LG has unveiled the LG G3 Vigor, Canada’s first VoLTE-enabled smartphone. The phone is now available at Rogers for $0 on select 2-year Share Everything plans.
The G3 Vigor comes with a 5 inch IPS display with 1280*720 pixel resolution. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon.
The phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and uses GSM, LTE, HD Voice technologies. It packs a 8MP rear camera with laser auto focus and tap to shoot feature.
It also features a 1.3MP front camera with 8GB internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
The smartphone is juiced by a 2540mAh battery that claims to offer up to 17.5 hours of talk time and 26 days and 11 hours f standby time.
The G3 Vigor uses new VoLTE technology that gives clear and more natural sounding voice and video calls. Also the users can secure their smartphone with a code created by using a customized sequence of knocks on the display to wake and unlock the device.
The Smart Cleaning feature removes temporary files and infrequently used apps to free up space and keep your phone running fast.
Just like the G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G2 also support the VoLTE technology.
In September, American mobile carrier Verizon started rolling out voice over LTE service nationwide on the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G2.
To experience VoLTE, both parties on a call will need to be using a VoLTE-enabled Verizon smartphone.
On the iPhone side of the house, only the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support VoLTE.
Verizon and T-Mobile have deployed VoLTE nationally, but not all of their towers are equipped to support it. AT&T only rolled out VoLTE service in a limited number of markets.
