Voice over LTE reportedly launching in South Korea tomorrow on Samsung Galaxy S3

South Korean carrier SK Telecom will reportedly tomorrow become one of the first in the world to offer a voice over LTE service. While bigger U.S. networks like Verizon are testing the technology, SK Telecom will introduce the "HD voice" service tomorrow and begin selling Samsung Galaxy S3 phones with the feature built in. 

An update for existing S3 owners on the network is said to be arriving "within the month," and will apparently be featured on most forthcoming LTE phones the carrier will offer. While some may not necessarily see the benefits -- we don't seem to use the phone to call as much as we used to -- it's inevitable that such technology will eventually roll out across LTE markets around the world.
