British smartphone manufacturer Wileyfox has today unveiled the Wileyfox Spark, Spark+ and Spark X. The Spark is the entry level of the three with the super attractive price of £89.99.

Not exactly an impressive spec sheet, but for a price that’s under £100, it sounds about right.

If you want to go for something a bit heavier there’s the £114.99 Spark+ to consider. You’re getting a lot of what the standard Spark offers: 5-inch 720p display, Mediatek MT6735 quad-core processor, 2,200mAh battery, microSD slot and 8-megapixel front0facing camera.

The boost is seen with 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.

Co-founder Nick Muir states aggressive pricing to be the reason for the lack of NFC. Muir admits Android Pay as accelerated quickly in the UK and Wileyfox will adopt the technology one day, but not with the Spark range.

The Spark range does however are 4G ready devices with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, overlaid with Cyanogen 13.0, straight out of the box.
