    1. Nokia 1 only has GSM, HSPA and VoLTE connectivity features together with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and hotspot wireless features. The VoLTE connectivity feature only allows it to work with Voice but not Data meaning you can use it for calls but not Faiba data connectivity.

    1. Hello there reader, thank you for your question. The Huawei Y7 2019 is a DUAL 4G compatible phone but does not support LTE connectivity support so it cannot work.
