Smartphones supporting Safaricom VoLTE and ViLTE

You will see a VoLTE logo on your phone, if it is compatible, before end of this week as Safaricom activates the VoLTE profile for all 4G customers

Please note that this is the list provided by Safaricom. It isn’t conclusive, as most 4G ready phones will support VoLTE automatically. But these are the assured ones currently. This list will be updated as time goes on. Do check if your device has the VoLTE logo appearing, and comment down below to help update this list.

Here’s the list:

  • Safaricom: Neon Ray, Neon Nova, Neon Lite, Neon Plus
  • Huawei: Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Huawei Y5 lite, Y5 2019, Y6 2019, Y7 2019, Huawei P30, P30 Lite, P30 Pro, P20, P20 Lite, P20 Pro

  • Have 4G enabled SIM Card
