Samsung’s Galaxy A55 is definitely in the development pipeline and already inching towards a release. As far as we know the phone will use the Exynos S5E8845 chipset, which is believed to be the Exynos 1480, since the Exynos 1380 and 1280 carry model numbers S5E8835 and S5E8825 and power the Galaxy A54 and A53, respectively. In an interesting new development, a GeekBench scorecard was spotted online for the chipset in question, likely working on a test platform of some sort.
It scored 1,180 points in the single-core CPU performance test and 3,536 points in the multi-core CPU performance test. That’s notably better than the Galaxy A54 scores of 1,108 points and 2,797, respectively.
As per previous rumors, the Exynos 1480 is an octa-core chipset with four high-powered CPU cores, clocked at up to 2.75GHz and another four efficiency ones working at up to 2.05GHz. The potentially more interesting bit is that the chipset is said to use an AMD RDNA2-based Xclipse 530 GPU. It should be significantly more powerful than the Malu GPUs in previous Exynos chips and could potentially even offer raytracing in games. Though, that part is speculation at this point.
As for the rest of the upcoming Galaxy A55, we recently got a bunch of renders of the device that reveal a familiar design, though one with some refinements. Notably, flat sides on what appears to be a metal middle frame. As far as we currently know, the Galaxy A55 will have a 6.5-inch, FullHD+, 120Hz OLED display, also – a 50MP main camera and 25W charging.
