Gallery isn't a "place", it's an app. You save pictures to the phone, restart it to rebuild the mediascan database - and the pictures will be displayed by Gallery. (The same with music player apps - you don't save music to them, you save music files to the phone, then the player apps look in the database for "sound" files.)

But on Android can't it be saved to the phone gallery or internal storage? Like on iPhone?
Yes it does , in my Samsung photo gallery it will populate its own folder WhatsApp and it in internal memory .
