T-Mobile has been slowly changing the carrier market over the last few years, ever since its Uncarrier movement got underway. Recently, we’ve learned that Big Magenta is looking to shake things up again with its next Uncarrier move. However, there may be more in the cards than just that.

According to information received by Android Authority, T-Mobile is gearing up to launch a new “affordable smartphone” with its own branding. The T-Mobile REVVL T1 will be the first in a new lineup of devices which will include the REVVL T2 and REVVL T3 Pro.

The REVVL T1 will feature a 5.5-inch FHD display, but there is no information regarding what processor will be powering the device. However, the leak shares that the device will include a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 13MP rear-facing camera.

We are also expecting to see a 3,000mAh battery and fingerprint sensor, but it’s unknown whether we’ll see fast-charging capabilities or USB Type-C. Regardless, the REVVL T1 will include Android Nougat out of the box, and there will likely be some included bloatware along with it.

What may be the most interesting aspect of this new device is that it will be manufactured by TCL. If you remember, this is now the company in charge of manufacturing the BlackBerry KeyOne, along with other devices. However, the report states that it’s not known whether TCL will be making the REVVL T2 and T3 Pro.

There’s no specific information regarding pricing for the new REVVL lineup, but the T1 is expected to be nestled in the budget range. Let us know what you think about this new device and if it would interest you once T-Mobile makes it official.
