Mobile's $125 Revvl is a branded budget phone with a fingerprint sensor

T-Mobile confirms the Revvl Phone will cost $125 T-Mobile's upcoming REVVL handset gets outed, pricing and availability confirmed

T-Mobile touts the Revvl as a "feature-packed phone" that will not break the bank, and it certainly seems that way on paper. If the training material that was leaked last week is any indication, it should arrive with a 5.5-inch HD display, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB RAM with 32GB of storage, and Android Nougat. The device only bears the carrier's brand, but it is manufactured by TCL. As such, the Revvl is expected to be the cheapest of the bunch. On Demand priced at $5 per month with $0 down, or through an EIP for $5 per month and $5 down. While the handset is simply called Revvl (not Revvl T1, as previously believed), T-Mobile makes it clear that this is just the first phone of the Revvl series, although it doesn't say when new models will be unveiled.

T-Mobile's unconventional marketing department strikes again, after very recently confirming the names and main features of an upcoming low-priced Android phone and tablet on the "Un-carrier's" official support webpages. For what the Revvl offers, it is not that shabby of a price, though the Moto E4 Plus, Moto G5 Plus, and others have shown to be solid alternatives. The REVVL will be available in select T-Mobile stores beginning August 10th. Also on the list is LG Aristo for $7 a month and ZTE ZMAX Pro for $8 a month. The LG Aristo costs $144 full retail, Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime $144, LG K20 is $168, and ZTE MAX Pro is $168.

Essential Confirms Amazon And Best Buy Retail Availability
Amazon, which has a leading position in smart speakers with its Echo, invested in Essential via its Alexa Fund. All three images highlight the titanium frame and ceramic body in various machining stages.

We are not sure why someone would want to switch between budget phones every 30 days, but at least the option is now there.
