British smartphone vendor Wileyfox has managed to escape liquidation following a formal administration procedure and licensing agreement with compatriot STK.
On this week's show, T-Mobile and Google facing big lawsuits. a couple of dying phone makers and the true threat to civilization (hint: it's a fake phone).
Similar to bankruptcy, the "administration" procedure will see Wileyfox make a last-ditch effort to survive in the uber-competitive smartphone world.
Windows 10 Mobile is still alive... barely, although it would certainly help the losing cause if the Wileyfox Pro wasn't so wildly overpriced.
Don't be impressed, though. The specs are low-end and there's no way it could run Continuum. So, what's this phone for? Why is it at IFA 2017?
Wileyfox pulls through on an Android Nougat update a little late, coping with the demise of Cyanogen with a little of its own software design.
It oddly still runs Cyanogen OS, but otherwise, the Wileyfox Swift 2 X appears to offer solid bang for buck, at least on British shores.
The UK smartphone startup promises to deliver Android Nougat to its six devices in its portfolio after Cyanogen Inc. pulls support for its software.
The Wileyfox Swift 2 and 2 Plus look like two very respectable UK-made Android mid-rangers, with metal builds and fingerprint support in tow.
