Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10 Mobile coming December 4

Wileyfox is gearing up to launch a new Windows phone, the Wileyfox Pro.

With Windows 10 Mobile all but dead at this point, Windows phones are on their way out. But, like we saw with Trekstor's recently announced WinPhone 5.0, we still see smaller manufacturers occasionally revealing new devices. The latest comes from Wileyfox, whose new Wileyfox Pro with Windows 10 Mobile is now up for preorder at Amazon UK (via ZDNet).

The Wileyfox Pro was first shown off at IFA 2017, but it wasn't clear when the device would make it to market. Moreover, the phone didn't exactly impress with specs, which include a Snapdragon 210, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage. Also included is an 8MP camera around back and a 2GB shooter up front. Interestingly, the Wileyfox Pro looks to be a rebranded version of the Archos 50 Cesium, with the exception of an extra 1GB of RAM.

Wileyfox is historically a manufacturer that has focused on low-cost Android handsets, so it's interesting to see it step its foot into the Windows phone world – even if it's late to the party. As Wileyfox made clear when it first announced its intentions to build a Windows phone, the WIleyfox Pro is pretty clearly targeted towards the business market. But at a price of £189.99, it could appeal to Windows phone fans looking to pick up a spare phone, even as Microsoft winds down its plans for the platform.

The WIleyfox Pro is up for preorder now on Amazon UK ahead of its December 4 release date.
