hence the low price.
But with NFC and FHD amoled, i think the price is a winner.

Ah beng shop will sell even cheaper
Doubt will be lower than $300 in the first 2 months of launch. After that maybe.
