Samsung will launch its next affordable smartphone, the Galaxy A55, most likely in the first quarter of 2024. This mid-ranger will be using Samsung’s own brand new chipset, the Exynos 1480 CPU. Several specifications of the gadget surfaced online, and the Geekbench listing revealed that the model will have a memory storage of 8 GB. As reported earlier, the Exynos 1480 will include an AMD GPU, so this will be the first affordable processor to incorporate this feature.
Built on the same AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture as the Exynos 2200 from the previous year, however, the Exynos 1480 has an Xclipse 530 GPU. The newer version will enhance the graphics performance compared to the Exynos 1380. Benchmark results for CPU performance indicate that users of Exynos 1480 won’t see much of an improvement over Exynos 1380, but there is a progressive development. It was reported that there will be 8GB of RAM, but other memory options will also be available, such as 4GB and 6GB.
The Galaxy A55 will be getting a newer Android experience as it will be pre-installed with Android 14-based One UI 6.1. According to the many accessible Geekbench listings, the Exynos 1480 combines four performance CPU cores clocked at 2.75 GHz and four efficiency CPU cores limited to 2.05 GHz. Furthermore, the Exynos 1480 is verified by Geekbench to be powered by the Xclipse 530, a GPU that Samsung is rumored to have built around AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture.
The model will most likely hit the screens after the time period of March, as the South Korean giant will not launch an affordable one during the period when its most anticipated flagship, the Galaxy S24 series, is being released and remains at the top of the town.
