While it is sad news to residents of the United States that the Galaxy A55 will not be making it to their shores, the good news is that the Samsung Galaxy A35, which shares many features with the A55, will.

Samsung has officially confirmed that the successor to the popular Galaxy A34 will be available in the US. You can expect to buy it unlocked from the Samsung USA website and independent retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, as well as from carriers.

Samsung Galaxy A35 unlocked smartphone


The Samsung Galaxy A35 sports a 6.6-inch 1080×2340 pixel Super AMOLED panel with 120 Hz refresh rate. A 13MP selfie camera is embedded in the centered punch hole in the display. There is also a sheet of Gorilla Glass Victus protecting the display.

There is another sheet of Gorilla Glass protection on the rear panel, but Samsung does not specify which. Having a glass back is a nice touch and upgrade for the A35, though, as it makes the phone look and feel more premium.

Still talking about protection, the Samsung Galaxy A35 has an official IP67 dust/water resistant rating. In plain English, this means that it can be submerged in water for up to depths of 1 meter for 30 minutes.

The rear camera configuration includes a 50MP main shooter with OIS, a 8MP fixed-focus ultrawide camera and a 5MP macro camera.

On the inside and running the show is an Exynos 1380 chipset. If you are wondering what the implications of that in terms of performance is, this is the same chipset in 2023’s Samsung Galaxy A54, and it has been proven to be a decent performer. It is now available in the A35 at a lower price point. That is a good thing.

The device comes in options of 6 GB and 8 GB RAM, as well as 128 GB and 256 GB storage. The second SIM slot is shared, so you can pop in a microSD card instead of a second SIM card.

5000mAh battery capacity has become something of a standard among mid-range smartphones these days, and so, that is what we have in the Galaxy A35. For charging, it is crippled with Samsung’s 25W fast charging. There are more affordable phones with 30W and 33W fast charging from the competition.

Software and Updates

Samsung Galaxy A35 ships with OneUI 6.1 based on Android 14, which is quite up-to-date. It is also eligible for 4 years of major OS updates and 5 years of security patches, which is as good as you will get with any smartphone in this price range.


For the first time ever, Samsung is including its Knox Vault security service in an A series smartphone. This makes the Samsung Galaxy A35 a more secure device than the average smartphone.
