Samsung will launch a new premium mid-range smartphone in a month or two. The company is readying the Galaxy A55 as the successor to last year’s Galaxy A54. The handset has been subject to several leaks lately, including an exclusive leak from us showing its official renders in three colors. The device has also picked up a handful of regulatory certifications in recent weeks. It has just been certified by the FCC.
FCC certifies Galaxy A55 with Wi-Fi 6 and NFC
The FCC certified the Galaxy A55 with the model number SM-A556E, including its dual-SIM (DS) variant. It is the global version of the phone. Other model numbers for the phone include SM-A556B and SM-A556U. The documents uploaded to the agency’s website confirm that the device has slots for two physical SIM cards. We also expect a micro SD card slot for expandable storage.
This certification also confirms the presence of Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and NFC connectivity options on the Galaxy A55. Additionally, we can see that the FCC tested the device with a Samsung-made charging adapter bearing the model number EP-TA800. It has a maximum output power of 25W (9V/2.77A). That might be the charging speed of the phone, though the charger won’t come bundled in the box.
While we don’t have a confirmation yet, the Galaxy A55 could come in 128GB and 256GB storage variants, paired with 6GB/8GB RAM. Samsung’s in-house Exynos 1480 4nm chipset is expected to power the phone. It features four high-performance CPU cores clocked at 2.75GHz and four efficiency cores at 2.05GHz. The chipset incorporates a 5G modem and an Xclipse 530 custom GPU developed in collaboration with AMD.
The Galaxy A55 features a metallic frame and will ship with Android 14 out of the box. Unfortunately, not much else is known about it at the moment. It remains to be seen if Samsung keeps the display specs and the camera setup unchanged. The Galaxy A54 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, HDR10+ support, and 1000 nits of peak brightness. It has a 50MP primary rear camera with 4K video recording.
The Galaxy A35 may arrive alongside this phone
Rumors say Samsung will unveil the Galaxy A55 in April. The phone may be accompanied by the Galaxy A35, a slightly less premium device with a plastic frame. The latter has already picked up the FCC certification, as well as numerous other regulatory approvals around the world. As we revealed in an exclusive leak last month, the Galaxy A35 will look identical to its more powerful sibling.
