Siswoo C50A launched with support for U.S LTE

siswoo c55 longbow

Siswoo have pounced on a gap in the market and launched an updated version of the C50 Longbow with LTE support for major U.S carriers.

The Siswoo C50 launched earlier in the year and managed to impress during our review. The original model, described as a Xioami Redmi slayer, came with LTE support but only for Chinese and European frequencies, a new model now adds U.S LTE support.

Customers in the United States have been looking at the Chinese phone market from the outside for years now. There is obviously an interested in the phones but lack of LTE support makes them a difficult prospect for customers.

The new Siswoo C50A Longbow, solves issues by adding 4G LTE 700/2600/1700/1900/2100MHz support. 700Mhz is used by AT&T and Verizon in the U.S, plus others. Going a step further Siswoo have already put the C50A through FCC tests so importing the phone shouldnā€™t raise any questions about safety.

    mayiandjay did an unboxing of this phone back on June 20th:

    It’s been listed on Gearbest since then, though not always in stock. If the c50A had a 5.5″ screen, I would have bought it. Hopefully Siswoo will add U.S. 4G bands to some of their other phones.

    Good news. Now if only this was the case for a “real” phone that has 2GB and a midrange processor.

    As Owsley said – this phone has been available for months. A fellow Chinaphone reviewer did a review on it:

    damn, tempted to buy it just to encourage others to follow the trend, but that is some weak specs…
