Google Is Adding LG G7, V35, and Moto G6 To Its Project Fi Phone Lineup

Google’s Project Fi phone lineup just got bigger with the addition of three new smartphones.

Google first announced Project Fi, its first foray into cellular services. It was previously an invite-only service which eventually became open to all users.

If you have not heard of it, you’re not alone as it was only available to the US market. It does however, offer one of the best deals in mobile. Users pay $20 per month for unlimited calls and texts, plus $1 per 100MB of data used.

One common complaint however, was the lack of compatible phones to use with the carrier. Project Fi previously sold three phones including the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and an Moto X4 Android One variant. Either buy one of those three or use an unlocked version of the Pixel or Nexus series.

Now Google has announced more devices for users to choose from. These are the LG G7 ThinQ, the just-announced LG V35 ThinQ, and the Moto G6.

The Moto G6 is currently available for pre-order through the Project Fi website for $199. Users can also opt to pay $8.29 per month for 24 months.

Both G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ will come to Project Fi next month. They are priced at $749 (or $31.21/month) and V35 is $899 or (or $37.46/month) respectively.

In case you don’t know, LG Electronics has released a teaser photo of the G7 ThinQ’s boombox speaker feature. A quick check of the teaser photo showed that the boombox speaker occupies the entire phone.

 

Apart from this, there have several speculations that suggest that LG’s G7 flagship device would feature DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. If such rumor is true, then you might be able to hear a 3D sound experience by using the phone’s 3.5 mm headphone jack. The G6 successor would also come with Hi-FI Quad DAC to have a precise audio accuracy.

 

The G6 successor is slated to be unveiled on May 2, and as earlier announced by LG, the latest flagship has a super bright LCD. The phone uses an LCD technology that offers a brightness of 1,000 nits. It is also expected that the company’s latest flagship to come with a 6.1-inch QHD+ screen with 3120×1440 screen resolution.

Codenamed Judy: LG To Launch Its Flagship Smartphone In June?

LG is planning to launch a new flagship smartphone. The company’s new smartphone is called Judy. The new phone will be launched in June, sources said.

Rumors have it that Judy will have high-end specifications and features. LG, however, did not reveal the exact name of the upcoming smartphone.

 

Judy marks the death of LG G7?

 

VentureBeat reported that LG’s upcoming smartphone would be called as the LG G7. This particular detail was revealed by Evan Blass, a reliable and a prolific leaker. What we know so far is that LG is planning to launch “Judy” in June.

 

Blass sourced his information from a person privy to LG’s plan. Based on the leaked details, LG’s new phone will have a new design and concept. This includes the information that LG’s Judy is expected to be 6.1-inch display smartphone. The company’s new phone will have a new screen panel called as the MLCD+ panel.

 

The reason why LG opted to have an MLCD+ panel because it consumes less power. The present LCD screens that the company is using consume a lot of power. And MLCD+ panel displays 800-nit brightness but consuming 35 percent of power only.

 

LG’s new phone features powerful specs and features. One of the leaked details is that Judy will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Regarding specs, the phone will have either a 4 gigabytes of random access memory and 64 gigabytes of internal memory.

 

Also, LG’s new phone boasts its military-grade IP68 protection; it will have 16 MP dual rear cameras, a stereo speaker, wireless charging feature, among others.

LG To Launch iPhone X-inspired Phone and Galaxy S9 Rival?

The Cupertino-based Apple Inc. and its archrival Samsung were both successes in the smartphone market. But mobile company LG said it won’t be replicating the success that Samsung is enjoying right now as it would launch its LG G7 soon.

 

What is obvious right now is that LG is kept in the dark. Mobile users haven’t heard of the company’s plan for a long time. Now, a rumor has surfaced recently that LG’s top honcho has reportedly ordered the revision of a smartphone-LG G7-that would compete with Apple’s iPhone X and Samsung’s Galaxy S9.

Here’s what we know so far

 

BGR reported that the company’s CEO and Vice Chairman Jo Seong-jin, has expressed intent to revise the LG G7. Details of the LG G7’s revision until now is still sketchy, but a spokesperson of the LG said that Jo Seong-jin had ordered the G7 team to stop the development and conduct a “review” of the LG G7 from scratch.

 

At CES 2018, Jo announced during a media briefing that LG would unveil a new smartphone when necessary.

 

“We will unveil new smartphones when it is needed,” Jo said at CES during a press conference. “But we will not launch it just because other rivals do.”

 

If LG would push its plan, this means that mobile fans of LG would be able to see a new phone coming soon. This is because it would probably reset the LG G7’s launching back to April. For some, the company’s plan is confusing because it would be impossible that a mobile company could scratch and release a phone in just three months.

 

“Right after the vice chairman announced at the Consumer Electronics Show last week, a direct order was sent down to the working-level officials to start over,” an LG official said who was privy of the plan.

“A new decision on possible launch date will be released around the Lunar New Year holiday next month,” the LG official added.

 

Also, what we know is that the company’ soon-to-be-released smartphone would feature an all-screen design, a dual camera, and the possibility of using iris scanning.
