A M55 rebrand?

While the phone appears to be a new entry, it is basically a rebrand of the Samsung Galaxy M55 — which is making its way to Nepal soon. This does not come as a surprise since the Samsung entries with the same numbering are almost similar to each other. They have very minor aspects separating them from each other.

Design and Display

The Samsung Galaxy C55 5G comes in a leather back with stitches near both sides of the phone. Available in two colorways: Black and Orange, it shares an identical look to the M55 5G. So, you get a curved middle frame and a hole-punch display upfront. Talking of which, it’s a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and 1000nits of peak brightness.
