VoLTE is Voice over LTE which refers to voice calling on LTE network, ViLTE is Video over LTE which refers to native Video calling without need of apps like Skype, whatsapp, Duo, etc.

No it’s ViLTE (Video over LTE). Gionee has updated all its 4G phones that support VoLTE to also support Video calls over LTE. Many of the Chinese phones still do not support video calling over LTE.
