Google Fi now has nationwide 5G network coverage in the US. To go along with the faster network, the MVNO carrier has started selling 5G smartphones directly through its website, and the collection includes six Galaxy smartphones from Samsung.
You can now buy the Galaxy A71 5G, Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Note 20 5G, and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G through Google Fi’s website. For now, the Google-owned cellular carrier is selling Samsung smartphones at MSRP rates, but you can get up to $300 worth of credits, depending on which device you end up buying. To receive the credit, you’ll have to activate the smartphone within 30 days of shipment and use Google Fi’s service for 60 days using the same account. These rebates apply to both 24-month financing and full payments.
This is the first time Google Fi is selling Samsung smartphones directly. It uses T-Mobile’s network as its backbone (since Sprint’s 5G network was killed after the merger), so these new 5G Galaxy devices support signals on 2.5GHz and 600MHz or 5G NR bands n41 and n71. You’ll get 5G signals on Google Fi’s network wherever there’s access to T-Mobile’s 5G network.
