The Samsung Galaxy A55 could be a great mid-range gaming smartphone


If you’re looking for a smartphone to game on that won’t break the bank, then the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A55 could be a phone you might want to hold out for, at least if the benchmarks are accurate.

This is according to a report from who spotted the benchmarks for the device on Geekbench. Based on the benchmarks, the Galaxy A55 appears to be powered by the Exynos 1480 and will utilize the Xclipse 530 GPU which is based on AMD’s RDNA architecture, thanks to the partnership Samsung and AMD formed a few years ago.

This means that in terms of gaming, the Galaxy A55 could see a significant boost over its predecessors. Unfortunately, the benchmarks don’t really tell us how well the phone will perform at gaming, so this is just based on what we know and what we’ve seen from Samsung’s other Xclipse GPUs in the past.

There is also no mention of when the Galaxy A55 will launch. Its predecessor, the Galaxy A54, was announced earlier this year in March. This means that when the Galaxy A55 launches, it will most likely be around the same time next year. As for pricing, the Galaxy A54 was priced at $450, so it’s safe to assume that the Galaxy A55 should also end up being priced roughly around that range as well.
