Nexus 6P Can’t Succeed Without Project Fi
The Nexus 6P was so successful that its supply quickly depleted and Google had decided to cease anymore production of the Nexus 6P devices.
Although the device was successful, it was constricted inside the borders of the United States, only. The device was held back from its full potential as it was only available in the country.
According to AnTuTu, the Nexus 6P was only a success in the country while Samsung devices, like the Galaxy S7, S6 or the Note 5, were making waves globally.
However, all hope is not lost. Google is currently working diligently on taking the Nexus brand into the global platform through its Project Fi carrier service.
Happy news for our international friends who have been dying to know what the fuss with the Nexus 6P is all about. This is especially since this device has been dominating headlines in many tech sites and forums.
Can’t Do Much
Started in 2015, the Project Fi is a carrier service that has only been growing. Now, it incorporates the infrastructure of T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
Thanks to T-Mobile’s strong international presence, the Project Fi has been catapulted into over 120 countries. On top of that, Google has affirmed that it will be working together with Three, Europe’s largest carrier service.
Unfortunately, conversion rates would result in higher prices in other countries. Forking out $10 per GB of data may seem reasonable in the US, but it may be exorbitant in other parts of the world.
Google has revealed that it is not aiming for the Project Fi to be a big international network; however, that could change with the Nexus program that only seems to be getting more popular.
So, it isn’t all that surprising to hear that Google is reportedly planning to market its HTC Nexus to US carriers. It sure seems that the tech giant is attempting to improve the availability of the device, while increasing its profitability, as well.
