The Galaxy A7 camera also gets a scene optimiser that automatically detects among 19 scenarios such as food, flower, or sunset, etc. and optimises each shot for the best picture composition. Consumers can enhance their instant messaging experience by creating customized avatars using the ‘AR Emoji’ feature by taking a picture of themselves with the selfie camera or a friend with the rear camera.
