A new UK-based company called Wileyfox is getting into the smartphone game with two new phones designed to offer decent specs at a reasonable price.

The Wileyfox Swift is a $200 phone with a 5 inch, 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and a £129 ($204) price tag, while the Wileyfox Storm is a £199 ($314) phone with a 5.5 inch, 1080p display and a Snapdragon 615 chip.

Both phones run Android-based Cyanogen OS software.
