Samsung Galaxy C55 launching in India as the Galaxy F55

Prasad, 29 April 2024

Samsung has revealed that it is launching the Galaxy F55 in India. A closer look at the device reveals this is just the Galaxy C55 that launched earlier this month in China but with a different name.

The company did not reveal a date for when the phone will go on sale other than saying it will be “early next month”. However, it did mention that it will be available through online retailer Flipkart and Samsung's own website, suggesting it will be an online-only launch like the company's other F-series devices.

Samsung is no stranger to rebranding or even selling two devices with only minor differences. Regardless of whether you want to call it the Galaxy F55 or the C55, the truth is that both devices are essentially the Galaxy M55, with the only difference being the presence of the vegan leather material for the back.

This means you are getting the same 6.7-inch 120Hz 1080p Super AMOLED+ display, Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip, up to 12GB memory, up to 256GB storage with microSDXC expansion, triple rear camera with 50MP main and 50MP front, and 5000mAh battery with 45W charging.

The F55 will be available in the same orange and black colors as the C55. More information on availability as it's revealed.
