This new 5.2-inch smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, and a 3,010 mAh battery. It also has dual-SIM support and runs Cyanogen OS 13.1.

Wileyfox unveiled two affordable handsets back in November, about one year after its first two handsets arrived on the market. After the original Swift and last year's Swift 2 and Swift 2 Plus, this UK-based company now unleashes another smartphone that joins the Swift lineup, namely Swift 2 X.

Swift 2 X comes with the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC with Adreno 505 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 5.2-inch full HD multitouch with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and 424 ppi
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 16 MP back
  • Connectivity: hybrid dual-SIM, NFC (Android Pay support), 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C
  • Operating system: Cyanogen OS 13.1 (based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow)
  • Battery/Autonomy: 3,010 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 support; up to 260 minutes talk time and 180 hours standby

This handset also has a fingerprint reader on the back and, fortunately, comes with both a traditional 3.5 mm audio jack and USB Type-C. The only color option available is "midnight" (black) and the price is around $270 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
