Samsung has announced that they will be releasing a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE in South Korea, and the update will allow the Samsung Galaxy S III to use VoLTE (Voice Over LTE).
The global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies is supporting VoLTE with the GALAXY S III LTE model in Korea in August, to be followed by availability in global LTE markets, positioning Samsung at the forefront of the LTE market and mobile communications technology.
VoLTE uses an IP packet-based service for both voice and data, allowing for new multimedia services to be introduced, such as being able to convert from voice call to video call. It also offers more than twice the voice frequency of 3G and HD-level audio codec (AMR-WB), providing high quality voice calls comparable to having a direct conversation with someone in person.
You can find out more details about the software update over at Samsung Tomorrow, according to Samsung, this is the world’s first VoLTE smartphone, but yesterday we heard about the new handset from MetroPCS.
