As a follow-up to the original Revvl, the carrier has unveiled its next-generation devices — the Revvl 2 and Revvl 2 Plus. The new smartphones come with a sleeker design than their predecessors and also differ in terms of specs. Both smartphones are now available for purchase through T-Mobile.

Design and display

The Revvl 2 doesn’t differ too much from its predecessor in terms of design — but it does look a bit sleeker. It only comes in an all-black design (known as Mirror Black, to be exact), with a body that’s curved around the edges. The Revvl 2 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display (1440 x 720 pixel resolution) and 18:9 screen ratio. At the top is an earpiece, along with a front-facing camera — complete with an LED flash to illuminate those selfies.

On the right is where you’ll find the volume rocker and a power button in T-Mobile’s signature magenta right beneath it. On the back is the rear camera, LED flash, and a fingerprint sensor with T-Mobile’s branding underneath it. For extra security, there’s also a facial-recognition feature.

Under the hood, is a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and MediaTek MT6739 chipset. It houses a 3,000mAh battery and comes with 2GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of native storage. There’s also a MicroSD card slot for up to 128GB of expandable storage. There’s an 8-megapixel front-facing camera and 13-megapixel rear-facing camera on the back right above the fingerprint sensor.

When it comes to software, the Revvl 2 doesn’t run the latest Android operating system — instead it’ll ship with Android 8.1 Oreo, which launched in August 2017. The company released Android 9.0 Pie this past summer. It’s also IP52-rated when it comes to water and dust resistance.

Price and availability

The Revvl 2 is currently available for purchase through T-Mobile. It costs $168, but you can opt to finance it for $7 per month for 24 months with no money down. For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering the device for free if you add an additional line to your plan.
