Samsung will soon launch a new premium mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy A55. It will arrive in a few weeks as the company’s best value for money for 2024. We already know a lot of things about the device thanks to leaks and certifications. A major leak has now revealed its entire spec sheet, price, and launch date, leaving little to the imagination.

The biggest Galaxy A55 leak is here to bare it all

According to a WinFuture report, Samsung will equip the Galaxy A55 with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display featuring a 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 1,000 nits of peak brightness. The screen is marginally bigger than the Galaxy A54’s 6.4-inch panel. In fact, the device itself is taller and wider than its predecessor. It measures 161.1 x 77.4 x 8.2 mm in dimension and weighs 213 grams. The Galaxy A54 is 158.2 x 76.7 x 8.2 mm and 202 grams.

Despite a bigger profile, the Galaxy A55 packs the same 5,000mAh battery with 25W wired charging. Samsung is also keeping the camera setup unchanged from the 2023 model, including the front camera. We are talking about a 50MP primary shooter with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), a 12MP f/2.2 ultrawide camera, and a 5MP F/2.4 macro camera. On the front, the device has a 32MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture.

The Galaxy A55 can record 4K videos at 1080p resolution with its primary rear camera and selfie camera. Once again, no changes over its predecessor. The device also shares the IP67 dust and water resistance rating with the 2023 model. So what has changed? Well, on the outside, the design and build quality. Samsung has upgraded the phone to an aluminum frame from a plastic frame and introduced the Key Island design.

On the inside, the Galaxy A55 gets a newer Samsung Exynos 1480 chipset with AMD-powered custom GPU. The chipset is paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options. The device runs Android 14-based One UI 6.1 out of the box. Other known specs include NFC, Bluetooth 5.3, WiFi 6, under-display fingerprint scanner, microSD card slot, stereo speakers, and USB-C 2.0. The handset comes in Navy, Ice Blue, White, and Purple colors.

The Galaxy A55 launches in early March with a price cut

Samsung reportedly plans to launch the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 on March 11. The 6GB+128GB variant is said to cost €450, notably less than the Galaxy A54’s entry price of €490. For higher RAM and storage, you will have to shell out around €500, which is still a €50 price cut over the 2023 model. If the phone sees a similar drop in prices in the US, it would be an appealing product in the premium mid-range segment.
