Samsung is set to expand its Galaxy A-series with two new mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy A55 and A35. The Galaxy A35 recently made an appearance at South Korea’s Radio Research Agency (RRA), giving us a first glimpse of its design.
The live photo of the Galaxy A35 shows a phone with a flat back and individual camera cutouts, similar to recent Samsung models. It also features a flat frame with the signature “Key Island” design around the buttons.
Insights on Design
Although the RRA listing doesn’t provide much more information, previous leaks and rumors have already given us insights into the Galaxy A35’s design. Leaked renders suggest that the front of the phone will have a modern punch-hole cutout for the selfie cameras. The device is also expected to sport a 6.6-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy A35 will be available in icy blue, lilac, and navy blue color options.
Performance and Specifications
The Galaxy A35 has also appeared in the Geekbench benchmark listing, revealing that it will be equipped with the Exynos 1380 chip. This octa-core processor features four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four Cortex-A78 cores running at 2.4GHz. It is paired with a Mali-G68 MP5 GPU for graphical tasks and has an AI Engine with 4.9TOPS power.
The benchmark listing also confirms that the Galaxy A35 will have at least 6GB of RAM and will run on Android 14 with Samsung’s One UI 6 interface. However, it is unclear whether it will come with the latest One UI 6.1 version. The benchmark scores suggest decent performance and confirm 5G connectivity.
What to Expect
While an official launch date is still unknown, these leaks provide a clear picture of what to expect from the upcoming Galaxy A35. The device offers a familiar design, decent mid-range specifications, and 5G connectivity. It is hoped that Samsung will launch it at a competitive price to make it an attractive option for users.
