Inspired by the recent success of the OnePlus 2, a smartphone maker in Britain that calls itself WileyFox has introduced two new options and is hoping to grab a major chunk of the Android market by offering good specs at competitive price. 

According to a report on Engadget, smartphone markets in the United Kingdom have a new entrant. Calling itself WileyFox, this smartphone maker is being touted as Britain's answer to OnePlus 2. Reports indicate that the WileyFox plans to foray into the market with its offerings that are based on the principle of offering awesome Android features in a compact packaging at a tempting price. Today, the company has introduced two new phones which are being called Storm and Swift. The smartphones are said to function on Cyanogen flavour of Android however it fails to pack the punch in terms of features.

Revealing details about the two devices, the report says that Storm is the expensive version amongst the two. Priced 199 pounds, Storm comes with a 5.5-inch display, an extremely powerful Snapdragon 615 processor and of course a 1080 pixel resolution The device has a 3GB of RAM and massive 32GB of storage for all the other data. In addition to the 20 megapixel camera at the back, Storm also has an 8 MP front facing camera for internet enabled calls and conferences.  

Meanwhile, in another report on Slashgear where the camera features of OnePlus 2 were compared with the other popular smartphones, the former ended up as a winner. The test was conducted by the Slashgear team and the judgements were based on the basis of accumulating public votes for four different photos clicked by each device.

On the other hand, Swift is a relatively more wallet-friendly option available for 129 pounds. While the screen size is the same, the resolution becomes lower. The RAM is also restricted to 2 GB and the process is a grade lower than what drives the operations in Storm.Other highlights include a 13 MP camera and special 5 MP selfie snapper. Pre-orders will start this week as the phone will be made available to customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Storm is expected to arrive in October while its sibling, the Swift will be available in September itself.
