Thanks!

Unfotunatelly, Volte will be important in the future as a lot of carrier will stop or already stopped to provide mobilenet on 3G, only voice... So if somebody calls somebody then no internet during calls (sometimes it is needed like Waze)... But a solution could be Viber, Whatsapp etc...)

4g works, just enable LTE from network settings, VoLTE related stuffs will never work on AOSP, as we have exynos :)

Man, I wanna work on the project too. We have to steal some kernel extensions from the A-only GSI Vendor as OpenGL, Vulkan are somewhat broken and camera is not working. The OneUI 2.0 GSI does see the phone as a Galaxy M20 and therefore not allowing for Always On Display, a feature that can't be missing, and that is the case due to the Galaxy M20 being a TFT LCD phone, not a OLED one... I don't quite know what you did, since I cannot boot with modified build.prop, to report the right phone model, the right hardware version, and the right CPU, since there is Exynos 7885 in the A8, and not the Exynos 7904. Anyway, I would like to work on the project. Maybe we get OneUI 2.5 on this thing and get the OpenGL (which is buggy - runs Minecraft @18fPS when it should exceed 50, and Dolphin crashes instantly) and Vulkan (which is not supported at all in this vendor) to work properly.

How much will we have to wait? Is there anything we can do ourselves?

I don't quite like to see one doing the whole work by himself, so I would like to help. What's left to do? I have a linux machine set up and a phone to test modifications step by step. All I need is to know which modifications to add to current vendor build (I really need the good OpenGL+ Vulkan libraries).
