New Phone Joins our Bring Your Own Phone Lineup

UPDATE: Introducing new phones from Samsung and Motorola!

The phones keep rolling in… We’re adding new phones to our bring your own phone lineup already! Every time we add a new phone to our bring your own phone option, we will update this blog with the new phone and highlight a few of the features. Let’s take a closer look:

Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+

View videos and images on a brilliant infinity display that Engadget calls “The best-performing smartphone display we have ever tested.” The Samsung Galaxy S8 captures great shots even in the dark with the F1.7 lens that brings in more light when there’s not enough. The camera takes multiple shots and combines them into one photo for crystal clear images. Unlock your phone with just a look with face recognition for heightened security.

It is important to reiterate that facial recognition, while convenient, can be only used for opening your Galaxy S8 or S8+ and currently cannot be used to authenticate access to Samsung Pay or Secure Folder.

  1. FYI- Moto Z2 Play w/free JBL Speaker Mod at Motorola website (week only). Speaker Mod should show free at checkout. I received email today from Motorola regarding this…don’t know if it’s special for people on mailing list or what. Anyways, thought I would pass along.

  2. Awesome that new phones are joining your supported list.

    Any plans for the Sony Xperia line?

    I wish phone makers didn’t make every phone bigger and bigger these days.

    It seems that right now the only phones in the sub 5" with up to date specs are the Sony Xperia X Compact and the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact which sadly Republic doesn’t support right now.

  3. Hi!

    Any plans for the Sony Xperia line?

    Not to my knowledge but we’re always looking at new devices so it’s a possibility.

    We do support the Pixel which is right at 5" and may add another phone in the near future with a similar screen size. The phones are getting HUGE however, so I feel your pain. I have smaller hands myself, so I’m always dropping my phone.

  4. im very interested in seeing the new Nokia 3310, i would love to get that thing on republic. it could work sooooo well for you!

  5. drm186 says:

    not see that phone on republic as of right now Republic hybrid VOIP/Cell requires a smartphone with at least Android 6.0 (or a custom build ROM in 5.1)

  6. What about the new Pixel 2 or Pixel XL 2?
