Samsung officially announces Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35


Samsung recently announced its latest mid-range Android phones, with the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 releasing in multiple markets in the coming months.


The Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 continue some of Samsung’s most successful smartphone lineup, this time with familiar designs, but refreshed specs.

In terms of their key specifications, both these devices are remarkably similar. Both feature a 6.6-inch FHD+ SuperAMOLED display at 120Hz, Android 14 out of the box, and a 5,000mAh battery. Where they differ is in areas like memory and cameras.

The higher-end models get better cameras in the Galaxy A55. It has a 50MP primary camera along with a 12MP ultrawide and 5MP macro camera. It also has a 32MP front-facing camera. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A35 sports a 50MP primary camera that is supported by a weaker 8MP ultrawide camera and a second 5MP macro camera. Its front-facing camera is also weak at just 13MP.

Another area of ​​difference is in memory and storage. The base variant of the Galaxy A55 has 8GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB storage. There is also another 256GB variant which is upgradeable to 12GB RAM. Meanwhile, the base model of the Galaxy A35 has 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, with two 8GB variants 128GB and 256GB.

Samsung hasn’t officially revealed which chipset powers these devices, presumably because it often varies by region. The Galaxy A55 is expected to be powered by the Exynos 1480 while the A35 is expected to use the Exynos 1380.

Both devices also stick to Samsung’s usual upgrade promise, with four years of major Android updates and five years of security updates. This leaves only the Galaxy S24 series with seven years of Android and security updates.

Samsung hasn’t revealed when these two devices will hit the market, but they should arrive globally within the next month or two.
