The mobile phone is full of spams

I recently bought this android mobile phone which is released this year. But it's full of spams. I could not even turn on the data, its automatically navigates to various sites which I do not visit once. I don't know if it is some kind of virus. notifications alerts are continuously coming and fill the mobile phone. anyone know how to stop this.

What phone?

My first move would be a factory reset. I won't guess if you set it up so what make, model phone and who set it up?

Today's news is about AT&T employees installing malware and more. Is this some "unlocked" phone that was from them?
