Galaxy A55 Crushes A54 in Multi-Core Performance with Exynos 1480


Samsung is working hard on its smartphone unit, with the majority of upcoming releases in the affordable A series. The long-awaited Galaxy A15, Galaxy A15 5G, and Galaxy A25 have finally launched, and now it’s time for the one that is left behind, the Galaxy A55. The mid-ranger will be using Samsung’s own Exynos chipset range, the Exynos 1480. The performance of the processor seems to be improved compared to its predecessor’s processor, the Exynos 1380. The processor powering up the Galaxy A55 appeared in the Geekbench database, and the recorded core points made it evident that it would be performing better than the prior one.
