T-Mobile adds low-cost REVVL 2, REVVL 2 Plus to phone lineup

T-Mobile has added successors to its REVVL and REVVL Plus smartphones, tapping the duo for release on November 16. Unsurprisingly, they’ll debut as the REVVL 2 and REVVL 2 PLUS.

As carrier-branded versions of the Alcatel 3 and Alcatel 7, the pair of phones give users entry-level hardware with Android 8 Oreo. The two handsets are what first-time smartphone owners might be interested in checking out.

Both phones feature displays with 18:9 aspect ratios, fingerprint sensors, facial recognition, and mirror black finishes. Moreover, each has 32GB of internal storage and support T-Mobile’s Band 66 and Band 71 LTE. Further, the tandem are backed by two-year warranties.

The T-Mobile REVVL 2 is the smaller of the two handsets and comes with a 5.5-inch display and a 13-megapixel rear camera. Around front is an 8-megapixel camera and inside is a 3,000mAh battery to power the phone. A quad-core 1.5GHz processor is complemented by 2GB RAM.

The bigger REVVL 2 Plus packs a 6-inch screen with a dual-camera (12-megapixel and 2-megapixel) configuration on the rear. The front offers up an 8-megapixel shooter but internally we find a 4,000mAh power source. As far as performance goes, this one has a more robust octa-core 2.5GHz processor with 3GB RAM.
