Wileyfox launches the Spark, Spark Plus & Spark X budget phones
Wileyfox has announced its third smartphone – the Spark – after launching the Storm and Swift last year. Wileyfox Spark comes in three different variants running CyanogenOS 13.0 atop Android Marshmallow.
Featuring a 5-inch 720p display, the primary Wileyfox Spark houses a MediaTek MT673 SoC (1.3GHz quad-core), 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage. The dual SIM-compatible handset offers an 8-megapixel camera on the back as well as on the front, and is powered by a 2,200mAh battery.
While the Spark Plus bumps the storage to 16GB and RAM to 2GB, the rest remains the same as the original Spark – except the 13-megapixel camera on the back. That’s not all. Wileyfox has Spark X, which seems to be the most powerful member of its family, sporting a larger 5.5-inch 720p display and 3,000mAh battery, along with 2GB RAM/16GB storage and 13-megapixel camera configuration.
Priced at £89.99, the Spark comes in a Sandstone Black or White outfit, and will be available starting July 12 for retail, followed by the Spark Plus for £114.99 later next month. The Wileyfox Spark X will launch for £129.99 sometime in August.
Pre-orders are now open for the Wileyfox Spark series via Wileyfox’s website and online retailers. Buyers from Amazon will get a free protective case as well as one year screen replacement insurance.
