The smartphone is the successor to the last year’s Galaxy C5 and bears similarities with Galaxy C7 Pro in terms of design. The smartphone flaunts an all-metal unibody design, with the rear camera placed in the center, along with the LED flash on the right. The Samsung logo is located just below the camera lens. The company has also opted for an interesting antenna design, which includes a set of three lines running along the top and bottom of the smartphone. Up front, there is a home button which also doubles as a fingerprint sensor. The overall look and design are in line with what we had seen in leaks before.
