(PRESS RELEASE) BONN, 29-Sep-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — Deutsche Telekom (ETR: DTE), one of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies and the largest telecommunications provider in Europe by revenue, has announced the roll out of its new 5G smartphone T Phone, built on T-Mobile US’ success “REVVL” line, across nine European countries. The sales are slated to begin on October 5th with Germany to follow in early 2023. The company strongly believes that digital connectivity is a universal right and the expansion of 5G connectivity is having a transformational impact on many aspects of modern life. 5G delivers more than just superfast speeds and its coverage and bandwidth truly impacts our digital future from allowing instant, always on access to everything from education to entertainment to the products and services needed to build connected cities.

At a time when the high price of 5G smartphones is a barrier for many to access fast connected technology, the launch of T Phone and T Phone Pro is an important step in narrowing the digital divide, as they combine large screens, high resolution cameras and premium design with an affordable price for many. The 5G-enabled T Phone & T Phone Pro offer a wide range of high-quality features at a handset-only price starting from 199€ and 249€ accordingly, while prices vary across countries. Also, attractive tariff bundles starting at 1€ per month will be available.

Launching this October in nine European markets (across Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, in Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania and Slovakia), the T Phone & T Phone Pro will then be available in Germany from early 2023.

“We acknowledge the importance of 5G access for all, given the role it will play in our shared digital future. With the affordable and feature-packed T Phone and T Phone Pro, we are bringing the benefits of 5G into even more of our customers’ pockets in nine European markets. With these new devices, our customers can enjoy the possibilities of our ever-expanding 5G network, ranging from entertainment to countless digital products and services – at a very accessible price. We want everyone to take part!”
Dominique Leroy, Board Member for Europe at Deutsche Telekom AG

Building upon the expertise and economies of scale created by T-Mobile US’s successful own brand “REVVL’ line of smartphones, T Phone and T Phone Pro have been developed in partnership with leading software manufacturer Google.
