T-Mobile just launched (Opens in a new tab) Its latest smartphone, Revvl 6, is the latest 5G option available to the company.
The new Revvl 6 Pro may not be a flagship by any means, but it does offer a great value given the relatively low price tag. The device features a 6.82-inch HD+ display and a large 5000mAh battery. On the back there is a set of 50MP quad cameras linked to a 5MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 16MP front camera.
Powering the device is a MediaTek Dimensity 700. This might not sound impressive, but this is the same chip that powers the Moto G 5G (2022) that I reviewed recently, and I was pleasantly surprised by its performance. The Revvl 6 Pro similarly features 6GB of RAM, along with 128GB of expandable storage (T-Mobile refers to the company’s $5 Google One storage plan. However, unlike the Moto, the Revvl 6 has Pro is based on NFC, allowing users to take full advantage of the Google Wallet.
Oh, and there’s wireless charging, something you rarely see on budget Android phones at this price point.
The basic Revvl 6 is a step down from the Pro, but not by much. The phone has the same chipset, but the RAM and storage have shrunk to 4GB and 64GB respectively. It also comes with a 13MP triple camera setup without an ultra-wide sensor, a smaller 6.52-inch HD+ display and a 4,500mAh battery.
Both phones support T-Mobiles Extended Range and Ultra Capacity 5G networks for some of the most reliable 5G speeds. T-Mobile also says it’s built in collaboration with Google through its own GMS Express program, ensuring that these phones feature “Google’s best apps and services.”
However, the best part is the price. The Revvl 6 Pro is available for just $220, while the non-Pro Revvl 6 version sells for just $170. Additionally, T-Mobile customers who add a new line can get any phone for free with billing credits, while Metro by T-Mobile customers can get a free device with an eligible plan.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper than the Pixel 6a, the new Revvl 6 hardware will be available on August 4.
