Vodafone India has announced the launch of its 4G VoLTE services in India. The service is now available in selected cities including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Surat, and Ahmedabad. The company has also said that the 4G VoLTE service will soon be launched in two more regions – Karnataka and Kolkata.
Vodafone India has added that the VoLTE service would quickly reach other parts of India in multiple phases in few months. The Vodafone users with 4G VoLTE enabled smartphones residing in these regions can now enjoy HD voice calls starting from today.
Vodafone has already started rolling out VoLTE service in Mumbai and Delhi NCR recently. Vodafone VoLTE service works precisely like Airtel VoLTE and won’t bother anyone who is still using a smartphone that does not support VoLTE.
Vodafone highlighted that even if the network drops to 2G or 3G, the call won’t be disconnected. Vodafone has named its VoLTE service as “Vodafone Super VoLTE” and only selected smartphones will support Vodafone Super VoLTE:
- OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3
- Huawei Honor View 10, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 pro
- Xiaomi Redmi 4, Mi Mix 2 and Mi Max 2
- Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro and Galaxy J7 Nxt
Apple smartphones will get the Vodafone Super VoLTE support after a small patch which Apple is working on. The patch will be provided via an upgrade to the Apple users that is expected to arrive by the end of March. Vodafone is said to be testing its VoLTE service extensively for several more smartphones. Vodafone is expected to expand VoLTE coverage to 13 circles soon.
