If you’ve never heard of a company called Siswoo or seen their mobile devices, there’s no shame in admitting it since they’re a relatively smaller mobile device company compared to big name brands like Samsung or LG, or even smaller but rapidly growing brands like Xiaomi. They’re a company based out of Europe, although they do ship phones worldwide so it shouldn’t be too difficult to get a hold of one of their devices even if you live in other regions. For those who live in Europe or any other customers who may be interested, Siswoo just started the presale for their latest device called the C55 Longbow and it comes in at a rather affordable cost.
In addition to the presale now being live, consumers can pick from one of two colors of either black or white, with the black starting to ship on July 27th while the white model begins to ship to buyers starting the first week of August. Prices for the C55 Longbow are set at â‚¬169.00 which converts to roughly $185 USD, so it’s definitely falling in the entry level to mid-range for a handset and coming in under $200. As far as specifications goes for the device, the Siswoo C55 Longbow actually carries some pretty decent hardware for something that costs as little as it does. It comes equipped with a 5.5-inch HD display and it weighs about a 160 grams with dimensions of 78 x 154.5 x 8.4.
Camera wise the C55 Longbow is packing a 13MP camera on the back with auto focus and LED flash, and on the front it’s carrying a 5MP with a selfie enhancement, face detection and LED flash as well. It’s powered by a 64-bit Octa-Core MediaTek 6753 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It’s also listed as running on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and is powered by a 3300mAh battery. It also supports GSM, WCDMA, and FDD-LTE networks with Bluetooth 4.0 support connectivity. There was no mention of whether or not it supports external storage, but 16GB should be plenty for the average user which is who will be likely targeted by this specific handset. If you live in Europe and are looking for a new low cost device, the C55 Longbow in black begins shipping next Monday so it won’t be long before people start getting their phones.
