T-Mobile Revvl Plus to launch on November 17th; 6-inch phablet offers dual camera setup for $200
Back in August, T-Mobile introduced the Revvl, a budget priced phone for T-Mobile customers who "want a boatload of features without spending a boatload." The phone carries a 5.5-inch HD screen (720 x 1280 resolution), 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, all powered by a 3000mAh battery. Priced at $150, the Revvl is a capable handset giving bargain hunters a lot of bang for their buck.
When the Revvl was unveiled, T-Mobile hinted that it planned on extending the line. That started today with the unveiling of the T-Mobile Revvl Plus. This time, the nation's third largest carrier is offering a budget phablet with a 6-inch screen and a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood is the energy sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset, the same SoC used on handsets with long battery life like the BlackBerry KEYone and Motorola Moto Z Play Droid. This includes an octa-core 2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 506 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable storage.
The dual-camera setup on back features both a 13MP sensor and a 5MP sensor. The 8MP camera in front snaps selfies and handles video chats. The Revvl Plus has a 3380mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner adorns the back of the handset. Android Nougat is pre-installed, and the phone is offered in a black and magenta hue.
The T-Mobile Revvl Plus will launch on November 17th, priced at $200. Or, it can be purchased using the carrier's EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) for $8 down and $8 a month over 24 months. On JUMP! you can buy the Revvl Plus for $0 down and $9 a month over 18 months.
According to T-Mobile, its customers use 34% more data a month than Verizon and AT&T subscribers, and are 3 times as active over social media.
