  • Today, T-Mobile launched the T-Mobile Revvl 2 and Revvl 2 Plus.
  • Both phones are budget devices but feature some pretty solid specs considering how much they cost.
  • The T-Mobile Revvl 2 and Revvl 2 Plus will be available starting November 16, 2018.

In the summer of 2017, T-Mobile launched the T-Mobile Revvl — a decent Android smartphone with an extremely affordable price. Today, the Uncarrier is finally releasing the follow-up to the original Revvl with the T-Mobile Revvl 2 and T-Mobile Revvl 2 Plus.

As one would expect, both phones exclusively work on the T-Mobile network and are optimized for T-Mobile service, which of course includes band 12 support.

Here are the best T-Mobile deals and offers right now (October 2018)

T-Mobile is now the third biggest U.S. wireless carrier and could soon be the second if the Sprint merger works out. Its growth is due in part to the many aggressive T-Mobile deals and offers …

To be clear, neither the Revvl 2 or Revvl 2 Plus will stack up against something like a Samsung Galaxy S9 or even a OnePlus 6T. However, T-Mobile is offering the devices for the low prices of $168 and $252 respectively, which is nothing to sneeze at. To sweeten the deal, T-Mobile will give you a Revvl 2 for free if you add a new line to your existing T-Mobile account (you can also add a line and get the Revvl 2 Plus for $84).

Both devices run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and feature rear fingerprint scanners, microSD expansion slots, and a full two-year warranty. Check out the unboxing video below to get a good look at the magenta-infused devices, and check out the specs table underneath to see what each device is packing.

The T-Mobile Revvl 2 and T-Mobile Revvl 2 Plus will be available at all T-Mobile stores and at T-Mobile.com starting November 16, 2018.
