Regarding the Wi-Fi calling the company said:
The Wi-Fi calling feature will let users make calls directly from their smartphone to any other mobile or landline via a Wi-Fi network and without the use any third-party app. Moreover, as users move from Wi-Fi into a non-Wi-Fi location, the call is seamlessly moved to their telecom network. This is great news especially for users who face network coverage and quality issues indoors. Moreover, users on the above Nokia smartphones can also make Vo-Wi-Fi calls to a person who doesn’t have the feature enabled on their phone.
