Elephones S7 and S9 are supporting VoLTE 4G


Both of the new Elephone phone models are with us for a week already and even though you could think you know everything about it already, maybe some revealed specs and information can still surprise you.

Just like today’s revelation that both devices are equipped with VoLTE support, which is a technology allowing the voice services be used through the LTE network. VoLTE has more than three times bigger capacity for the voice and data transfer than 3G and more than six times bigger than old dinosaur 2G networks.

4G users should get quite some benefits using the VoLTE with up to 90 % shorter connection wait times and higher quality call sound. And the difference should be even more significant with S7, S9video calls, where it’s theoretically 100 % boost for the quality.

Aside of that Elephones S7 and R9 also support the 4G+ internet, which could be twice as fast as the ordinary 4G. But keep in mind not all mobile carriers have such modern service and networks available for the customers, so you need to keep track if your own carrier has the VoLTE and 4G+ support enabled.

And the number of reservations for Elephone S7 and R9 went up quite a lot too in the past 5 days hitting almost the 200.000 mark. You can find more information here or alternatively here.

    Since they don’t have to pay any designer, they should sell that cheaper. Or maybe they have to pay patents to HTC and Samsung, among all the rip off they use to do… Very sad

    Well it is nice but it won’t still work bcos if you calling with someone even other side needs to have volte smartphone support otherwise it is useless.. and many hasn’t ..

    4G + ?? Someone knows explain me better about this technology? Italians operators, will support it?
    Congratulations to Elephone who decided to support it!

      In some big cities yes, Vodafone and Tim use it in Milan for example

    I have a friend with a samsung S6 and he uses VoLTE calls and is a crazy cool. You can also share files during the call and the audio is clear and crisp as ever (heard in person).
    The only constraint is that you can only use between 2 smartphones that use the same technology and with supported operators.

    This new VoLTE technology is really important.. Now with old technology you see signal to drop in 3G during call and need to wait seconds before connect to the person for speak.. I hope this VoLTE will be implemented soon in all European Countries!

    Yeah voLTE is very important after the hype of 4G without it a 4G SIM can not make calls. So many devices rolled out this with new updates, good to know that it would be pretty given in both of this smartphones.

      Again lol….VoLTE needs operator integration… if there’s no carrier integration, it won’t work…even though this phone has the capability of VoLTE, without integration, it won’t work, and hence no VoLTE. Elephone doesn’t even have Google certification, so how can it have a carrier integration of volte. So…..get the facts right… this website is purely.a marketing platform of these few phones….very amateur journalism….

    4G+ technology is a standard that allows you to navigate, theoretically, at much speed incurred over current fourth-generation connections.
    Theoretically, in fact, smartphones, tablets, and all the products compatible with these networks (also known as LTE Advanced), can reach the maximum threshold of 225 Mbps download, compared to the current standard of 150 Mbps, with LTE phones.
    Put simply, you will be able to download 1 GB file in less than one minute, and upload a file of half Gb (eg video) in a couple of minutes.
    This technology is now a reality in many parts of Italy and is constantly expanding!!

      Lol..Cat 6 requires carrier aggregation, so please tell me which operator in which country will elephone work and achieve Cat 6 download speeds?? Stop making up bullshit…

    voLTE approaches voice service (control and media planes) being delivered as data flows within the LTE data bearer. So it would be better to have better call quality.

    This is the map of 4G+ coverage in Italy, there are not many places, but Vodafone said that the areas are constantly expanding!
    Elephone with this choice has been working for the future!

    Yep! Thanks for this info. voLTE is very much important but will it work on it? Like P9000 doesn’t support Android Pay lack of Googles certification. Hoping for the best case I already have decided to go for S7. Let’s see.

    Guys and girls, why you are not checking the latest videos related to Elephone S7 and R9 , now you can see them both compared in this video:

    Looking at the map, you realize that perhaps indeed it is still too early for such a technology, at least in Italy, but it is potentially a very interesting feature and I’m glad that it has been integrated.

    Wow, it’s so great that they have decided to include 4G+ support in these two devices! This just adds up to making people want to have both of these phones – S7 and R9. Great addition to the specifications!

    Great news, the faster the internet, the better and i love that the company threw support for that in their new models (which of course is kinda mandatory xD). Amazing news 🙂

    the future is here and now, so why not have that fast internet when you really need it. now, we need our network providers to support it as well so great news for people whose carriers already provide 4g plus

    4G+ is a must have for a 2016 smartphone, i would have been surprised if they hadn’t added this to the impressive list of pros for both of these models. can’t wait to hear more about s7 and r9 ?
