A British smartphone manufacturer, WileyFox, recently outed not just one, but two new handsets that are said to rival the high-end specs and the low price of the OnePlus 2, OnePlus' handset that it has dubbed the "flagship killer" because of its high-power and affordability.
The new devices are called Storm and Swift and they both run on the CyanogenMod OS. The CyanogenMod OS is a custom version of Android. According to a Tech Times report, the two devices also feature additional privacy measures and are thus called "ultra-privacy-aware." They are said to be able to "lock down accessible apps" making it safer to use with kids, as well as safer to share device usage with others.
According to WileyFox's European Chief Executive Offier Nick Muir, they want to target customers who want "choice, security and reassurance." He said in statement: "These savvy individuals do not want their data made available beyond their control. They want to be able to change the appearance of their screen, beyond just the wallpaper and lock-screen.... And above all they want great quality, premium handsets with the latest technology. Responsive, well-built, reliable, quick-charging handsets with great battery life. And that's what WileyFox is all about." more >>
