You know the impossibly named REVVL V+ 5G that T-Mobile billed as “America’s most affordable 5G smartphone ever” close to a month ago? Just as promised back then, the absolutely huge mid-ranger is ready to go on sale at the “Un-carrier” tomorrow after making its Metro by T-Mobile debut on July 12, and ahead of this highly anticipated expansion, we have some good and some potentially not-so-good news today for you.
On the not so bright side of things, there’s a solid chance this 6.82-inch bad boy will end up replacing the OnePlus Nord N200 5G
as the latest protagonist of Magenta’s hugely popular “Great Free 5G Phone Upgrade” program starting… tomorrow, July 23.
Although physically larger than both the Nord N200 5G and Galaxy A32 5G
, the REVVL V+ 5G is not exactly superior from many important standpoints, settling for HD+ screen resolution, a fairly modest MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC, and a triple rear-facing camera system consisting of 16, 5, and 2MP sensors.
Of course, it’s hard to argue with the appeal of a free Android 11 smartphone, especially one with a hefty 5,000mAh battery and fast 18W charging support, when all you have to do to bring its $200 list price down to $0 is trade in a functional device (“dumb” phones included), as well as agree to a two-year installment plan.
If for some reason that doesn’t sound convenient enough, you will also be able to get the REVVL V+ 5G for free (after monthly bill credits) without a device trade-in as long as you don’t mind adding a new line of wireless service to an existing or new T-Mobile
