As evidenced by a Geekbench scorecard, the Galaxy A55 is expected to run the new Exynos 1480. The Galaxy A35, its sibling, will instead use the Exynos 1380 chip, as evidenced by Geekbench.

As of the time of this writing, the Samsung Galaxy A35 (SM-A356E) was equipped with 8 GB of RAM and Android 14. Using Samsung’s 5nm EUV technology, the 1380 chip contains four Cortex-A78 (2.4GHz) cores and four A55 (2.0GHz) cores, along with an ARM Mali-G68 GPU.

Only a few phones used the Exynos 1380, including the Galaxy A54, F54, and M54, which showed significant improvement in multicore performance over the Exynos 1280. There are no surprises here. The 1280 uses the same CPU cores at the same frequencies, but in a 2+6 configuration instead of a 4+4 configuration.

Both chips use the Mali-G68 GPU, but the 1380 is faster. With an AMD Xclipse 530 GPU, the Galaxy A55 should beat its A35 sibling in the GPU battle. It’s important to note that last year’s Galaxy A34 used the same A78/A55 CPU and Mali-G68 GPU as this year’s Galaxy A34.

We have already seen leaks and live images of the Galaxy A35. A repairability score leaked, giving the A35 a slightly better score than the A34.
