As expected, Wileyfox has today officially unveiled its latest smartphones. The three devices, the Wileyfox Spark, Wileyfox Spark+ and Spark X will pick up from where the current Wileyfox devices, which were launched last year, the Strom and the Swift, left.
Just like the Storm and the Swift, the three smartphones will also be targeted at the budget segment of the market.
The Spark X which has a bigger battery than the Spark+, will go for £130 (about Kshs 17,600 at current exchange rates).
The Spark+ is exactly like the Spark but costs more because it has twice the storage of the latter. The Spark and Spark+ will go for £90 (Kshs 12,200) and £115 (Kshs 15,600) respectively.
All the devices run on Cyanogen OS version 13 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
