If you’ve been thinking of moving your cell service to Project Fi, here’s some good news. Google announced today three new phones that will fully support its mobile virtual cellular network, including the moto g6, the LG G7 ThinQ, and the LG V35 ThinQ.
These phones share a few things in common: large screens, expandable storage, and a camera that supports portrait mode. But they represent different tiers of performance, features, and pricing.
This phone features a 5.7″ edge-to-edge display. It has 32GB of built-in storage, and you can add up to another 128GB via a microSD card. What’s more, the phone has a battery that’s slated to last some 26 hours of use on a full charge. Its TurboPower charging feature can pack hours of battery life in just a few minutes.
The G7 is a mid-tier handset that retails for $749. Its main features include a 6.1″ edge-to-edge bright yet battery-efficient display and a built-in Boombox speaker that’s said to deliver a rich, powerful audio experience with deep bass. The phone has a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left side so you can access Google Assistant and Google Lens via a press. It also has dual 16MP cameras to deliver high-quality photos.
LG V35 ThinQ
This is a top-tier phone with best-in-class features while remaining lightweight. Details of the handset are still sketchy, but it has an OLED display and comes with 64GB of built-in storage. Its microSD slot can support cards of up to 2TB. The phone has a high-performance processor and 6 GB of RAM.
Both LG phones are available for pre-order next month and come with a $50 service credit.
This is an exciting development for fans of Project Fi, which, by the way, is excellent cell service, especially for those who often travel aboard. Before this, the cell service has been available to only eight Android phones, including the Moto X4, the Android One Moto X4, the Pixel & Pixel XL, the Pixel 2 & the Pixel 2 XL, the Nexus 6P, and the Nexus 5X.
