Exclusive: functionary break of the Galaxy A55 in three colors
We’ve entered the launch month of the Galaxy S24. It is said that Samsung will unveil new flagships on January 17th. A few months later, a premium A-series smartphone appears. We’re talking about the Galaxy A55, which recently fell victim to several leaks. Today we share exclusive official renders of the phone in three colors and take a first look at its design.
We have official renders of the Galaxy A55 in Awesome Iceblue, Awesome Lilac and Awesome Navy (see end of article). In many ways, the phone is similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy A54. In fact, almost all Samsung phones released in 2023, including the flagship model, had the same design language. Not much will change this year. However, it appears that the company is differentiating its mid-range models with a new design element.
The so-called key island button design is characterized by a slightly raised bezel around the on/off switch and the volume control. Samsung introduced this design on the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy A25 that were launched last month. The Galaxy A55 also has these features. As usual, the physical buttons are placed on the right side of the device. The renderings show the antenna lines on the chassis and confirm the metal structure.There have already been rumors about the phone’s aluminum body.
Aside from that slight curve on the right side, the frame is completely flat with rounded corners. The front and back of the laptop are also flat. The rear camera assembly consists of three lenses, each protruding from the back, and does not have a universal camera body. A side view of the handset shows the camera lens protruding slightly from the phone body.The LED flash is located next to the vertical camera.
On the front, the Galaxy A55 has a flat screen with large bezels. The chin is slightly thicker than the other three sides, so there are no symmetrical frames. There is a cutout for the selfie camera at the top center. Overall, the phone does not differ from the 2023 model on either the front or the back. The only noticeable change to the design is a small dent on the case.
The Galaxy A55 is powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 1480 processor. The new chipset is expected to be a 4nm solution with four high-performance CPU cores clocked at 2.75 GHz and four high-performance cores clocked at 2.05 GHz.The word processor is paired with the Xclipse 530 GPU, a custom word processor developed by Samsung in collaboration with AMD and based on Radeon graphics technology used in PC graphics and flagship Exynos chips.
Samsung will launch the Galaxy A55 in a variant with 8GB of RAM and possibly 256GB of internal storage. However, multiple storage configurations can exist. The device runs Android 14 with One UI 6.1 out of the box. The remaining specifications, including camera, display and battery details, are still under wraps.We expect more leaks about the phone in the coming weeks, especially after the launch of the Galaxy S24 later this month.
