LG announced another feature of their V20 smartphone, which is a successor to the LG V10. LG V20 will have a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter). According to LG, his feature will provide a much better audio playback experience. The new Quad DAC implementation is expected to reduce up to 50 percent ambient noise levels.
LG worked with ESS Technology to develop this Quad DAC, which will supposedly be the “lynchpin” for several multimedia-related features on the LG V20. ESS Technology is a leader in high performance audio devices. LG V10 had a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC for better audio quality. LG V20 will provide “Crisp and Clear” sound to its users while using compatible wired headphones.
In the statement, Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company, said, “As smartphones mature, we’re seeing more and more customers looking beyond just fast processors and big displays in their devices. Higher quality audio is simply the natural evolution of the smartphone, as the industry moves toward a more holistic multimedia consumption experience. We’re pleased to continue this long-term partnership with ESS and bring best in class audio to LG V20 users.”
LG revealed that the V20 smartphone will be revealed in 6th September. The device will be running Android 7.0 Nougat at the time of launch. The company claimed that LG V20 would be the first smartphone to launch with the Nougat version.
LG V20 will also have an Always on display and dual rear camera setup. It is also expected that the device will have modular chin just like the LG G5.
