We’ve already seen a ton of great products being released / showcased by various OEMs, and the fun is still not over. We’re here to take a look at two smartphones HiSense decided to show off to IFA attendees, the HiSense C1 and C20 (King Kong 2) devices, read on.

We’ve managed to get some hands-on time with both of these devices, and if you take a look below this article, you’ll notice two separate galleries showcasing both of them. The two phones sport interesting designs, and the edges are chamfered on both of them. They’re nothing groundbreaking as far as design goes, but the design is quite alright.
