Google Adds 3 Phones To The Project Fi Lineup: LG G7 ThinQ, LG V35 ThinQ, And Moto G6


Google is expanding its Project Fi phone lineup with three new devices, one of which is the budget-friendly Moto G6 that goes hand in hand with the affordable cellular service.

As for the other additions, they are the high-end LG G7 ThinQ and the recently announced LG V35 ThinQ.

Moto Adds Another Phone To The Roster

Before this, the only non-Google phone that can be used on Project Fi was the Moto X4, which stands alongside the Nexus and Pixel families.

Now the Moto G6 has a Snapdragon 450 under the hood, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of native storage that can be expanded by up to 128 GB via a microSD card. There's a 3,000 mAh battery to keep the lights on, and a 5.7-inch LCD display with a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution.

It's an all-glass phone with a front fingerprint scanner, and on the bottom, it sports a USB-C port and a headphone jack. It has a dual-camera setup on the rear that consists of a 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensor, while on the front, it has an 8-megapixel snapper with LED flash.

It usually goes for $249, but when bought on Project Fi, the price drops to $199. There's also the option to pay $8.29 a month for 24 months. For anyone who's already sold to it, it's already up for preorder.

LG Gets 2 Phones Into Project Fi

The LG G7 ThinQ and LG V35 ThinQ are two top-of-the-line phones among the current crop, both boasting Snapdragon 845 chips paired with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in storage that's expandable by up to 2 TB.

Going by those factors, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between the two, but the distinction lies in their displays and batteries. The LG G7 ThinQ is equipped with a 6.1-inch LCD display with a 3,120 x 1,440 resolution and a notch and a 3,000 mAh pack, while the LG V35 ThinQ has a notch-less 6.0-inch 2,880 x 1,440 pOLED screen and a 3,300 mAh cell.

Unlike the Moto G6, they don't come cheap. The LG G7 ThinQ is priced at $749 or $31.21 a month, and the LG V35 ThinQ is at $899 or $37.46 a month. They're also not available for preorder just yet, but they're expected to go up sometime next month.

On an interesting note, the LG V35 ThinQ was said to be an exclusive phone to AT&T, but with Google's announcement, it's clear that that isn't the case at all.
