The 'Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10' Windows phone has been delayed by two weeks until the 18th of December.

The poorly named Windows phone from Wileyfox, the ‘Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10,’ was meant to launch today, the 4th of December. However, Windows Central noticed that the official product listing on Amazon UK had the launch date pushed back by two weeks. Although this might affect the small consumer market which remains for entry-level Windows Phone handsets, the target business market isn't likely to be too perturbed by this pre-Christmas delay.

Wileyfox’s new Windows phone was initially announced back at IFA 2017 as an overpriced budget phone with an old and underpowered Snapdragon 210 SoC. The idea was to release a device that companies who backed the Windows Phone ecosystem could use to replace older handsets as they became faulty. Wileyfox has dropped the price a bit since their IFA announcement, so the price looks less out of place when compared to the Trekstor WinPhone 5.0 (Snapdragon 617) and Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro (Snapdragon 820).

Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10 specs:

  • Snapdragon 210
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB storage
  • 720p display
  • 2100 mAh battery
  • 8 MP rear camera

The Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10 will now ship in the United Kingdom on the 18th of December for GB£190 (US$255) including VAT.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
