Wileyfox set to launch new handset on June 28


UK-based manufacturer will unveil follow-up to last year’s award-winning Swift and Storm devices at London Event

WileyFox is set to unveil its second range of handsets in London at the end of June.

The London-based manufacturer, which was launched in the UK on August 25, will take wraps off a new handset range at Sea Containers House on the capital’s South Bank.

Wileyfox’s initial devices received critical acclaim, bagging the first “Challenger Manufacturer Award” at this year’s Mobile News Awards, beating the likes of Honor, KAZAM, Doro, and RugGear to the prize.

The Swift went on sale in Europe on September 22, with Exertis initially bagging exclusive distribution rights on the handset in the UK. Wileyfox later added Data Select to its distribution partners.


  1. With the advent of Android pay in the UK, not having NFC will be the glaring omission. The development team should have been aware of this and planned accordingly. I am hoping that someone thought NFC a necessary feature, but resigned to its being absent.
