Leaks show off T-Mobile's budget-oriented REVVL T1 smartphone
Back in May, we reported on the upcoming REVVL line of budget smartphones from T-Mobile. The phones, which are expected to be manufactured by TCL, the maker of the BlackBerry KEYone, were rumored to offer a great experience at a low cost. Thanks to leaked information found on T-Mobile’s site, we now know a bit more about the upcoming smartphone, the REVVL T1.
Dubbed simply the REVVL on T-Mobile’s support page, the specs listed closely match those we discovered a few months ago, including a 5.5-inch display, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, and a 3000 mAh battery. However, the page reveals a few previously unknown specifications, including 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage (with microSD card support).
The T1 will also ship with a Quad-core 1.5 GHz processor (possibly a variant of the Snapdragon 425 or 427) and Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone will also operate on several of T-Mobile’s 4G LTE bands, including Bands 2, 4, 5, 12, and 66. While earlier rumors pegged the display resolution at 1080p, T-Mobile’s site describes the 5.5-inch screen as “HD,” which means 720p. There isn’t any official news on pricing, but other leaks outside of T-Mobile state the phone will cost $7/month on T-Mobile’s JUMP On Demand program. Understand that this information could be a work in progress and may change at any time, but T-Mobile may have a pretty decent budget phone on its hands here.
