Sprint will introduce HD Voice, its network optimization tool that enables higher audio quality on voice calls, across the US later this summer. Speaking at the Oracle Industry Connect conference, CEO Dan Hesse promised that Sprint HD Voice will launch in July.
Though Sprint had expected to deliver HD Voice earlier this year and has managed to launch in a handful of markets, nationwide deployment will finally occur within the next few months. Customers in areas with optimized networks and compatible devices will be able to hear and speak with noticeably better sound quality. As Light Reading reports, most phone calls today occur over four octaves. HD Voice supports seven. It also adds noise cancellation to limit the effect of background noise.
HD Voice will require a software update on some phones but many devices have already been made to support the enhanced calling option. The original HTC One received the update in July 2013 and other phones that are compatible will be clarified when Sprint delivers HD Voice everywhere in July 2014.source: Light Reading, via: Phandroid
