Google today indicated that Project Fi will be accessible from reasonably priced handsets before too long. At the moment, Project Fi requires people to use the Google Pixel or Pixel XL, or the Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X smartphones. The Pixel XL has a price tag that reaches as high as $870. Responding to questions posed to its Project Fi Twitter account, Google said, "We hear you loud and clear. Keep an eye out for a new Fi-compatible device at a mid-tier price from one of our partners later this year." Google didn't say which phone maker might be involved, nor did it name the potential handset in question. Google recently expanded the availability of Project Fi to its G Suite customers. The two bits of news together show Google may be taking the fledgling service more seriously.

I was going to GUESS Motorola...

...but then I read it would be the X4 on another site. My guess was base on the fact that the G4 and G5 Plus have had the radios for all U.S. carriers, so it would just be a software update to make them compatible with Fi.

Still doesn't provide much incentive to switch since unlimited is currently back in vogue with the big 4.
