The BLU 5.5 phablet is an updated variant of the previous 5.3 and 5.3S models, and as i mentioned earlier, features 5.5 inch TFT display with relatively low 480 x 854 pixels screen resolution, and 178 ppi pixel density.

And if we will take a closer look into internal hardware of the new BLU 5.5 phablet – it has some nice powerful specs, which makes it an attractive handset available at very affordable price.
