When the Google Pixel and Pixel XL debuted, T-Mobile touted that both devices work great on its network. Now it looks like T-Mo has more news to share about the Pixels. T-Mobile CEO John Legere has taken to Twitter to tease that he’s got “BIG news” about T-Mobile and the Google Pixel. The news will be revealed today, but Legere teased that the Pixel “works great” on T-Mobile.

It’s unclear what T-Mobile might have planned for this Pixel news. It’d be surprising if T-Mo actually began offering the Pixels directly since Google’s ads tout the phones as being “Only on Verizon”, and that “exclusivity” hasn’t even been in effect for a month. When one person asked about T-Mobile carrying the Pixel, T-Mo responded by saying “We won’t be selling it directly but you can get it from Google and bring it to the magenta network.”
Perhaps some sort of monthly bill credit or other offer for consumers that buy a Pixel from Google and bring it to T-Mobile? We’ll have to wait and see, and thankfully, we won’t have to wait long.
What do you think T-Mobile and John Legere’s “BIG news” about the Pixel could be?
