T-Mobile REVVL T1 leak reveals image and details of T-Mo’s own-brand phone

tmobilerevvl1leaktmo

Last month, a report claimed that T-Mobile is planning to launch its own device. Details on the mystery product were pretty light at the time, but that’s changing today.

The new phones expected to be launched are called the T-Mobile REVVL series, claims a report from Android Authority. The model you see above is said to be the T-Mobile REVVL T1, which reportedly features a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 3000mAh battery, and fingerprint reader.

The Android Nougat-powered REVVL T1 is said to be manufactured by TCL, the same company that’s manufacturing the BlackBerry KEYone.

Other devices in the REVVL series are said to be called the REVVL T2 and REVVL T3 Pro. None of the specs for these devices are known quite yet, but given that it’s got “Pro” in its name, the T3 model could be the highest-end of the bunch.

There’s no word on when the REVVL T1 will launch or how much it’ll cost when it does, but it’s rumored that T-Mobile wants to use the REVVL series to offer phones that have premium specs and affordable prices.

The REVVL T1 shown in today’s leak isn’t going to compete with new flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 in terms of design, but it looks like a nice enough slab of a smartphone. There’s still a lot we don’t know about the device, including its full spec list and how aggressively T-Mobile plans to price it, but the news that T-Mo may be planning to launch a line of own-brand smartphones certainly is interesting. Stay tuned.

    Specs sounds like a OnePlus 3, but I doubt it’s packing 6GB RAM…curious to hear the price on the T1 version. Better not be more than $299.

    • Gust

      Better not be more than $199.

      • Tanner B. Harman

        Better not be more than $0.99 w/ a 2 year contract.

        • Ty Christensen

          Hell the damn thing better be free, get real guys, lol. I’d say it’ll be $250-$300.

        • Aaron Davis

          T-mobile doesn’t have contracts, and the deposit price is based on your credit, not the cost of the phone.

          Offering a phone for 99 cents with contract is just a gimmick anyway. They could offer it for free, and just add that 99 cents to the first bill, but they want people to think they bought a $300+ phone for only 99 cents.

  • Brian M.

    loaded with their own bloatware too I’m sure.

  • MadMartigan

    I would prefer the volume rocker on the other side, but looks fine other than that.

    Will be interesting to see the CPU/RAM in this and the others as well as the radios and obviously, the software.

    I really hope they keep it as close to “stock” as possible. (AOSP with GAPPS and an unlocked bootloader with recovery images would be amazing, but very likely also too good to be true).

  • Rob H.

    Please NOT be skinned, any bloatware be uninstallable, and those speaker grilles have stereo speakers behind them.

    • Francisco Peña

      Everything will be Magenta!!!!!

  • Jamshaid Khan

    I hear its going to have iOS installed, not android

    • Sharti24

      Lol yeah right

    • Sayahh

      Where are you hearing this? I doubt Apple is suddenly licensing iOS but that’s one way to make more money, I guess.

  • riverhorse

    Request list for the Pro version, in order of preference :

    1. SCREEN SIZE. OVER 6″ minimum accepted 6
    2. RESOLUTION. QHD minimum acepted something higher than 1080
    3. STORAGE. 128GB will accept 64 IF #1 thru 7 fulfilled.
    4. NFC mandatory, no exceptions
    5. SD SLOT would accept none @ storage 256
    6. ROOTABLE would accept no ONLY IF ALL #1-8 fulfilled
    7. ALL POSSIBLE Tmo bands & aggregation tech
    8. REMOVABLE BATTERY.
    9.IR

    #7-8 MUST get one out of those two

    Heck, I must be dreaming… NOT A SINGLE NORTH AMERICAN FLAGSHIP PRESENTLY QUALIFIES.

    • Sayahh

      Don’t they usually plan phones two years in advance? If so, wishlists are cool but won’t make it until the following model or the one after that, no?

      Also, #6 is included in #1-8; looks like you won’t take no for an answer on the rooting part ;)

      • DeeDave

        Oops my bad all specs except for no removable battery.

      • riverhorse

        Come on, LOL u guys know what I meant.

        • Sayahh

          Sure do; just pulling your leg :)

      • riverhorse

        I bet you T3 Pro has what I seek… and at reasonable price to boot.

        • Sayahh

          T3 Pro = T-Mobile’s version of Nokia 8 or Nokia 9?

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Good catch! Maybe even all three Operating systems far out if it happen right and all good things in one phone!

        • Rob Pickett

          Never happen

    • Raul G.

      What number is the 3.5mm headphone jack?

      • riverhorse

        You’re right, BUT… I Doubt anyone would be foolish enough to repeat that mistake.
        #1 maybe? Or get adapter splitter?

    • Francisco Peña

      6. ROOTABLE would accept no ONLY IF ALL #1-8 fulfilled

      ummmmm then you can’t accept no, because if not rootable, then #6 fails.. and if #6 fails, then #1-8 can’t all be fulfilled… Should have made it #9.

      Either way, I’ll keep the chinese spying off my phone… NSA.. ok, I can deal with that. lol

      • riverhorse

        U right.
        Meant / Left out OTHER.

      • Sayahh

        Nested paradox? Just kidding. He just won’t take no for an answer! LOL

    • Derek Mounce

      If it’s true about the warranty/insurance thing being included for free then a non removable battery won’t matter anymore to me cause u can trade that phone out after 6-12 months when it starts losing it’s battery life.

      That’s usually when I start to have problems with the batteies as it is with these other phones. I’m annoyed I went for the G5 when my Note 4 died cause Samsung decided they wanted to have an Android IPhone and LG had removable batteries.

      As soon as G6 comes out they act like it’s great news that we lose the removeable batteries so they can add in that bs water proof crap I don’t want to take my phone into a dang pool for 30 minutes they should make it water resistant enough that rain won’t hurt it and be done with it which they did on the Samsung Galaxy S5 so to say they have to make the battery locked in is BS

      • riverhorse

        I’d prefer to carry an extra battery… extended all the better… than a brick.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      I am with riverhorse you got this same list as me! Yes thanks you you made my evening! I thought was the only one with this list! Totally agree! iR blasters rock especially HTC ONe, m8! Lot of added features!

    • Boris Govnic

      I believe front facing speakers is missing from your list

      • riverhorse

        Great point.

        • Boris Govnic

          I also fondly enjoyed the days when phones came with Xenon flashes I had a Motorola zn5 they called it the zine I actually for awhile downgraded from the iPhone 1 to use this Moto phone it took the greatest pictures ever in the dark and then bars and nightclubs and I had an entire european vacation with this phone this is by far the best camera phone I’ve ever used they had a few Motorola phones afterward that were android-based that had the Xenon Flash but no other flagship phone afterwards used Xenon because of the expense of the technology. It’s a shame that Zenon is available but nobody chooses to use it Damn Patent expenses. If they halved the cost to license the technology they probably could have been on every smartphone. This long diatribe what’s the state that I love Xenon Flash and I might dream phone your list plus a Xenon Flash and front-facing speakers would be my dream phone

    • Rob Pickett

      Right I do agree with what u put but for me root ability is make our break

  • DeeDave

    Your wrong Sayahh. I have the galaxy S8+ & it does have all of these specs. Only 64gigs of internal storage but expandable to 256gb. N you can run it on hd fhd or wqhd.

    • riverhorse

      No removable battery. I almost jumped on it. But realistically, 64gb not enough for me…plus the supposedly larger Note 8 coming later …
      Maybe if Tmo firmware gets ported to the larger international version…

      • Andrew Singleton

        Omg get a power brick and mooooooveeee onnnnnnnnn

        • riverhorse

          No thank you. It can still turn itself on in pocket. And if I run phone @qhd won’t last the day.

        • Andrew Singleton

          GET A LARGER POWER BRICK

        • riverhorse

          Even more likely to turn itself on in pocket…
          Takes forever to charge..

        • Andrew Singleton

          get a fast charging power brick. no connection = not charging.

      • Boris Govnic

        I have a g5 as my backup phone. As an s8 owner I still miss removable batteries. If I travel anywhere abroad I will only do so with s5 or g5 with 5 backup batteries to heck with portable chargers that look like pocket Sex toys

    • Sayahh

      So it’s easily rootable (without voiding warranty) even for a noob like me?

      • Rob Pickett

        98% of phones loose the warrenty as soon as u unlock the bootloader.the only ones I know that don’t were nexus and a few developer phones that were brought up.I suggest research and reread instructions two or three times and always have a backup saved

        • Sayahh

          Oh, no, I considered the OnePlus phones because (I think) I read that they allowed rooting. I don’t want to end up with a brick, so when I eventually got an Android, I just left it alone. But I wish they at least let you tweak some aspects of it without voiding the warranty, like an expanded developers option or something.

        • Aaron Davis

          I don’t know if it’s still the case, now that they have been sold, but Motorola had said in the past that unlocking wouldn’t void it’s warranty.

        • steveb944

          HTC doesn’t void the warranty either per the new U11.

        • RLB63

          Yes some phones it won’t void the manufacturers warranty. However, reps have told me it still voids T-Mobile warranty. So you base to go back to the vender. No extended warranty either

  • Seth Owens

    Bet it will be locked down so hard you can’t even use it with a different carrier.

    • riverhorse

      I realistically doubt that. The negative outcry would be overwhelming.

      • steveb944

        Vocal minority. Regular consumer won’t care, and if the reps push these devices they’ll sell like hotcakes.

    • Rob Pickett

      I would hope not for me that’s a deal breaker I look at unlockable bootloaders as paper weights

  • Joseph Guy

    some of you guys are full of it, you want high end specs for nothing sure an budget phone with QHD and 4GB of ram

    • Kaulana1989

      They will have a high end version as well there three models to choose from

      • riverhorse

        Not to mention Pro versions.

        • Kaulana1989

          Hi say pro version retails for under $600

    • riverhorse

      And there are Pro versions too.

    • riverhorse

      I take that back, my bad. Some are dreaming @$199

    • Rob Pickett

      My 2 gig ram 720 p phone works great on andriod n not officially lol.

  • Acdc1a

    I’m looking forward to these devices.

  • The Flounder

    That’s why I use BLU phones, good specs and better pricing

    • Ty Christensen

      I went for the BLU R1 Plus that was released last week and it sucks, multi-touch is useless and the 4,000 mAh doesn’t last as long as it should and it doesn’t report the % correctly either. After contacting BLU all they said to do was a factory reset which did nothing so I returned it to Amazon for a full refund. It’s too bad because other BLU phones that people I know have had were good but this one just isn’t.

    • Rob Pickett

      I like to mod blue can be a pain in the ass for that.but price wise blu is great
