Huawei Nova 3 Software Update Brings ViLTE Support and April Security Patch

Huawei Nova 3 now supports ViLTE, or video over LTE.

  • Huawei Nova 3 is receiving a new software update
  • ViLTE support rolled out alongside April security patch
  • Currently supported on Vodafone Idea, Jio and Airtel

Huawei Nova 3 was launched in July last year in India. The smartphone flaunts a striking glass unibody design and sports the company's high-end HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC under the hood. Now, the Chinese smartphone giant has announced that the Huawei Nova 3 is getting a new software update that will enable support for ViLTE (Video over LTE). The new software update will help users to make video calls and voice chats services without the need for a third party application. Additionally, the update also brings along Google's April security patch for improved system security.

ViLTE is a conversational video service, which is based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem core network. What it does is that it removes the need of a third-party app to take advantage of video telephony services. As stated in the press release, Huawei Nova 3 (Review) is receiving the new update with support for ViLTE, but soon the service will be incorporated in all Huawei devices as well.

The ViLTE new service is currently supported on three major carriers in the country; Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel. A separate tariff plan may be required to take advantage of the service.
