Project Fi confirms a new mid-tier partner device will support its service later this year

  |   Tech News

Project Fi on Twitter made a very interesting announcement this morning when asked about cheaper devices for the MVNO: a "new Fi-compatible device".

The Fi Twitter account quoted a Tweet complaining about the lack of “more ok-priced phones.” This complaint is quite valid given how, at the moment, the Pixel and Pixel XL are the only new Fi-compatible devices available. Last year’s Nexus 5X and 6P were given a discount on Fi following the Pixel launch, but are now listed as “out of stock.” They were still in stock as recent as last month.

The Information was the first to report earlier this year that Android One was coming to the US. Following that, 9to5Google reported that Google was working on phones with at least two partners and at least one would be coming later this year —and would be compatible with Project Fi. This device would come in at the $300-$400 range and certainly lines up with the “mid-tier price” that Fi mentioned today.
