We think the VoLTE enabling update should be available very soon for the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Note 8. And here’s a hoping that the upcoming Pixel 3 handsets will support it too, although, given the fact that they won’t be sold at Sprint, it may not be available right off the bat.

Sprint is working towards making all devices compatible with its VoLTE network to extend its services to customers throughout the country. However, it may yet take some time albeit having taken a step in the right direction.
