Right on schedule, the Galaxy A55 5G and Galaxy A35 5G are official. The successors to the most popular mid-range duo of 2023 have more in common than ever before.

For starters the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 are built around the same display – a 6.6-inch 1080x2340px Super AMOLED panel with 120 Hz refresh rate. They also share a 5,000mAh battery with 25W charging support and Samsung’s new Key Island design language. The frame is different though, with the Galaxy A55 using metal to the Galaxy A35’s plastic.

In a major upgrade over their predecessors, both phones have glass on the front and rear. The Galaxy A55 uses Gorilla Glass Victus+ likely on both front and rear, while the Galaxy A35 uses Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the front (no official word on the glass material on the rear). Gorilla Glass Victus+ is reportedly twice as scratch resistant as the Gorilla Glass 5 on the Galaxy A54 and A34.

The Galaxy A55 5G has the Exynos 1480 SoC with an AMD RDNA2-based Xclipse 530 GPU. You can have it paired with either 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM, and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. In contrast, the Galaxy A35 settles for the older Exynos 1380 that the Galaxy A54 used. It’s still a 5nm chipset, which suggests good efficiency and you get to pick between 6 GB or 8 GB RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB storage.

The Samsung Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 premiere Samsung Knox Vault on the A series. It’s a hardware-based secure execution environment that’s physically isolated from the processor and memory. It safeguards the most critical data on your device, like lock screen credentials – PIN codes, passwords, and patterns. It also protects the phone’s encryption keys.

Samsung’s standalone Knox is also installed, and you get the opt-in Auto Blocker, which can stop suspicious app installations, scan for malware, and block malicious commands.

Samsung promises 4 years of major OS updates and 5 years of security patches for both new Galaxy A series phones. That’s two years shorter than what the flagship series got, but still impressive for a mid-ranger.
