Apple and its devices like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S are regarded as desirable phones. Moreover, other smartphone makers look up to iPhone and the design of their flagship devices. Similarly, Samsung, which is said to be the archrival of Apple, has released a new smartphone named Galaxy C5 in China. Its design is similar to Apple’s device.
Samsung Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 have a slim design and carry several similar features of the iPhone. However, it seems that fans will have to wait for a little longer before they reach Australia.
Galaxy C7 is pricier than Galaxy C5, but both devices have a fingerprint sensor. They have a metal shell with antenna bands, along with a camera module located centrally. If this wasn’t enough, the South Korean company also unleashed color finishes generally seen in Apple products. These include gold and rose colors, notes News.com.
