List of 4G phones in India with VoLTE support for use on Reliance Jio


While many were expecting Reliance Jio to launch VoLTE (voice over LTE) phones priced as low as Rs 5,000, it is the Samsung Galaxy On5 that has emerged as India’s cheapest VoLTE-enabled phone.


As more and more 4G phones have started becoming available, it has become more difficult to keep up a list of all the devices that work on Jio’s network.

Here are a few shortcuts to figure out whether your phone has support for Jio-LTE.

There are two things you have to look out for — support for Jio bands, and support for 4G voice or VoLTE.

RJio operates its LTE network on three bands — 3,5 and 40. Out of these, band 40 (2300 MHz TDD) gives the best speed, but has the worst coverage, while band 5 (850 MHz) gives the best coverage, but offers speeds of only around 1.5-5 Mbps. Band 3 (1800 MHz) offers speeds of around 5-6 Mbps, compared to 10-70 Mbps on Band 40.

Most of the 4G phones being launched in India since June 2016 have support for all three bands, but you can still make sure before you buy the device. The band with the highest number of supported devices is band 3, followed by band 40. Band 5 has the least number of supported devices.

The next thing to look for is support for 4G voice or Voice over LTE (VoLTE). This is NOT THERE on most of the devices built around Mediatek chipsets and introduced in 2015. That includes devices built on Helio X10, MediaTek MT6752, MT6732 etc.

However, some devices built on MediaTek MT6753 and 6735 do come with VoLTE support.

On the other hand, most of the devices built on MediaTek X20, MediaTek P10, Snapdragon 615, 616 and 617 come with support for VoLTE, though there are some that don’t have it.

Similarly, devices built on Snapdragon’s more up-to-date chipsets such as 415, 430, 650, 652, 820, 821 and 212 are very very likely to have built-in support for VoLTE.

Here is a comparison of some of the more popular models, ordered by price. Display resolution refers to the number of pixels (dots) on the screen — the higher this number, the more ‘clarity’ the display will have.

VoLTE refers to the ability of the phone to make voice calls without switching to a 3G or 2G network. Over 99% of the phones in India do not have the technology.

Unlike 2G and 3G, VoLTE sends voices as ‘packet data’, similar to Internet traffic and WhatsApp calls.

This means two things: First, there is no need to switch to 2G or 3G networks, and second, the voice quality can be much much higher than 2G and 3G.

However, being a new technology, the feature is not enabled on most phones even if they have 4G LTE.

UPDATE 2: The following are 4G-enabled phones that are listed by Reliance Jio as having support for the company’s 4G service. Please note that these handsets support 4G data, and may not support VoLTE. If they do not support VoLTE, you will have to use the second SIM to make voice calls, or use the Jio Join app to make voice calls. In other words, the following handsets are covered by the Jio Partner Preview offer, even if they don’t support VoLTE.

If you are planning to buy a new device, please do not use the following chart for reference. Instead look at the chart above.

Besides On5 — priced Rs 8,990 on Flipkart — the On7, priced Rs 10,990, also supports Voice over LTE.

Other phones that come with 4G voice support are Samsung Galaxy J5 (Rs 12,390) and J7 (Rs 13,401). Most of Samsung’s higher end models also support voice calling on 4G.

The LG G4 Stylus also supports VoLTE.

Recently launched 3rd generation Moto G and the Sony Xperia Z5 series are also reported to support VoLTE.

Phones containing recent chipsets from Qualcomm, such as Snapdragon 615, 617, 820 and so on also have hardware support for VoLTE. These models include Moto X Style and Play, Yu Yureka Plus etc. However, the feature may be turned off by the software and will require a manufacturer update for activation.

Meanwhile, Reliance Jio is all set to be the first operator to introduce the technology into India from the network side.

It will also launch LYF branded handsets with support for the calling feature, but they’re likely to cost over Rs 10,000.
