Wileyfox Will Be Updating It's Entire Lineup Of Phones Till Date To Nougat 7.1.1 By April End
In a world where Android updates are hard to come by, especially for previous flagships, Wileyfox has set an example for others to follow. The British smartphone manufacturer had previously confirmed that it will be updating it's entire lineup of devices to a close variant of stock Android. The company has now announced the slated timeline for the update rollout.
Wileyfox Swift 2, Swift 2 Plus and Swift 2 X will be updated to the latest version of Android, Nougat 7.1.1, within the next two weeks. The Nougat treatment will then be extended to Swift and Storm within the next 4-5 weeks. Swift & Storm were the first phones launched by the company in August 2015. Wileyfox Spark, Spark + and Spark X will be getting the update by the end of April. It is worth noting here that this update timeline falls close to Wileyfox's aim of updating it's entire roster of smartphones to Nougat by the end of 2017's Q1.
All Wileyfox handsets are powered by CyanogenOS out of the box. Cyanogen Inc, the company behind CyanogenOS, had recently undergone through a turmoil of internal disputes which had led to various reorganisation efforts and layoffs. Cyanogen had even bid adieu to CyanogenOS in it's efforts to sell a 'modular OS' in parts instead. More recently, the company had called off all it's services, including CyanogenMod, and had renamed itself to Andrasta. It was thus evident that none of the Wileyfox phones will be receiving further updates from Cyanogen. In "a promise to maintain a no bullshit attitude to the Wileyfox user experience", Wileyfox decided to take on all the adversities. From being a company with no experience on the software front, the company's determination and efforts have undoubtedly set an example for the other OEMs to follow. Moreover the very fact that Wileyfox will be updating all their phones till date to Nougat just goes on to show how much value the company gives to their existing customers. We hope that the other OEMs learn from Wileyfox's determination and pay heed to their consumers.
