Galaxy C5 Pie update and other news: Android 8.0 rolling out for C5 pro

Samsung Galaxy C5 update

On this page, we’re getting you software updates for the Samsung Galaxy C5 family with the changelog that specifies what changes a particular update comes packing, along with a download link to its firmware so that you can install it all by yourself.

Galaxy C5 Android 9 Pie update

Device Model Android 9 Pie Release Date
Galaxy C5 SM-C500 Not eligible
Galaxy C5 Pro SM-C5010 or SM-C5018 Eligible Q3 or Q4 2019

Whereas the C5 comes with Android Marshmallow preinstalled, the C5 Pro has Nougat out of the box. The former has already been updated to Nougat, but no word on if and when Oreo will arrive. As for the latter, an update to Oreo has already been released and while we expect a second major OS upgrade in the shape of Android 9 Pie, we cannot be sure whether this will materialize. This is because, as usual, Samsung hasn’t said a thing regarding the Pie prospects of this device.

Samsung One UI

Given that Samsung won’t be rolling out official Pie updates to any of the Galaxy C5 and C5 Pro handsets, there won’t be an official update to One UI. Since the global availability of both phones is scanty, we don’t expect unofficial updates to One UI either, but of course, we will update this space just in case anything new pops up.

Galaxy C5 Pro SM-C501 Available Released on 05 August 2018 for C5010; August 26 for C5018

Well, to be fair to C series, it’s pretty impressive, even though Samsung doesn’t like pushing timely updates to C5 and C5 Pro. We’re are hopeful that at some point, the C5 will get an update to Oreo, the second major OS upgrade, now that the OS is already available for the C5 Pro. But when exactly this will happen remains a mystery.
