LG V20 will be the first phone to feature 32 bit Quad DAC for audio


Earlier this week, we saw renders of the LG V20 smartphone that offered clear look at the design of the phone. Now, LG has announced that the successor of the V10 will feature a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter).

According to LG, the DAC produces a crisp and clear sound reproduction that reduces ambient noise by up to 50 percent. LG is teaming again with ESS for this audio technology as last year’s V10 also featured 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC.

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.

It is said that the V20 builds upon the premium and rich multimedia smartphone experience of last year’s LG V10. Unfortunately, no details about the specifications of the phone are known as of now.

LG will announce the V20 smartphone in San Francisco on September 6th.
