Samsung J5 2017 Wi-Fi Calling

Does anyone know if Wi-Fi Calling is going to be rolled out to the Samsung J5 2017?

I've followed the steps in the MyO2 app, and it actually says I should be able to uses Wi-Fi Calling, however the option just isn't within the settings menu.

The phone I have meets the criteria for Wi-Fi Calling, as the firmware details include the required "O2U" digits...

So what is going on? Anyone know if O2 are just sandbagging on this functionality, or is there a real issue with this? Anyone else experienced this?

Re: Samsung J5 2017 Wi-Fi Calling

As yet the J5 isn’t on the compatible phone list https://www.o2.co.uk/connectivity/wifi-and-4g-calling but we wouldn’t know o2’s plans to introduce it either.
Maybe @Chris_K would know?
