T-Mobile CTO Neville today (that’s him above) announced that it’s bringing voice over LTE — that’s VoLTE — to Seattle for three Android smartphones. The lucky winners are the LG G Flex, Samsung Galaxy Light and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

This piggybacks off MetroPCS’ VoLTE implementation, and it works just like it sounds. Instead of phone calls going through the traditional circuit system, they’ll be placed over the LTE network. It’s not all that easy, and it’s just now starting to roll out. But it’s an important step.
