$399 Android One Moto x4 Is the Newest Project Fi Handset

Good news for budget-conscious individuals who want to try Google's Project Fi: the company just added the $399 Android One Moto x4 to its lineup.

Project Fi combines Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular into a virtual network with better coverage than any one of the three offers individually. Android One, meanwhile, is a line of low-cost Android devices.

Many users have requested "more options for high-quality, affordable devices that work with Project Fi," Project Fi Product Manager Joy Xi and Director for Android partner programs, Jon Gold, write in a blog post.

The Android One Moto x4 will be the first Android One handset available in the US, Android Central points out. Like all other Android One phones, this one "runs a pure Android experience, with a clean software design and a carefully curated set of preinstalled apps to give you just what you need," Xi and Gold write. It works with Google Assistant and offers video calls via Google Duo.

Those who purchase the Android One Moto x4 will also have access to the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android Oreo, before the end of the year. And, "Android One Moto x4 will be among the first to receive an upgrade to Android P," according to Xi and Gold.

In terms of features, the phone has three cameras — a 12MP and 8MP dual camera system on the back for "wide-angle photos and detailed portraits" and a 16MP selfie shooter on the front with "adaptive low light mode." There's also free high-quality storage from Google Photos, so "you never have to worry about running out of space," Xi and Gold write.

It also features Motorola's TurboPower charging technology, which promises to give you up to six hours of juice in just 15 minutes.

The Android One Moto x4 is available for pre-order now in the US in either black or blue. As part of its trade-in program, Google will give you up to $165 for select Nexus devices, plus an extra $50 in Project Fi credit if you purchase the device before Oct. 5.

Project Fi earned an "excellent" rating in PCMag's review, though we said it's "still a niche choice because of its very limited selection of phones." Today's announcement makes that less of an issue.

Huawei is about to unveil its brand new flagship smartphone — the P20. While many details have already leaked, this is going to be an interesting launch. The company chose to unveil its new device at the magnificent Grand Palais in Paris. This is the first time Huawei chooses Paris to launch a major new device. Carriers and retailers in the U.S. have stopped selling Huawei devices. That might be the reason why the press conference is happening in Europe. Huawei is now the second largest phone manufacturer in the world behind Samsung and just slightly above Apple. The P10 was a great device, so it’s clear that many Android fans will pay attention to today’s launch.
