T-Mobile Alchemy coming this fall
Later this week, T-Mobile is expected to introduce an affordable handset with a dual-camera setup that has been confirmed to carry the REVVL name. Later this year, another T-Mobile-branded handset is expected to hit the market, namely the low-end Alchemy.
Insiders familiar with the matter who spoke to Android Authority reveal that the company in charge of developing the Alchemy handset is Coolpad. This brand recently launched the Defiant, a US$100 handset made for T-Mobile. The upcoming T-Mobile Alchemy has a similar design, with a curved, textured back, a speaker placed on the back, but uses a dual-camera setup. Below the camera assembly, a fingerprint reader can be noticed as well.
Since many Chinese brands unleash handsets with dual cameras these days for around US$150 or even less, it would not be surprising to see the Alchemy retail for a price similar to its sibling mentioned earlier. The launch date is not official yet, but the October 6 date shown in the image might be just it. We will get back to the T-Mobile Alchemy as soon as we find out anything new about it, so stay tuned.
