Airtel VoLTE Support Now Rolling Out to Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 via MIUI 8 Stable Update

Follow Us

The best budget smartphone of 2017 (until now), the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is picking up a new MIUI 8 stable software update, which brings the VoLTE support for the Bharti Airtel users in India. However, Airtel doesn't support the VoLTE technology currently, but the country's largest telecom network is rumoured to roll out VoLTE support in coming days.


Nearly three months ago, we reported that Airtel is testing the VoLTE service in various handsets and the roll out was expected to happen by the end of April. Unfortunately, Airtel did not launch the service to general public. Furthermore, a few days back, many of our readers claimed that they had received an Airtel carrier update on Apple iPhones, which added VoLTE support. That said, we didn't receive any carrier update in the Apple iPhone SE. Maybe, Airtel is looking to roll out the feature slowly in every circle.

It is also said that Airtel has deployed enough hardware required for a possible roll out. Also, Gopal Vittal, the CEO of the company had already informed investors that Airtel would move to VoLTE for voice calls in the major markets, and India is the largest market for Airtel. Ever since Reliance Jio entered the Indian market with support for VoLTE, the craze for the service immensely increased because it uses data to make a voice call.


Also, the VoLTE supported phones list has grown in the past six months. Moreover, VoLTE is a key for Airtel going forward, at least to compete with the newcomer Reliance Jio. The tariff plans of Airtel will become cheap as well after the VoLTE rollout (our assumption).

Speaking about the upgrade for the Redmi Note 4, it weighs approximately 30MB and comes with version number: V8.2.10.0.MCFMIDL. Besides adding the VoLTE support, the update fixes numerous issues in the smartphone such as camera app crashes in some occasions, notification shade issues, etc. Moreover, the update comes with the May security patch fixes.
