Following the Galaxy S24’s debut last month, Samsung is expected to turn the spotlight to its mid-range Galaxy smartphone lineup next, with the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35 taking centerstage. It seems a live image of the Galaxy A35 was spotted for the very first time, confirming notable changes with the exterior being particularly affected.
What’s different in the Samsung Galaxy A35’s design?
Pulled from a South Korean certification agency website (via SamMobile), the device’s back was pictured in a purple finish. While the design showed similarities with third-party renders we saw last year, it does confirm the new flat frame and a “Key Island” that houses the physical buttons on the right. Both first appeared on the Galaxy A25 and Galaxy A15 which were officially released last year.
In addition, the back notably retained the floating triple camera lens. It is possible the 48 MP primary camera from the Galaxy A34 (review) could be upgraded to a 50 MP shooter similar to the Galaxy A54 (review). It will not be a surprise if the rest of the camera sensors include an 8 MP ultra-wide and a middling 2 MP macro sensor.
Unfortunately, there are no hints on what the front looks like, but we can deduce from early renders that depicted a punch-hole cutout, finally replacing the notched display. The mid-range device is likely to retain the 6.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate of its predecessor as well.
Samsung Galaxy A35 internal specifications
Apart from that, the Galaxy A35 was discovered in a benchmark repository to be powered by an Exynos 1350 SoC mated to 6 GB of RAM. It could also get a decently sized 5,000 mAh battery capacity and a 25-watt charging rating. Samsung’s upcoming mid-range devices, including the Galaxy A55, should boot on Android 14 with the One UI 6 skin on top.
There are no details on the exact launch date for the Galaxy A35. However, we can refer to the Galaxy A34’s timetable which was announced in March last year as a precedent. Hence, the Galaxy A35 could be unveiled as early as this month or the next.
