Google announced today that Project Fi users will soon have a few more device choices. Three new phones will work with Google’s wireless service: the LG G7 ThinQ, the just-announced LG V35 ThinQ, and the Moto G6.

Up until now, customers could only choose between Pixel phones, Nexus phones, and the Moto X4. The Moto G6 costs $199 through Project Fi and is currently available to preorder through the Fi website, while the G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ will come to Project Fi next month with a $50 Fi service credit for each preorder.

The V35 was initially rumored to be an AT&T-exclusive phone, but that clearly is no longer the case. The phone, which was announced in tandem with this Project Fi news, features a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and runs Android Oreo 8.0. It also has a slightly larger battery than the G7 and an OLED screen. For those differences, you’ll have to pay $900.

The addition of these phones to the Fi lineup is definitely appreciated, as not everyone wants to buy a Pixel. Now, Fi subscribers get other flagship-level choices and the affordable Moto G6. Plus, now Project Fi users have a notch option so they can blend in with the crowd.
