Revolution First To Demo VoLTE for LG [MWC]


We’re about to attend the LG press conference at Mobile World Congress 2011 and most of LG’s cats are out of the bag. This morning they’ve already showed off the LG Optimus 3D and Optimus Pad at their booth and the Android area, and the Optimus Black and Optimus 2X were already known entities. What’s left to discuss at their press conference?

In a press release just issued, LG announced they’ll be the first to demo VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) using the LG Revolution. We’re pretty excited for the technology, but I can’t say it’s the most sexy thing to show off at the event. Personally, I’m looking forward to hearing every detail of the Optimus 3D including content offerings, 3D games and apps, and more.

Check out the press release below, and we’re currently processing our Optimus 3D hands-on footage so stay tuned for that!

Higher Quality Voice Over LTE Technology to be Unveiled for First Time at MWC

Barcelona, Feb. 14, 2011 – LG Electronics (LG) is aiming to up the mobile market ante with the world’s first demonstration of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Video call over LTE at this year’s Mobile World Congress on the LG Revolution(TM), the first 4G LTE smartphone from LG.

Emerging from the GSMA initiative to create a global standard for delivering voice and messaging services over LTE, the “One Voice” protocol is expected to be widely adopted by mobile makers in the future with LG at the forefront of introducing the new technology to consumers.

“By showcasing the power of LTE, we hope consumers will better understand how fast mobile technology can be and help drive the industry closer toward this exciting reali-ty,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Having been involved with Verizon in the joint development of the VL600 LTE modem in 2010, LG is well positioned to continue to lead the development of LTE technology.”

Visitors to Mobile World Congress 2011 will be able to experience the faster and seam-less high-quality voice and video calling via LTE at the LG booth (#8B178 in Hall 8, Fira de Barcelona). Superseding both 3G and Wi-Fi speeds, LG’s LTE technology will ultimately change the way people make calls by utilizing established network carriers to provide HD voice quality through AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) wideband technology, while allowing users to maintain their existing phone numbers.

Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, the LG Revolution(TM) running Android 2.2 features a large 4.3-inch screen and complete support for streaming, playing and recording HD video. The phone will be available in the U.S. in the first half of the year.

  1. I wonder how the cell plans will be done. LTE sees everything as a packet… so, how are the minutes going to be counted?
