British startup Wileyfox grabbed a lot of attention last year with its competitively priced Storm and Swift, and the company is now announcing its third smartphone, the Spark. Set to be available SIM-free for £89.99, the Spark offers a 5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, a microSD slot, and Cyanogen OS 13.0 atop Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Other specs of the Spark include a MediaTek MT6735 SoC with a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, 8MP cameras at the front and back, 4G and dual-SIM, and a 2200mAh battery. The phone comes in a Sandstone Black or White finish, and offers 2.5D curved glass at the front.
Wileyfox is also offering the Spark+, which bumps the internal storage to 16GB and RAM to 2GB, and the camera at the back to 13MP. Then there’s the Spark X, which offers a larger 5.5-inch 720p display and a 3000mAh battery, as well as 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage and a 13MP camera.
Pre-orders for the Spark series will kick off from later today on Wileyfox’s website and online retailers. Those pre-ordering from Amazon will receive a free protective case as well as free screen replacement insurance valid for one year.
The Spark retails for £89.99/€119.99, the Spark+ will set you back £114.99/€149.99, and the Spark X is debuting at £129.99/€169.99. The Spark will launch July 12, and will be joined by the Spark+ later next month. The Spark X will be hitting shelves early August.
