Samsung’s Midrange Galaxy A55 Boasts Additional Safety Features and a Larger Screen

Samsung has unveiled its 2024 midrange phone portfolio, which combines more enticing pricing with less powerful hardware and feature sets than its flagship models. Galaxy A55 and A35 have Super AMOLED screens that measure 6.6 inches. The business incorporated Knox Vault, a gated security area that made its debut in the Galaxy S21, into its low-cost phones for the first time.

With customisable refresh rates up to 120Hz, the FHD+ (2220×1080) displays on both Android 14 phones have 374 pixels per inch. Both the Galaxy A54 from last year and this one come with Samsung’s Vision Booster function, which modifies the tone mapping of the screen according to the surrounding illumination. Their diagonal measurements, which are 6.6 inches (not including rounded corners) are marginally larger than the A54’s 6.4 inches.

The processors of the phones aren’t included in Samsung’s official papers, but according to Android Police, the A55 has an Exynos 1480, while the A35 has to make do with a slower Exynos 1380. RAM is available in two different configurations: 6GB or 8GB for the less expensive A35, and 8GB or 12GB for the A55. Each phone has a storage capacity of 128GB or 256GB, but only the A55 features a microSD card slot.

The two phones’ cameras will be the main distinctions between them in addition to performance. Each of the two back cameras in the set includes a 50MP primary camera and a 5MP macro lens. However, the A35 sports an 8MP ultra-wide lens, while the A55, which costs more, features a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. Furthermore, the A55 sports a 32MP front-facing camera as opposed to the 13MP one on the A35. To counteract camera shake, both video digital image stabilisation (VDIS) and optical image stabilisation (OIS) are used.

Predictably, neither phone seems to have the generative AI capabilities that Samsung employs to set itself apart with the Galaxy S24 series (and previous flagships, through software upgrades). The company’s “advanced AI Image Signal Processing (ISP)” for superior low-light shooting, available exclusively on the A55, is the closest you can get in this price range.

Each phone has a 5,000mAh battery. Two days is the estimated battery life from Samsung, though this could vary significantly based on usage.

Launch dates and prices are not yet available for the US. Samsung does, however, state that the A55 will retail for £439 (US$562) in the UK and the A35 for £339 ($434). In the UK, Samsung has scheduled a release date of March 20 for both devices.
