T-Mobile Revvl leaks again, this time in hands-on photos

Days after we got a clear look at the T-Mobile Revvl and learned its launch date and pricing, some hands-on photos of the unannounced Android phone have surfaced.

Hands-on photos of both the T-Mobile Revvl and its packaging have been shared by prolific leakster Evan Blass. The phone looks pretty much like the one we saw in leaked images last week, complete with a protruding rear camera, rear fingerprint reader, and T-Mobile branding.

As a refresher, the T-Mobile Revvl is an own-brand Android phone that’s said to be made by TCL. The phone is packing 5.5-inch HD display, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, quad-core MediaTek MT6738 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD slot. It’s powered by a 3000mAh battery and runs Android Nougat.

T-Mobile hasn’t officially announced the Revvl, but the official @TMobileHelp Twitter account spilled the beans on the phone’s launch date and pricing today. According to the @TMobileHelp account, the Revvl will launch on August 10th, which lines up with the leaked info we got last week.

Pricing for the Revvl is said to be $5 down and $5 per month on EIP or $0 down and $5 per month with JUMP! On Demand. Full retail pricing is set at $125.

    The processor/RAM combo might be an issue depending on how much bloat TMO stuffs into this thing, but overall for $125 this is a great deal for those who don’t want to fork over $500+ on a high end phone.

    • Brian Richards

      More like $900 right?

      • yankeesusa

        What phone is currently $900 besides an iPhone?

        • Mike

          Galaxy S8+ and the iPhone 7 Plus 256GB are both $850 and after taxes it will come up to $900

        • yankeesusa

          Yes, that is true. But it’s not a necessity to get 256gb just like it’s not a necessity to get the deluxe edition of a car when the base model is just as good. If you want more space then yes, you’re going to pay for it. But for the 64gb s8 it’s been available for 475 many times. In fact Samsung ran a bogo that made each phone 375 basically, along with the extras like Netflix and 64gb memory card.

        • Mike

          bogo are promos not everyday prices and you must qualify for it. Buy one get one free for the S8 required you to either go EIP or pay in full which is over $1800 after taxes. Plus most deals required a trade in S7, Note 5, and Iphone 6S or 7

          Also the iPhone doesn’t have a sd card slot so 32gb and 64GB is not enough storage these days. So going with the higher priced 128gb and 256GB have become more and more popular.

          Comparing cars to phones isn’t the best logic but basic models are called basic for a reason. Basic cars have little to no features and are less appealing. I have a 2016 Yukon Denali and there’s plenty of features the base model doesn’t have that I do.

        • yankeesusa

          I just mentioned the promo to give an idea that many deals are out there and many ways to get phones way under $900 and in many cases way under $600. Also, the promo i was referring to comes directly from samsung which didn’t require eip and didn’t require an additional line. In fact, only one of the phones needed to be activated to get the 2nd one free. The refund came in about 10 days after activating just one of the phones.

          Putting the promo aside, you can get a 64gb s8 for only $750 and in many cases cheaper. The iphone yes, doesn’t have memory card slot but at the same time the iphone is a beast on it’s own. Their pricing is based on popularity and many times people buy it just to own an iphone.

          And yes, comparing cars fits perfectly for most cars. The only difference between a base and a higher end one are extras like leather and amenities, it’s the same engine and will get you from point a to point b. Even you yourself said, your’e denali has more features than the the less appealing basic, i’m sure they cost extra, just like a phone with more memory. But just like many cars are now having many features stock, phones are doing the same, like the 64gb s8 which has all the same things as the 256gb version. In fact it’s actually easier to save on a phone than on a car because usually that’s the only difference, internal memory.

          My point is just to say that phones can be found under $900, no need to pay over $900 unless, in this case you want more space. That is a choice you make and therefore you have to pay extra.
          But it’s all good. This was a good conversation but it looks like we’re at a point where we can agree to disagree. Thanks for the convo though.

      T-Mo’s bloat on most phones is one app that runs at startup (that can be turned off) and a bunch of manual launch apps that can mostly be uninstalled.

    • yankeesusa

      You’re in luck. Tmobile is the company with the least of it. Usually it’s only the t-mobile app and visual voicemail and possibly lookout. That’s it.

  • Roger Shahan

    When will the revv 2 and revv 3 pro be announced

    • Sayahh

      I’ll wait for the REVVL 7.

    • Jeremy Turnley

      The Alchemy is next up…

      • Roger Shahan

        The alchemy is less expensive but lower spec wise from what ive seen

  • Mike

    not bad for $125. This can be a good phone for a older person or kids.

    • Sayahh

      A marketing genius came up with this to be rolled out along the 55+ plan.

      • Jeremy Turnley

        Damn. That is indeed a pretty killer combination.

  • Jeremy Turnley

    I find the fact that you can get a $125 phone on JOD fascinating. I guess it’s for people who just want to see what a phone that cheap is like before they go back to get something better?

    Played with one at my local tmo store. They already had one out on the display table. There is a front facing speaker and the software is ok. The media tek processor was a huge mistake as the phone struggled to keep up with simple task… They should have went with a SD 660… Hopefully a software update helps with the software glitches…
