T-Mobile's own-brand Revvl line of smartphones is growing today with the debut of the Revvl Plus. Next up is the T-Mobile Revvl Plus, which is a larger smartphone that still comes with an affordable price tag. It will go on sale beginning November 17 in stores nationwide and online in a special edition black and magenta color scheme. The new smartphone boasts a similar design to the original REVVL, but with a few important differences.

As its name suggests, the Revvl Plus is bigger than the Revvl that launched in August. Compared to the Revvl launched earlier this year, its successor comes with a bigger display, a bigger battery and an upgraded processor. It features a 5.5-inch HD display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 3000 mAh battery. Customers looking to get a dual-camera phone on the cheap, will probably be interested to know that the REVVL Plus features a 13-megapixel/5-megapixel combo on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel selfie snapper on the front. Like the first Revvl, the Plus has a fingerprint sensor and runs Android Nougat. The 32 GB of native storage will likely be eaten up by the operating system and other little bits, so the micro SD card slot that can provide up to an extra 128 GB of memory is a welcome inclusion. Alternatively, you can pay $0 down and $9 each month on JUMP! On Demand option, or you can fork over $8 down and then $8 per month for 24 months on the Equipment Installment Program (EIP).

For its part, T-Mobile released a rock music-infused unboxing video for the Revvl Plus that seems to position the phone as a badass country legend, straight out of a hot pink box.
