Google’s project Fi tips is brings a new device offering service. on Twitter it was suggested that a new Fi-compatible device will be available later this year at mid-tier price. This means there is a new device coming that is never seen before and it may also mean Google will use the device that existing already and the new refers to the service alone.
The best way for Google to bring to the public a mid-tier device with Project Fi is to tap a partner with whom Google has worked in the past many times before. Thus, instead of creating a new device, it will make sense to team up with Motorola for Project Fi for such a launch. The prominent name in the Smartphone mid-tier prowess in the past several years is Motorola and the new owners are Lenovo, and so Google has all the reasons to see this happening.
The company has worked with HTC recently with their Google Pixel devices. The timing may be perfect for LG to come back in this fold now as they do not have any major Nexus Smartphone on the block and LG’s moving away, unless, they are going for the LG X Charge.
The LG X Charge with Comcast’s new wireless service Xfinity was launched this week. The LG X Charge features a 5.5-inch HD display, meaning it’s big, but the display is less sharp and so it is anticipated to be available for a lower price. The X Charge selling point from LG’s view is its 4,500mAh battery that is massive.
If on the other hand the deal is made with Motorola, the Project Fi team will likely go with a device like Moto E or Moto G. Moto G is closer to the mid-range now while Moto E is sticking to the least expensive tier of phones from the Moto-maker. We’ll see soon enough – stick around our Project Fi tag portal for more!
