Galaxy A35 and A55 gain more certifications ahead of launch

AH Samsung Galaxy A55 2024 exclusive leak featured

Samsung is rapidly completing all the formalities before bringing the Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55 to the market. Over the past few weeks, the devices have picked up several regulatory certifications around the world. They have now been spotted on the Bluetooth SIG and GCF (Global Certification Forum) websites too, hinting at a nearing launch.

Bluetooth SIG and GCF certify Samsung’s Galaxy A35 and A55

The GCF certified the Galaxy A35 with the model numbers SM-A356E and SM-A356E/DS. The Galaxy A55 picked up the same certification with the model numbers A556B/DS, SM-A556E/DS, and SM-A556E. All of these are global versions of the phones, with “DS” at the end indicating dual-SIM variants. Samsung will also release the duo in the US. It has already received the FCC certification for the former. The latter should follow soon.

Apart from the model numbers, the listings on the GCF website don’t reveal anything else about the Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55. The Bluetooth SIG certification, meanwhile, confirms support for Bluetooth V5.3 on both models. Note that the latter picked up the Bluetooth certification last week. The former has also now gained it, including the global, US, Canadian, and Chinese versions.

All of these developments hint at a nearing launch of the two mid-range smartphones. When we say nearing, we don’t mean it is happening within a week or two. Samsung likely still has a lot of things to do before it unveils the Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55. Rumors suggest the devices will go official in April or the earliest in March. You can expect more leaks, rumors, and certifications for the phones in the coming months.

Both devices will bring a few notable upgrades

A few weeks ago, we exclusively leaked the official renders of the Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55, revealing their design. The two phones look identical but have a key differentiating factor on their frame. The latter has antenna lines, while the former doesn’t. This means Samsung will upgrade the Galaxy A55 to a metallic frame while the other model will get a plastic frame.

This doesn’t mean the Galaxy A35 won’t improve upon the Galaxy A34. Most notably, it is rumored to feature a 50MP primary rear camera, which should be a much newer sensor than the 2023 model’s 48MP unit. Both new devices should also bring a few more iterative upgrades, including a newer processor and the latest version of One UI based on Android 14. Stay tuned for the official launch of the phones.
