LG today highlighted one of the major features of the upcoming V20 and it should appeal to those who value audio quality.
The LG V20 will feature something called a Quad DAC (digital to analogue converter), which will improve the quality of the audio significantly. LG claims that it reduces ambient noise levels by 50% compared to the LG V10, which only had a single DAC. It also notes that video captured can record more detailed sound.
“As smartphones mature, we’re seeing more and more customers looking beyond just fast processors and big displays in their devices,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company. “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.”
