Leaked Galaxy C5 pictures confirm metal body

We reported two weeks ago that Samsung had started firmware development for the Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000). This is going to be a new series of smartphones from Samsung with at least two models with different display sizes and we’ve already reported before that both will have thin metallic bodies. Pictures of the Galaxy C5 have leaked online today revealing that it does indeed come with a metal body.

It’s good that Samsung has gone for a metal body in a mid-range smartphone but we have to address the elephant in the room. It looks a lot like some of HTC’s recent smartphones from the back, the design happens to be quite similar and while there’s nothing wrong about that I think many would have preferred if Samsung went a different way with the design. As far as the specifications go, the Galaxy C5 is likely to feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor with 4GB RAM, and we also see what appears to be a dual tone LED flash on the back. It’s going to come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. China is going to be the launch market for the new Samsung Galaxy C series handsets and it’s unclear if and when these smartphones will be released in other markets.

Reminds me of M9. But it’d be great if S8 was made of metal. I think it’s better than glass for the back of the phone.

A metal body is what they need to go with on their flagships. Drop tests of the S6’s, S7’s and Note 5’s have consistently shown, that the glass backs on these phones are very weak. Almost always the first to crack. And they crack quickly from only a few foot drop. Plus, the fingerprints and it slippery. Also, even though Sammy says it’s gorilla glass 4 on the back, scratch tests have shown the back is most definitely weaker in terms of scratch protection as well. It is certainly not the same type of glass on the back, than is… Read more »

I’m pretty sure Samsung Pay, Wireless Charging and possibly NFC won’t work if Samsung goes all Metal. Unless all the corresponding antenna bands will all be shown.
