So will the Nexus 5 support VoLTE?
AT&T has said VoLTE starts deployment by the end of this year. Does anyone think the Nexus 5 will work on AT&T's VoLTE?
This thread doesn't have to be about speculation. This is XDA and I expect more technically from this forum. Let's think about this systematically. What is required for a phone to work on VoLTE? Is the LTE hardware enough? Probably not. I think we can all agree that the software has to support it. I've read that the LG Connect 4G on MetroPCS supports VoLTE since they have already deployed VoLTE and it is supported using that phone. So that means Android has had VoLTE since Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Was that custom software for the LG Connect or is there still code in Android supporting VoLTE? Is anyone knowledgeable to look at Android 4.3 source files to see evidence of VoLTE living there, in comparison to the Android source in the LG Connect? Maybe there are system files in Android that have VoLTE in their name. That would be a good clue.
Was there anything in the LG Connect's FCC documentation that specified VoLTE testing or specifications? Is this needed for VoLTE? Or is LTE testing alone enough since it is all the same from a physical frequency perspective?
I brought this topic up in another forum and I got some good responses. I just want to take it to the next level here with all the gear heads and XDA wizardry that lives here.
