Second-gen 'foxes set for unveiling at London event.
British startup Wileyfox turned heads late last year with two Cyanogen OS-powered smartphones at competitive price points. The Wileyfox Swift and Storm — selling for £129 and 199 respectively — were part of the broader trend in 2015 towards really affordable Android phones that actually delivered a decent user experience.
And now the company is preparing to launch a new round of handsets.
An invite sent out to press reveals that the next generation of Wileyfox phones will land at an event in London next Tuesday, June 28. The invite refers to a "handset range," suggesting that once again there'll be multiple 'foxes dropping simultaneously. It's also likely the company's software partnership with Cyanogen will continue, though this isn't specifically mentioned.
Last year's Wileyfox Swift impressed with decent performance, impressive build and a quality software experience thanks to Cyanogen. Meanwhile the more expensive Storm left us lukewarm thanks to its mediocre battery life.
We'll be on the ground in London next Tuesday to bring you full coverage of Wileyfox's latest phones. In the meantime, hit the comments and let us know what you'd like to see from Wileyfox.
