Samsung fans, brace yourselves! The latest scoop from GalaxyClub has dished out some juicy tidbits about the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy A55, setting the stage for future speculations. Given Samsung's appetite for consistency, we're eyeing a March 2024 debut for the A55 if all goes according to plan.

Trending now is the word that Samsung's in-house developers are rigorously testing the A55, equipped with an intriguing SoC labeled S5E8845. Connecting the dots, the tech moguls are speculating this could be the unreleased Exynos 1480 chip. 

Skimming through the history will tell you that its siblings, the Exynos 1380 and 1280, sport the model numbers S5E8835 and S5E8825, and these SoCs breathe life into the Galaxy A54 and A53. The oncoming S5E8845 powering the Samsung new 5G model makes perfect sense.

But here's the kicker: Rumor has it that the Exynos 1480 SoC might flex an AMD GPU! Yup, you read that right. The tech media is abuzz with whispers of Samsung and AMD joining forces to up the game in graphics, focusing on sharper image processing and advanced AI functionalities. 

However, until the official word drops, this remains a folklore. Shifting the focus to optics, the A55 seems to favor safe play. Leaked details suggest it'll feature the same tried-and-tested 50MP primary shooter as its predecessor. Since the A55 belongs to a mid-range breed, we expect minimal improvements in terms of hardware.

For context, the A54 backs a 6.4-inch AMOLED with FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 1000nits brightness. It has a solid 50MP camera assisted by a 12MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro shooter. The device holds an under-screen fingerprint ID, a 5000mAh cell, and up to 25W Power delivery.
