BLU’s R1 HD has finally started receiving the update which brings it Band 12 support for T-Mobile alongside support for VoLTE (Voice over LTE).
Just to be clear, the update is with regard to the non-Prime members. In case you are not in the know, BLU launched the same update to folks who purchased the handset via Amazon Prime back in November 2016.
The update has only now made it to the handsets that weren’t purchased via Amazon Prime. Nevertheless, it’s good to see the update finally being rolled out to all the users.
As mentioned above, the update brings with it the support for T-Mobile’s band 12 which make for better indoor reception and improved range. The R1 HD also gets support for VoLTE.
While the changelog does mention that the OTA carries Android Security Updates, it fails to reveal specifics.
