Samsung Galaxy A55: Early leak points to Exynos 1480 usage and AMD based GPU
GalaxyClub has revealed initial information about the Galaxy A55, the presumed name of the successor to this year's Galaxy A54. As we discussed in our review, the Galaxy A54 relies upon the Exynos 1380, a 5 nm chipset that is also expected to power the Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus. Additionally, Samsung equips the Galaxy A54 with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and a 50 MP primary camera, among other hardware.
According to GalaxyClub, Samsung will persist with a 50 MP primary camera in its Galaxy A54 successor. While it remains unclear whether the Galaxy A55 will utilise the same 1/1.56-inch sensor in the Galaxy A54, GalaxyClub speculates that newer camera software will bring modest image quality improvements in its own right. Likewise, the website has not mentioned any camera hardware improvements in other areas, such as changed ultra-wide-angle, macro or front-facing sensors.
Samsung will continue to equip its Galaxy A5x handsets with Exynos chipsets too, having switched to the Exynos 1280 for the Galaxy A53. Purportedly, Samsung is developing the Galaxy A54 with the S5E8845, a codename for the Exynos 1480. GalaxyClub adds that the Exynos 1480 may feature an AMD-derived GPU as well, albeit without going into specifics. Currently, the Galaxy A55 is anticipated to arrive in Q1 2024, although only because of previous Galaxy A5x releases.
