Samsung finally announced the India release date and price range of the Galaxy F55 5G on Thursday (May 9). The South Korean smartphone brand has been rolling out the new phone for a while now. It will be available for purchase via Flipkart in two color variants. The Galaxy F55 5G is believed to be a rebranded Galaxy C55 that was launched in China last month. It is expected to run on the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC and may pack a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wired support for fast charging.

The Samsung Galaxy F55 5G is scheduled to be officially launched in India on May 17 at 12:00 PM IST. It is confirmed to be priced below Rs. 30,000 in the country. The handset will go on sale via Flipkart, and select stores.

Flipkart has created a special landing page on its website to tease the arrival of the new Galaxy F series smartphone. It has been confirmed to come in Apricot Crush and Raisin Black colors with a vegan leather finish.

A recent leak revealed that the Galaxy F55 will be priced at Rs. 26,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version. The 8GB RAM + 256GB storage model is said to be priced at Rs. 29,999, while the 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant is expected to cost Rs. 32,999.

As mentioned, the Galaxy F55 5G could debut as a rebranded version of the Galaxy C55. The latter was launched in China in April with a starting price of CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 23,000).

The Galaxy F55 5G could have similar specs to the Galaxy C55 if the former is indeed a rebranded model. The Galaxy C55 features a 6.7-inch Full-HD+ (1080×2400 pixels) Super AMOLED Plus display with a 120Hz refresh rate and runs on a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. It has a triple rear camera led by a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 50-megapixel selfie shooter and packs a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wired fast charging.
