Most of the features of Wileyfox Swift 2 X are same as that of previous models in Swift series with a few upgradations. If we talk about design, it’s almost same with a slightly thinner frame. Swift 2X is installed with a bigger 5.2-inch display and with much better resolution at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels as compared to Swift 2 Plus. It is powered by a 64-bit 1.4GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 430 CPU coupled with 3GB of RAM. Big memory storage is another advantage of Wileyfox Swift 2X as it has internal memory of 32GB expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD card.
The Swift 2X features a 16-megapixel main camera with Samsung sensor and 8-megapixel front selfie shooter. The handset gets its juice from a 3,010mAh battery which is bigger than the prior Swift family. Other highlights of Swift 2X are fingerprint sensor on the back panel, USB Type-C, NFC, and QuickCharge support.
The body of Swift 2 X is also made of aircraft grade aluminum and brilliantly crafted with comfortable curves. It is available only in one color- bluish black “Midnight” colour. This device seems to have a better White Balance performance as compared to the rest of Swift family. In the case of OS, it will run on Cyanogen OS 13.1 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. But there is a catch! If you are aware the company behind Cyanogen had shut down last year.
