Mid-range phones are starting to cast a shadow on premium flagships, providing most of the features and overall quality of devices costing up to four times as much. Your average user would be just as happy carrying a Moto G5 Plus as they would a Samsung Galaxy S8, and the hundreds of dollars saved could buy an additional Chromebook or smartwatch. T-Mobile is capitalizing on this trend by launching the REVVL Plus, a feature-packed device that retails for only $200 (as low as $8/month).
The REVVL Plus is a follow-up to the original REVVL that launched back in August. That model sported a 5.5-inch 720p display, single 13 megapixel camera on the back, a generous 32GB of storage, fingerprint sensor and 3,000mAh battery. It retailed for $125 or only $6/month. It wasn’t a phone for hardcore enthusiasts, but satisfied general users on a budget and sold almost three times more than T-Mobile had forecasted. The REVVL Plus takes a big step forward in both specs and design, and it’ll only cost a few dollars more per month.
This time around we have a 6-inch 1080p IPS display, dual rear cameras (13MP and 5MP), 32GB of storage (expandable to 128GB), 2GB of RAM (same as the original), 3,380mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor and special edition black and magenta paint job. It also launches with Android Nougat.
The REVVL Plus can be had for $0 down and $9/month with an 18-month JUMP! on Demand lease or $8 down and $8/month for 24 months on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan. As a comparison, T-Mobile sells the Galaxy S8 for $30 down and $30/month. If you live on social media and like watching YouTube videos, the REVVL Plus will serve you well without breaking the bank.
The phone hits store shelves on November 17th and you can watch an official unboxing here.
