Update that adds HD Voice capability rolling out to Vodafone-branded Galaxy Note II in Australia
Vodafone customers rocking a Galaxy Note II in Australia will now have access to high-definition voice quality in telephone calls, as a new update is rolling out for the device that adds HD Voice capability. Some customers have been able to use Vodafone’s HD voice feature before through a simple hack, but now with the official update everyone will be able to make calls that make you feel like you’re standing right next to the person you’re talking to.
The update (N7105TDVDMB2) is a whopping 1.86GB in size, and hence isn’t available over-the-air, leaving Samsung’s Kies PC Suite as the only option for updating. A word of warning though – Vodafone’s official blog post mentions that the update will restore your Galaxy Note II to factory defaults , so it would be a good idea to backup everything (including the content on your internal storage, such as photos), either via Kies or by using backup apps from the Play Store.
