The Galaxy A55, according to the leaks, has slimmer bezels and a new chipset compared to the A54. The A55 has the Exynos 1480, which improves GPU performance and is closer to the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 overall performance.
The design is mostly the same: a triple camera setup at the back and three individual camera rings. The design of the A55 looks very similar to all their midrange phones this year. There’s the new “Key Island” design with the Galaxy A55. We saw it on the A15 and A25 before. There’s a slight rise around the phone’s volume and power button. This looks a bit distinct from other phones.
The A55 has this design, too; the TENAA photos confirm this. There were leaked images and renders that show the same design. The model number of the Galaxy A55 is SM-A5560. However, there’s another similar model called the SM-C5560. This is primarily the Galaxy C55 or the Galaxy Y55.
Other leaks also show that the Galaxy A35 (with the Exynos 1380) was spotted on Korea’s NRRA certification. The Exynos 1480 on the Galaxy A55 will mostly get a new AMD GPU to boost GPU performance drastically. We expect 128GB and 256GB variants, with 8GB RAM (expandable via microSD).
The other new mid-range phone is probably the start of a new line. Since the A34 and A54 were some of the best-selling phones in the world, Samsung is perhaps planning to make phones in that mid-range category. The Galaxy C55 (Y55) might sit between the A35 and the A55.
According to the leaks, it has a 1080P 120Hz AMOLED display, a 13MP selfie camera, a 50MP main with an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP Macro/ Depth camera. It has 25W charging with a 5000mAh battery. It’s very similar to the A54 and has a 6.4″ screen size. Both phones have that triple-camera setup at the back with a plain back, an LED flashlight next to the camera module, and the Samsung logo.
Weirdly, the C55 has a normal design for the power button and not the Key Island design. The A55 has a new update with a boxy design, flat sides, and a more squared-off overall aesthetic, which we see with the S24.
