LG's upcoming V20 will be first smartphone to feature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC

Himanshu, 11 August, 2016

LG has announced that its upcoming V20 smartphone will feature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC capabilities, making it the first of its kind in the world. The South Korean company has once again partnered with ESS Technology for the feature - the latter also provided the 32bit DAC for the LG V10.

"A Quad DAC delivers a crisp and clear sound that comes closest to a live performance when using compatible wired headphones," LG said in a press release. "Videos taken with the V20 are accompanied by a soundtrack that can capture the roaring sound of waves crashing on a beach or conversations among two individuals at a noisy party."

"Higher quality audio is simply the natural evolution of the smartphone, as the industry moves toward a more holistic multimedia consumption experience," said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications. "We’re pleased to continue this long-term partnership with ESS and bring best in class audio to LG V20 users."

The LG V20 is set to be unveiled on September 6.

Tat's a big NO! To compare two or more products U must differ only the objects to be compared. Source, headphone, amp, player and settings, shall be the same or competitively equals. Not doing so will make U'r AB-ing biased.
