Samsung Releases a New Mid-Range Smartphone That Comes With Perks For Pre-Orders and Four Android OS Updates

Within less than a year following the launch of its predecessor, Samsung has added the Galaxy A35 5G to its lineup of Galaxy A smartphones. In order to put things in perspective, the more potent Galaxy A55 5G and the Galaxy A35 5G launched simultaneously. Samsung did not reject the Galaxy A34 5G from last year; instead, it improved upon it with the Galaxy A35 5G, as was projected.

Because of this, the latter sports a 6.6-inch-wide Super AMOLED display. In addition, the display offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz and outputs at 1080p, which Samsung refers to as FHD+. Regretfully, Samsung has yet to confirm any further display-related information, such as whether the Galaxy A35 5G would be able to achieve a peak brightness of 1,000 nits (HBM) or higher than its predecessor. The Exynos 1380 from the Galaxy A54 5G is said to be the chipset powering the device, although the manufacturer makes no mention of it.

Moreover, the 13 MP front-facing, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle, and 5 MP macro cameras found on the Galaxy A3 smartphone from last year are still present. Nevertheless, it seems that Samsung has adopted the f/1.8, optically stabilized (OIS) 50 MP primary camera from the Galaxy A54 5G.

As per Samsung, the entire hardware is housed in a casing measuring 161.7 x 78 x 8.2 mm and weighs 209 g, partly due to the device’s 5,000 mAh battery.

To put this in perspective, starting with Android 14, the Galaxy A35 5G is expected to receive four Android OS updates out of the box. In addition, until early 2029, the device will be eligible for a fifth year of Android security patch upgrades. For €379, the Galaxy A35 5G with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage will launch in the Eurozone.

On the other hand, the gadget will retail for €449, which is only €30 more expensive than the Galaxy A55 5G, when equipped with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Having said that, Samsung is offering a free set of Galaxy Buds FE earphones with the pre-order deal for the 256 GB model of the Galaxy A35 5G, which is not available when buying the less expensive Galaxy A55 5G.
