Samsung has been on a roll with new phone releases in 2024. At the end of January, Samsung released the flagship Galaxy S24 lineup. It’s fantastic, but not everyone can afford the latest and greatest flagship. Thankfully, Samsung also makes budget-friendly alternatives, and that’s the appeal of the new Galaxy A55.

If you’re new to Android phones, Samsung has the Galaxy S series and the A series. While the Galaxy S range is made for high performance and advanced technological features, the A series is more about affordability while having some of the new features.

Samsung Galaxy A55 vs. A54: design and display

Typically, there aren’t big changes in terms of what Samsung’s Galaxy A phones look like year to year. However, this one is different.

The Galaxy A55 is actually slightly larger than its predecessor, with its 6.6-inch display. For comparison, the A54 had a 6.4-inch display. The A55 is also slightly heavier, at 213 grams, versus the 202-gram weight of the A54.

The weight difference is partly due to the materials used for each phone. The old Galaxy A54 had a plastic frame, while the new Galaxy A55 switched over to a metal frame. Because of this, the A55 should feel a bit more “premium” than its predecessor.

This bump slightly protrudes from the right edge of the phone and houses the volume and power buttons. This is also an easy way to differentiate the A55 from the flagship S24 devices.

While the Samsung Galaxy A55 has the same IP67 certification as the Galaxy A54, the front glass is now reinforced with Gorilla Glass Victus instead of Gorilla Glass 5. This should mean a little more durability against drops and scratches.

Samsung has also spruced up the color options available for the A55 this year, as it comes in four vibrant colors: Awesome Blue, Awesome Black, Awesome Pink, and Awesome Yellow. The A54 comes in four colors as well, including Awesome Graphite, Awesome White, Awesome Violet, and Awesome Lime.

Despite the different sizes, the displays are both Super AMOLED with a 120Hz refresh rate and reach peak brightness of 1,000 nits. The A55 also has slightly thinner bezels around the display, and Samsung added a new feature called Vision Booster. This is supposed to make the screen look clearer and brighter in a variety of
