Bluboo X550 to offer a massive 5300 mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop for $169
More and more little-known Chinese smartphone makers are trying to be successful overseas by launching handsets that could lure customers with low prices and decent features. The latest company to do this is Bluboo, which, as we told you earlier this month, is getting ready to release the X550, a handset that comes with a massive 5300 mAh battery.

Bluboo recently revealed more details about the X550, including its price. Interestingly, it looks like the handset will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board, possibly starting May.

Besides the 5300 mAh battery that should be able to provide a stand-by time of 30 days, the Bluboo X550 features a 5.5-inch display (the resolution isn't known, but it's probably 720 x 1280 pixels), a 64-bit quad-core Mediatek MT6735 processor clocked at up to 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory.

The X550 will be available internationally (online), unlocked, for $169.99. Bluboo photographed the handset (which is 8.9 mm thin) next to an iPhone 6 Plus, so check it out in the slideshow below. Would you be interested in buying the X550, even though it's made by a company that not many have heard of outside of China?
