Release in Other Markets
Though it is nearly a month since the unveiling of the two phones, the C5 and the C7, there is no sign of its releasing in other markets outside China. Earlier, it was stated that the devices are meant exclusively for fans of the company in China.
As other top end devices of Samsung, such as the J series and the A series have fared well in other markets, it seems that the C5 and the C7 will also soon make an entry into other markets. It is likely that the C5 and the C7 will be made available in other markets before the next big device of the company gets released, namely, the Note 7.
The two devices have also received clearance from the FCC, so they may also enter the markets in the US very soon.
