Samsung is preparing for the release of its upcoming Galaxy A55 5G smartphone, as indicated by various certification listings. Recently, the device appeared in the FCC database, unveiling some of its key features.
FCC Certification Details
The FCC certification confirms that the smartphone, with model number SM-A556E/DS, will support dual SIM slots and 25W fast charging. The supported charging adapter carries the model number EP-TA800.
These charging details align with what was confirmed in the 3C certification. However, similar to recent Samsung phones, the 3C certification suggests that the Galaxy A55 5G may not include a charger in the box.
Speculations on Specifications
Unfortunately, the FCC listing does not provide any further details about the phone’s specifications, such as its processor, display, or camera setup. However, based on earlier reports, it is expected to be powered by the Exynos 1480 chipset.
The Galaxy A55 has also been spotted on Geekbench with the same chip. The Exynos 1480 is believed to have four performance cores clocked at 2.75GHz each and four efficiency cores clocked at 2.05GHz. The chipset will also feature an Xclipse 530 GPU.
The Geekbench listing also suggests that the chipset will be paired with up to 8GB of RAM. Additionally, it is expected to run Android 14 out of the box.
Design and Color Options
Leaked official-looking renders of the Galaxy A55 show no significant design changes compared to its predecessor. It retains vertically stacked cameras on the back, flat edges on the sides, and a punch-hole display on the front. The device is rumored to be available in Awesome Ice blue, Awesome Lilac, and Awesome Navy color options.
