Airtel VoLTE Support on Redmi Note 4:
There is a reason why Airtel VoLTE service is creating a hype on the Internet. Till date, only Jio had released its VoLTE service in India. Airtel seems to step up their game by launching the Airtel VoLTE service too. VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE (Long Term Evolution). In simple words, when a call is made over a 2G or a 3G network, a certain amount of network bandwidth is given to that call as a pipeline. On a VoLTE network, voice calls are broken up into packets of information, sent over the full data pipeline and then reconstructed at the receiver’s end. The difference is that in the VoLTE network, voice information can be carried over a higher bandwidth pipe, which results in better voice quality. Now, in the Redmi Note 4’s update, Airtel VoLTE service is featured in it. Although there is no official statement from Airtel, it is likely that Airtel will launch its Airtel VoLTE on other VoLTE supported smartphones soon.
