Project Fi Adds Three New Phones to The Lineup

Google’s MVNO solution, Project Fi, is expanding their lineup with the addition of two LG phones and the Moto G6.  The LG V35 ThinQ and the LG G7 ThinQ will both be available for subscribers starting in June while the Moto G6 is now available for pre-order.  These three join the current lineup of phones that support Project Fi including the Moto X4 and the Google Pixel 2 lineup.

The announcement will give subscribers to the service a budget friendly mobile in the Moto G6 which will be priced at just $199 or $8.29/month for 24 months on a payment plan.  The two LG devices will serve, as you would expect, on the flagship end of the spectrum.

The LG G6 ThinQ will be priced at $749 ($31.21 per month for 24 months) while the LG V35 ThinQ will be priced at $899 ($37.46 per month for 24 months), putting it up there from a pricing perspective with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The expansion of the lineup is a good sign for the overall health and stability of Project Fi.  For the first two years of the service it was exclusive to the Nexus lineup of phones and then the original Pixel.  The arrival of the Moto X4 earlier this year was an indicator of signs to come and backed up comments from Google that they would be expanded to other devices.  With these three phones, you now can get a solid budget friendly device all the way up to a flagship while still getting all of the benefits of Fi itself:  seamless switching of carriers between T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular, flat pricing and extremely competitive international roaming rates.

For more details on the phones and the service, head over to the phone compatibility page at Project Fi.  If you want to try out the service on one of the compatible phones, you can sign up at this link.  You’ll save $20 after you have been active for 30 days.
