According to JTL’s Faiba 4G website, at least 22 Android smartphones sold in the country support both VoLTE and data services. On the same website, JTL has also included over 100 Android phones that support Faiba 4G, but only for data services.
Conspicuously missing from the list are Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 and Redmi 7. These two haven’t been selling in the country for long, which partly explains it. However, a quick look at their official specs as provided by Xiaomi, they do support the required band 28 for Faiba 4G.
The Redmi 7, according to the specs sheet, has been confirmed to further support dual VoLTE, meaning both SIM cards can simultaneously take advantage of the feature in the same phone.
As for the Redmi Note 7, the specs sheet also confirms support for band 28 and while there’s no mention of dual VoLTE, we’d like to believe it’s just an error.
The Redmi Note 7 is a superior variant to the Redmi 7 and thus it packs specs and features that are even more powerful, hence the higher price tag of Kshs 18,232.
