Reliance Jio Happy New Year offer effect: More Lenovo K phones get VoLTE support.Lenovo India via Twitter
Reliance Jio MD Mukesh Ambani made a surprise announcement earlier this month, saying the free data incentive offered by the company would be extended by three months for its patrons.
Reliance Jio’s inaugural free welcome offer was supposed to end on December 31 2016, but with the launch of the Happy New Year offer, consumers can now enjoy high-speed internet for free until March 31 2017.
Reliance Jio subscribers are also entitled to get unlimited HD Voice (VoLTE: Voice-over-LTE), video calling and unlimited (9,000) SMS.
Soon after the announcement, Google released a new software update with VoLTE (Voice-over-LTE) support to its flagship Pixel phone series. Now, Lenovo has joined the ranks by rolling out a similar firmware to all its 2016-based K series.
This means owners of Lenovo K3 Note, K4 Note, Vibe K5, Vibe K5 Note, Vibe K5 Plus are now eligible to avail Reliance Jio 4G SIM and enjoy the Happy New Year offer.
The newly-released K6 Power and the soon-to-be-launched K6 Note are expected to come with VoLTE support out-of-the-box.
