Smart first to provide HD voice calls!

Wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) continues to break new ground in voice call technology as it makes available the new High Definition voice call feature to its mobile phone subscribers. Similar to hearing the difference between AM and FM radio stations, HD voice makes it easier for callers to recognize commonly misheard sounds such as “s” from “f”, “m” from “n”, and “p” from “t”. More details after the jump.

“If you and the caller happen to be in areas where our network is HD voice-enabled and if you have an HD voice-capable handset running on 3G, you will be able to hear the difference instantly,” said PLDT Smart Technology Group Head Rolando Peña.

HD Voice is initially available in select areas in Makati City and Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and can be enjoyed on smartphones which are capable of Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB).

 “HD Voice uses improved modulation techniques which allow for the transmission and reception of crystal clear audio using the same amount of bandwidth as a regular voice call—all you need is an active 3G connection and you will automatically be able to enjoy this new feature,” Peña added.

Handsets which are capable of utilizing AMR-WB technology include popular smartphones such as the Smart Netphone 701, the Nokia E7, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

To check if your phone is AMR-WB-capable, check the specifications of your handset.

“There is still no better way to convey human emotions than with voice,” said Pena. “This shows that our super-charged network not only improves mobile Internet speeds, but call quality as well,” he ended.
