We’ve been following rumors surrounding Samsung’s upcoming mid-range phones, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35. Well, we just got a big leak of the Galaxy A55 with live images showing this device in the flesh. Unsurprisingly, the design will look quite familiar.

At this point, we’re still dealing with leaked information, as Samsung has yet to officially announce these phones. So, you’ll want to take this news with a grain of salt. Any bit of information can change between now and the official launch date. So you’ll want to keep that in mind.

New live images of the Galaxy A55 leave very little to the imagination

The Galaxy A Series has been the next best thing to the Galaxy S series of phones… Well, that was until Samsung started releasing its Galaxy S FE phones. In any case, you’re still getting a compelling device with the Galaxy A series phone. Right now, we’re following links and rumors regarding the Galaxy A55. This is going to be the next premium mid-range phone from the company, and people who use the Galaxy A phones will be excited.

In the leaked images we have pasted below, we see that this phone is taking on the design aesthetic of the Galaxy S Series phones. So, we see the camera lenses extending individually from the body of the phone rather than being held within a camera bumper. This is the design aesthetic first introduced with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Now, pretty much every phone, with the exception of the Galaxy Z Fold phones, has launched with this design.

This includes the Galaxy S24 series phones. The Galaxy S24 Ultra (Review) is the most powerful Galaxy phone today, and it comes with a ton of AI features. The Galaxy S24+ (Review) is also an extremely powerful device, and it comes with most of the AI features that come with the Ultra.

Rumored specs

For the Galaxy A55’s specs, they’re still rumored. However, they seem pretty accurate. They come from @stufflistings on X. According to the rumor, the Galaxy A55 will come with a 50-megapixel main camera accompanied by a 12-pixel camera and a 5-megapixel camera. Up front, we’re looking at a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

For the internals, we only have one spec, and that’s the fact that it could have up to 12GB of RAM. That’s very significant for a mid-range device. That’s more than the RAM in the base Galaxy S24.

One differentiator in terms of the design will be the new “Key Island”. This is a raised section of the frame that will house the power and volume buttons. It doesn’t really serve much of a purpose other than making the phone look slightly different.

Other than that, we see that this phone will have a flat frame, which is reminiscent of the Galaxy S24 phones. The frames on the Galaxy S23 phones were slightly rounded. However, the flat frame may make the Galaxy A55 feel a little bit more refined.
