How to get Dual SIM Dual VoLTE on Nokia 7 Plus

The Nokia 7 Plus was launched during the MWC 2018 event back in February, and recently became available for sale, joining the latest slew of Android-powered Nokia smartphones produced by the new brand in charge, HMD Global. One of the most important features these new Nokia smartphones are touted with is the availability of fast software updates, and this has been followed to the letter so far. A new update is here for the Nokia 7 Plus, and amongst others, it brings with it a new and rare functionality; Dual SIM Dual VoLTE.

What is Dual SIM Dual VoLTE? It’s a new technology that allows you to use two 4G LTE connections actively at the same time on a smartphone. 99% of smartphones available now currently do not support this feature, but we expect this to change gradually as chip makers are now including support for the technology in their latest flagship processors.

So how come the Nokia 7 Plus is getting the feature from a mere software update? It’s simple; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, the processor powering the Nokia 7 Plus has native support for the technology, but the feature wasn’t included in the smartphone from launch, probably because of the need to quickly push the device into the market at that time.

Earlier this month, Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global’s chief product officer announced that the Nokia 7 Plus would get the feature soon, and now it’s here. Here’s how to get Dual SIM Dual VoLTE on the Nokia 7 Plus.
