- Google just added three new Project Fi phones to its roster: the LG G7 ThinQ, the LG V35 ThinQ, and the Motorola Moto G6.
- The two LG devices are not yet available to pre-order, but the Moto G6 is.
- This update doubles the number of phones consumers can choose when signing up for Google’s wireless service.
Google announced today on its blog that three new phones will be available to consumers who choose Project Fi as their wireless carrier. Those three devices are the LG G7 ThinQ, the LG V35 ThinQ, and the Motorola Moto G6.
Unfortunately, none of the devices are yet available to buy, and only the Moto G6 is available to pre-order. The two LG devices are listed as “coming soon.” However, you won’t likely have to wait too long since the LG V35 ThinQ will go on sale at AT&T on June 8, and the LG G7 ThinQ will go live around the same time.
This update to the phone roster at Project Fi doubles the number of choices consumers have when buying a phone through the wireless service. Previously, the only choices were the Google Pixel 2, the Google Pixel 2 XL, and the Motorola Moto X4 with Android One.
The three new devices come in a wide range of price points. For example, the LG V35 ThinQ will cost $900 through Project Fi, while the Moto G6 will only cost $200. This new range of pricing will likely make Project Fi more applicable to different people’s needs.
The phones do all have a few things in common, though: large screens, portrait mode-equipped cameras, and expandable storage. Also, the phones are obviously capable of working on the unique Project Fi network.
Phones on Project Fi must be able to roam across the two different network types in the United States: GSM and CDMA. Few phones have this capability, which is why you can’t bring-your-own-device to Project Fi (unless it is identical to the devices Google currently offers for sale or on this list of compatible devices).
Project Fi does have some serious perks, like unlimited data, unlimited international roaming, RCS messaging with other Project Fi users, and more. You can read our roundup of the Project Fi plans here.
