Samsung Galaxy M55 5G Gets Wi-Fi Certified, Launch Likely Soon

Samsung’s flagship phones are all set to launch on January 17th. The S24 lineup will feature major improvements in software thanks to some new AI features. However, many of Samsung’s sales also come from their mid-range phones. There are plenty of leaks about the upcoming Exynos 1480-powered Samsung Galaxy A55 and the M55.

Now, the Samsung Galaxy M55 5G has passed the Wi-Fi Alliance certification. While the Wi-Fi certification listing doesn’t reveal anything about the specifications of the phone, we can assume that the phone will launch soon.

The Galaxy M54 launched in March 2023, so we can expect a similar release date for the M55. However, Samsung is pushing its launches about a month in advance. The S24 lineup is getting announced in January instead of the usual February. So, we can expect the Galaxy M55 5G to launch as soon as February 2024.

The Galaxy M55 has dual-SIM support, and the model number in the certification reads SM-M556B/DS. The certification was on January 4th, 2024. It only mentions one variant. 2.4GHz and 5GHz are the frequency bands of Wi-Fi certification.


This also isn’t the first time we’ve seen the M55 online. Samsung’s mid-range phones typically get plenty of criticism for weak chipsets. The Exynos 1380 was efficient, but it was nothing close to chips like the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2. Even the Snapdragon 782G outperforms it. As a result, Samsung is apparently offering a relatively more powerful chip for the Galaxy M55.

The Galaxy M55 could ship with a reasonably powerful Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset. It’s a lot more powerful than the 782G and the Exynos 1380, and it’s a reasonable leap in both CPU and GPU performance. It uses the 4nm Samsung fabrication but has no heating concerns or throttling on phones like the Honor 90. It has 8CPU cores at a max clock speed of 2.4 GHz. We’ll mostly get 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage, with Android 14 (One UI 6) out-of-the-box. It’s interesting how Samsung will price the M44 with the much more powerful Snapdragon 888 chipset.

The M5X model is usually the most expensive M series phone with the least cost-cutting. We can expect the M55 to cost about the same as the M54, at about 350$ at launch. The phones typically have really good cameras, too. The Galaxy M54 was a trimmed-down Galaxy A54 with almost all the essential features.

It had a 120Hz AMOLED and 108MP primary camera with OIS and the same Exynos 1380 chipset for a far lower price, and the phone was received well. A standout was the 6000mAh battery with a very power-efficient chip that doesn’t push for performance.
