Samsung Galaxy M55 5G identified with Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset paired with Android 14 and 8 GB RAM
It seems that Samsung is developing another mid-range Galaxy smartphone, albeit not another Galaxy A series model. For context, various details about the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy A25 have surfaced online recently, with the former rumoured to be arriving before the company's flagship Galaxy S24 series. Now, the likes of MySmartPrice have discovered a Geekbench listing for 'SM-M556B', an unreleased model that appears to fall under the Galaxy M series.
Specifically, SM-M556B follows directly on from SM-M546B, a model number that Samsung assigned to the Galaxy M54. Thus, SM-M556B should be the Galaxy M55, which Samsung pre-loads with Android 14. While Geekbench does not confirm as much, we would expect Samsung to advertise the Galaxy M55 with One UI 6 and not Android 14 directly.
Additionally, Geekbench identifies the SM-M556B as utilising 'ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 2 part 3399 revision 0', an identifier for the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Theoretically an upgrade from the Exynos 1380 that powers the Galaxy M54, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 only outperformed its Exynos counterpart by about 2% in our benchmarks. The switch from Exynos to Snapdragon could help the Galaxy M55 5G run more efficiently than its predecessor because of its narrower 4 nm manufacturing process. However, that much remains to be seen, as does whether Samsung will offer the Galaxy M55 5G with more than the 8 GB of RAM shown below.
