Wileyfox launches Spark, Spark + and Spark X phones: All you need to know

Wileyfox today announced three new phones- the Spark, Spark+ and Spark X, almost a year after it launched the £199 Storm in the UK.

Costing between £89.99 and £129.99, the three new phones offer impressive specifications and choices to buyers despite their low price tags.

Wileyfox Spark features a 5-inch IPS HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a MediaTek MT6735A Quad Core processor, 8GB of internal storage, a MicroSD card slot offering 32GB of additional storage, 1GB of RAM, a removable 2,200 mAh battery and 8MP front and rear cameras.

Spark will also offer dual SIM slots, 4G LTE connectivity and will run Cyanogen 13 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. It weighs at just 134g and is now available for pre-order on the Wileyfox UK website.

The Wileyfox Spark+, which costs £25 more than the Spark, features the same 5-inch IPS HD display and the same MediaTek MT6735A Quad Core processor but offers twice the storage (16GB) and RAM (2GB) combination. The rear camera is a more powerful 13-megapixel one while the front camera resolution at 8-megapixels is the same as the one in the Spark. The battery is also the same and the phone, featuring exact dimensions and weight as the Spark, looks and feels the same as well.

The Wileyfox Spark X, which costs £129.99 and is the costliest among the three phones, has been called the 'nifty big brother of the Spark range' by Wileyfox. It features a larger 5.5-inch IPS HD display but with the same resolution as in the other two phones but a better pixel density of 267ppi. It also features, like the Spark+, a MediaTek MT6735A Quad Core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a MicroSD slot offering 32GB of additional storage, 13MP rear and 8MP front cameras and Dual SIM support. However, it features an impressive 3,000 mAh battery but the standby time on Dual SIM scenario is more than the Spark+ but lesser than the Spark+ in a single SIM scenario. Thanks to the larger display, the phone weighs at 162g but is as slim as the Spark and Spark+ phones.

All three phones- the Spark, Spark+ and Spark X, will be available in Sandstone Black and White colour options and will come with three-year warranties which will cost an additional £9.99.
