Information about one of Samsung’s most anticipated midranger, the Galaxy A55, is pretty scarce, so GalaxyClub’s most recent findings lay a good foundation for the upcoming rumors. After all, if Samsung sticks its schedule, the A55 should come around March next year. Sources close to the publication unearthed the handset’s SoC and main camera specs.
Reportedly, Samsung is carrying out an internal testing of the Galaxy A55 with a SoC with model number S5E8845, which we believe to be the still-unannounced Exynos 1480 chip. That’s because the Exynos 1380 and 1280 carry model numbers S5E8835 and S5E8825, respectively. And these chipsets power up the Galaxy A54 and A53.
The interesting bit about the upcoming Exynos 1480 SoC is that it may offer an AMD GPU. A rumor from earlier this month suggests that Samsung is working closely with AMD to deliver AMD graphics for improved performance in image processing and AI-related tasks. This report is still unconfirmed, though.
Lastly, the leak says there’s no change in the camera department and the Galaxy A55 is expected to arrive with the same 50MP main camera as its predecessor.
