Samsung Galaxy C5 leaks reveal a new metal, mid-range smartphone

New, 4 comments

Samsung makes a lot of phones for a lot of different markets, and photos of an interesting new one just leaked. It's believed to be called the Galaxy C5, and after a few weeks of details popping up, NowhereElse has acquired a series of photos. The pictures confirm a) that the C5 exists, b) that it's called the C5, and c) that it'll (at least appear to) have a metal body. It's not the most exciting phone design, but it isn't ugly either. Style-wise, it falls somewhere between an iPhone 6 and an HTC A9.

The phone is believed to be headed for China, which makes sense. Inexpensive, mid-range devices are a growing market there that Samsung has big potential to tap into. This phone is expected to include a 5.2-inch, 1080p display, a Snapdragon 617 processor, and 4GB of RAM, according to SamMobile. That makes it distinctly mid-range, but what'll matter most is the price and whether that gives people reason to complain about the level of specs Smasung is offering.
