Where to buy the Samsung Galaxy A55 in the UK

Visually speaking, the Galaxy A55 has an iconic Samsung look, with its candy bar frame and trio of floating cameras definitely reminiscent of last year’s Galaxy A54. However, the Galaxy A55 makes itself unique as the first Galaxy A series to get a metal and glass build, and its new Exynos 1480 chipset gives it that extra processing power to set it apart from the rest of the A series lineup. The two new models, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35, were announced in a Samsung Newsroom press release on the 11th of March, and arrive in the UK on the 20th of March, 2024.

What’s more, the Galaxy A55 will get a range of the coveted Galaxy AI features that came to the Galaxy S24, so you can expect better photography post-processing and improved AI functionality. Essentially, with the Galaxy A55, Samsung is making an immersive smartphone experience even more accessible. This year, the model comes in four cool-toned colorways, Awesome Iceblue, Awesome Navy, Awesome Lilac, and Awesome Lemon.
