There are a number of devices Samsung plans to launch next year. In the second or third week of January, the Galaxy S24 series is expected to be released. The Galaxy A35 and Galaxy A55 are likely to follow.

It is expected that both the A35 and A55 will be powered by the new Exynos 1480 chipset. Geekbench now provides insights into the performance of the chipset.

According to Geekbench, the Exynos 1480 scored 1180 points in the single-core CPU performance test and 3,536 points in the multi-core CPU performance test.

Unsurprisingly, these scores far exceed those of the Exynos 1280 chip found in the Galaxy A54, which scored 1,108 points in the single-core test and 2,797 points in the multi-core test.

The Exynos 1480 utilizes the S5E8845 chipset, which was previously known as the Exynos 1480. This SoC features an octa-core CPU architecture with four high-performance CPU cores clocked at 2.75GHz and four power-efficient CPU cores clocked at 2.05GHz.

Furthermore, the chipset is equipped with the Xclipse 530 GPU, which is expected to be significantly more powerful than the Mali GPUs that were used in earlier Exynos chips. It remains unclear whether this mid-tier GPU supports ray tracing.

The Galaxy A55 also resembles the Galaxy A35 and A15 in terms of design and form factor, as shown by leaked renders published a few days ago.
