T-Mobile has unveiled its new Revvl budget smartphones, the Revvlry and Revvlry+, which are set to launch July 19. Touting the phones as having "flagship features without the flagship price," T-Mobile will be charging $8.34 per month, with zero down, for the Revvlry, and $14 down plus $14 a month for the Revvlry+ on 24-month contracts.

The phones come with a magenta power button, a 3,000mAh battery, face unlock, fingerprint sensors and a 1.8GHz octa-core processor, and they run Android 9.0 Pie.
The Revvlry has a 13MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front camera, a 5.7-inch HD+ Max Vision display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM and a Qualcomm SD632 chipset. The Revvlry+ has 16MP and 5MP dual rear cameras, a 12MP front camera, a 6.24-inch FHD+ Max Vision display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM and has a Qualcomm SD636 chipset.
