Nikon D5500 is an F-mount DSLR announced by Nikon on January 5, 2015.  The successor of the  D5300 (there having been no D5400) it is the first Nikon DSLR to feature a  touchscreen.
The Nikon D5500 features other improvements over its predecessor Nikon D5300. With a newer
carbon-fiber composite body, the Nikon D5500 weighs 60 grams less with a significantly smaller size, has a touchscreen, Wi-Fi but lacks NFC ( near field communication) connectivity and GPS functionality.
A review lists the bigger buffer for
raw files and the longer battery life. 
The D5500 was superseded by the
D5600 in late 2016.
