T-Mobile wants you to treat yourself without breaking your bank with their new REVVL Plus budget smartphone. The company announced the REVVL Plus in a blog post today with a price tag of $200USD. You can also opt to make payments with $0 down and $9 a month with an 18-month JUMP! on Demand lease or $8 down and $8 per month for 24 months on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan.
“We launched the REVVL family because we listen to our customers,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “As smartphone prices soar, the REVVL Plus bucks the trend, delivering high-end features – like bigger screens, better cameras, longer battery life, biometric security and more – at an unbeatable price.”
T-mobile provided the specs below:
- Camera: 13MP & 5MP RFC/8MP FFC
- Battery: 3,380 mAh
- Color: Special edition black with magenta accents
- OS: Android N
- Screen: 6” HD display
- RAM: 2GB
- Capacity: 32GB and expandable to 128GB
- Bands: CAT 4 LTE Bands 2,4,5,12 & 66
- Security: Fingerprint sensor
- Dimensions: 6.5 x 3.25 x .35 in
- Processor: 2.0 GHz Octa-Core
Customers can purchase the REVVL on November 17th in stores nationwide and online in a special edition black and magenta color scheme. While the phone isn’t anything spectacularly special, it should appeal to budget phone buyers. The huge 6″ screen should give users plenty of real estate to do what they need to do. The battery is pretty big considering the display is only an HD panel so it should last pretty well. Budget phones aren’t for everyone but they have improved over the years and this one may be worth your time. Check out the T-Mobile unboxing video of the device below.
