First look at the Cseries with leaked Symbian-running Nokia C5

04 February, 2010

Symbian is going to push out S40 out of all but the most basic phones - the newly leaked Nokia C5 is good evidence of that. With a modest price tag this handset would steer many buyers in Symbian direction.

The Nokia C5 is also the first phone of the Cseries we've seen yet - remember back in July last year when Nokia trademarked Xseries and Cseries? With the Nokia X3 and the Nokia X6 we saw the Xseries - the successors of the XpressMusic lineup - and now it's clear that the Cseries takes over where the "classic" phones left off.

First look at the Nokia C5

Here are the leaked specs for the Nokia C5 - it's powered by the non-touch Symbian S60 3rd edition FP2, the display is 2.2" QVGA, and the phone sports a 3.2MP camera with autofocus and LED flash, GPS receiver with A-GPS, a microSD card slot to expand the 50MB of built-in memory.

The Nokia C5 is pushing Symbian into S40 territory

The phone is 3G-enabled with HSDPA and HSUPA for fast Internet access. The Nokia C5 also offers a 3.5mm audio jack and FM radio. Basically, the C5 is like a 3G-capable Nokia 6303 classic with Symbian substituting the aging Series 40.

We'll probably see more of the Nokia C5 at the MWC in Barcelona.
