Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy A35 specifications leak

Back in January, we shared the Samsung Galaxy A35 renders with you, exclusively. Now we’re partnering with @OnLeaks to do the same with the Galaxy A35 specifications. This is one of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A series devices, and it’s expected to launch alongside the Galaxy A55.

Here are the Samsung Galaxy A35 specifications, in detail

The Galaxy A35 will be inferior to the Galaxy A55, it will be fueled by the Samsung Exynos 1380 processor. In addition to that, you’ll be able to choose between 6GB and 8GB of RAM. Those two RAM models will come with 128GB and 256GB of internal storage, respectively. The good news is, you’ll be able to expand the phone’s storage. The Galaxy A35 will accept a microSD card with up to 1TB of storage.

On the front of the phone, you’ll find a 6.6-inch fullHD+ (2380 x 1080) Super AMOLED display. Its refresh rate will be 120Hz, so double what the iPhone 15 offers, despite the fact this phone will be a fraction of the price. It’s always nice to see 120Hz panels on budget phones. That display will be flat, by the way.

Moving onto the battery. The Galaxy A35 will include a 5,000mAh battery and supports 25W wired charging. That seems to be a solid battery life considering the display and SoC on the phone.

The phone will include three cameras on the back

The Galaxy A35 will feature three cameras on the back and a single one on the front. A 50-megapixel main camera (f/1.8 aperture) will be backed by an 8-megapixel ultrawide unit (f/2.2 aperture). The third camera on the back will be a 5-megapixel macro (f/2.4 aperture) unit.

The phone will have a centered display camera hole on the front, and a 13-megapixel unit (f/2.2 aperture) in there. This handset will be IP67 certified for water and dust resistance as well.

We still don’t have the information about the Android version that’ll come pre-installed, but it’ll almost certainly be Android 14 with One UI 6.1 on top of it. It’s hard to imagine Samsung launching the Galaxy A35 with Android 13 at this point in time.

it’s coming in four colors, and the pricing will start at €389

If you’re wondering about its measurements, we have that info too. The Samsung Galaxy A35 will measure 161.7 x 78 x 8.2mm, while it will weigh 209 grams.

The device comes in four ‘Awesome’ color variants. Those colors are Awesome Ice Blue, Awesome Lemon, Awesome Lilac, and Awesome Navy. The 6GB RAM model will start at €389 in Europe, while the 8GB RAM variant will start at €459. Pricing could also vary by around €20 depending on the EU country.

What about its design?

The Samsung Galaxy A35 will feature be flat all around. It will feature a flat display and a flat backplate. On top of that, its frame will be flat all around. The corners of the phone will be rounded, though.

The only thing that will break the flatness of its backplate are the phone’s cameras. It will include three of them, as already mentioned, and they will be located in the top-left corner of the phone’s back. Those cameras will be vertically aligned. Each one of them will protrude from the backplate on their own, there won’t be a dedicated camera island or anything like that.

An LED flash will sit between the first and second cameras, but a bit to the side, closer to the center, as you can see in the image above. Samsung’s logo will be placed in its usual place, centered towards the bottom of the backside. We’re still not sure if Samsung will use plastic or glass on the back of the phone, but we’re hoping for glass.

The frame around the phone will be flat, as already mentioned, but it will also curve a bit towards the edges. Why? Well, for comfort. The power/lock button and volume up and down keys will also sit on the right-hand side. The power/lock button will be located below the volume rocker buttons.

When will the Samsung Galaxy A35 launch?

What we know now is that the Galaxy A35 will launch alongside the Galaxy A55. These will be the company’s new budget/mid-range Galaxy A phones for 2024. What we do not know is when exactly will they arrive. Considering how much detail already surfaced, we cannot imagine the launch being far off at this point.

Let’s try and guess, shall we? The Samsung Galaxy A34 and Galaxy A54 arrived back in mid-March last year. If we had to guess, we’d say that the same will happen with the Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55, but this year. A mid-March launch timeframe is quite probable, though Samsung could move it a week or two. Let’s wait and see.
