US-based wireless network operator T-Mobile has launched a new smartphone — Revvl Plus. This is the successor of the Revvl smartphone, which was launched by the carrier earlier this year in August.
The company says that the phone is “heavy on features but light on the budget.” Compared to the Revvl launched earlier this year, its successor comes with a bigger display, a bigger battery and an upgraded processor.
One of the highlight of the smartphone is the dual camera lenses on the back of the smartphone. The device comes with a 13-megapixel lens and a 5-megapixel shooter at the back. As per the company, the dual-camera setup will allow users to create bokeh effects. On the front, there is an 8-MP selfie camera.
The smartphone comes with a 6-inch Full HD display with screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. While most smartphone manufacturers are now offering 18:9 aspect ratio for the display, this one comes with the old-school 16:9 aspect ratio. It also has a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top protecting the display from minor scratches.
Under the hood, the device is powered by a 2.0GHz oct-core processor. However, the company has not revealed which chipset is used. It packs 2GB of RAM and offers 32GB of internal storage. There is also a microSD card slot, allowing users to further expand the storage capacity.
Just like its predecessor, the Revvl Plus also runs on Android Nougat operating system. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back, just below the camera module. The smartphone is powered by a 3,380mAh battery.
The Revvl Plus is priced at $199 in the US. In addition, users will also be able to lease it for $9 a month through T-Mobile’s Jump On Demand Program or pay it off in 24 monthly installments of $8 after making a down payment of $8. The smartphone will be available in stores from November 17, while the special edition with black-and-magenta colour will be exclusively available online.
