When launched in August 2015, the Swift established Wileyfox as a manufacturer that delivered on its promise of ripping up the rule book, taking on the recognised smartphone players, and providing consumers with desirable mobile experience at the fraction of industry average prices. Swift was crowned ‘Smartphone of the Year’ by Forbes just months later, after shooting to pole position on Amazon in pre-orders alone, and then selling out within days of going on sale.

The new Swift 2 range – encompassing the Swift 2 and Swift 2 Plus – is the highly anticipated next generation phones that build on this challenger heritage, whilst further establishing Wileyfox as a key player in the smartphone market that is going from strength to strength.

A slick and recognisable character

With a balanced flow and elegance to its form, the Swift 2 range is available in three new finishes: Midnight, Gold and Rose. Each phone makes a sophisticated statement. Attention is paid to every detail to make this one of the slickest phones on the market, from the delicate curve of the metal housing to the diamond cut iconic fox logo.
