Gizchina News of the week

The 3C certification has now shed light on the 25W fast charging capability. Even Samsung’s premium foldable phones don’t support the fastest 45W charging available for Galaxy smartphones.

Other Specifications: A Mixed Bag

The Galaxy A55 will retain the 5,000 mAh battery capacity of its predecessor. Suggesting that battery life should remain consistent. While no official details have been released regarding the camera specifications, it is likely that the Galaxy A55 will feature similar megapixel counts for the primary rear camera and the front-facing camera as the Galaxy A54.

The Highlight: Exynos 1480 Chipset with AMD-Powered GPU

The most notable upgrade in the Galaxy A55 is the integration of the Exynos 1480 chipset, which features an Xclipse 530 GPU developed in partnership with AMD. This marks the first time Samsung has incorporated an AMD-powered GPU into its mid-range smartphone lineup. The Xclipse 530 GPU will offer significantly better performance compared to the Mali GPU found in the Galaxy A54, providing a boost to gaming and graphics-intensive tasks.

Ray Tracing: A Possible Omission

Despite the performance improvements, the Xclipse 530 GPU may not support ray tracing, a demanding graphics rendering technique that even high-end desktop graphics cards struggle with. Samsung may have opted to omit ray tracing support to keep the chipset’s cost and power consumption in check.
