Looks to be fairly basic.

Comes with a 100 Concurrent MOB license but doesn't support MOB so guessing is the Check Point Mobile for Windows Client support that is for as the SK states Basic VPN remote access through mobile application is supported.

Never been a fan of Remote Access on the SMB boxes, tended to use them at Branch and then Central Site with Full Gaia Boxes Remote Access then over the Site to Site VPN to the Branch.

Just about the same as in the former, older models:

SSL VPN requires MOB Blade enabled. This Tickbox is not available on 1550 devices

No - the SSL Portal requires MAB Blade. Remember good old SNX, long before MAB ? This is used with SMB, see sk87522 How to connect to the office from SMB (600/700) Appliance using SSL VPN? for details.

...  otherwise this would not be called remote, but internal access ! If CPs SK naming shows difficulties concerning the english language that is certainly not my fault 😎 ! I would just follow my suggestions, Mr. Shoemaker 😉 .
