Connectivity and Processor

Both the Galaxy A35 5G and A55 5G will come with 5G network support, making them among Samsung’s most affordable 5G smartphones yet. They will also feature Wi-Fi 6 connectivity for faster and more stable wireless speeds.

The Galaxy A35 5G is equipped with Samsung’s new Exynos 1380 system-on-chip built on a power-efficient 5nm fabrication process. This octa-core chip brings noticeable improvements to the CPU, GPU, and NPU compared to its predecessor.

The Galaxy A55 5G gets a slightly more powerful Exynos 1480 chip based on the 4nm process for better overall performance, especially in graphics and AI computation.

Storage and RAM

Samsung is discontinuing the 6GB RAM variant with the Galaxy A35 5G. It will instead ship with either 8GB RAM + 128GB storage or 8GB RAM + 256GB storage, the latter being a new option.

The Galaxy A55 5G ditches the 6GB RAM choice as well, going for 8GB/12GB RAM paired with 256GB internal storage.

Both phones will retain micro SD card support for storage expansion up to 1TB.

Battery and Charging

The Galaxy A35 5G and A55 5G are equipped with the same 5000 mAh battery pack as their predecessors. Charging speed remains capped at 25W.

While actual battery life can only be tested on the release units, no major improvements are expected considering the same battery specs are being used.

Design and Build Quality

The new A series models see a slight size increase over their predecessors. The Galaxy A35 5G measures 161.7 x 78.0 x 8.8 mm while the A55 5G comes in at 161.1 x 77.4 x 8.2 mm.

Weight has gone up by around 10 grams as well. The A35 5G weighs 209 grams and the A55 5G is 213 grams.

Samsung has opted for a glass-metal sandwich design on both phones. The front and back panels are made of scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass Victus+ material. However, the Galaxy A35 5G retains a plastic frame versus the metal frame on the pricier A55 5G.

The Galaxy A55 5G is also the first A series phone to introduce an eSIM slot for dual SIM functionality.

Display and Biometrics

The budget Galaxy A series phones are making the switch from LCD to higher quality Super AMOLED displays this year.

Both models flaunt a 6.6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling and animations. Peak brightness goes up to 1000 nits in regular usage and 1650 nits when viewing HDR content.

Instead of a waterdrop notch, the phones get a centered punch-hole cutout housing the front camera. The in-display optical fingerprint reader is retained for quick biometric authentication.

Cameras

The Galaxy A35 5G has a familiar triple camera array headlined by a new 50MP primary sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) for reducing shake and blur. It is joined by an 8MP ultrawide shooter and 5MP macro camera.

Super HDR video recording is now supported as well for richer colors and clearer details when capturing videos.

Selfies are handled by a 13MP front-facing camera, the same as last year.

The Galaxy A55 5G takes imaging up a notch with a 12MP ultrawide camera paired with the 50MP OIS main camera and 5MP macro snapper.

Its 32MP selfie camera should capture sharper and more detailed self-portraits. Super HDR is also available for videos.

Software and Special Features

The phones ship with Samsung’s One UI skin running atop Android 13. This brings useful additions like an always-on display, Samsung Health, Bixby assistant, Samsung Pay, etc.

Knox security is bolstered through the Knox Vault feature for protecting sensitive data such as passwords, biometrics, and Blockchain keys.

The Galaxy A55 5G additionally offers a Samsung Wallet for storing digital copies of your credit cards, tickets, vaccination certificates, and so on in one place.

India Launch Timeline

Reliable leaksters have confirmed that Samsung will host a launch event for the Galaxy A35 5G and Galaxy A55 5G in India on March 11. They will go on sale starting March 18 via online and offline channels.

Expected Pricing

Pricing details haven’t been officially revealed yet but rumors hint at the following price tags:

Samsung Galaxy A35 5G:

  • 8GB + 128GB: ₹25,000
  • 8GB + 256GB: ₹27,000

Samsung Galaxy A55 5G:

  • 8GB + 256GB: ₹32,000
  • 12GB + 256GB: ₹35,000

These would make them among the most affordable 5G ready phones in Samsung’s lineup. The upgraded Super AMOLED screens, better chipsets and new camera tech could give them an edge over Chinese rivals like Xiaomi, Realme, and Poco.

Verdict

The Galaxy A35 5G and A55 5G bring noticeable improvements in the display, performance, charging, and camera departments while retaining the solid battery life of their predecessors. The software is up-to-date as well with Android 13 out of the box.

If the rumored price tags are accurate, the Galaxy A55 5G in particular seems like an appealing upper mid-range package with its versatile cameras, vibrant 120Hz AMOLED screen, capable mid-range processor, and future-ready 5G connectivity.

Stay tuned for full reviews of the Samsung Galaxy A35 5G and A55 5G when they become officially available in India starting March 18th.
