LG Electronics says it has partnered ESS Technology to launch V-20, a ‘state of the art Smartphone’ expected to provide best-in-class audio performance to users.
According to LG, V20 will be the first smartphone in the industry to feature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) capabilities, bringing a superior, one of a kind audio experience to mobile for the very first time.
With Quad DAC technology, LG says its V20 flagship will deliver a crisp and clear audio sound that comes closest to a live performance when using compatible wired headphones, noting that the sound is superior to that produced by a traditional DAC as it can reduce up to 50 percent of ambient noise levels.
LG further says videos taken with the V20 Smartphone will be 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.
Speaking on the planned smartphone Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company says that “as smartphones mature, we’re seeing more and more customers looking beyond just fast processors and big displays in their devices.”
According to the LG President, “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.”
Robert Blair, President and Chief Executive Officer of ESS Technology on his part adds that “we are extremely excited that our Quad DAC technology will be featured in the V20, LG’s latest flagship Smartphone for consumers who demand the best media experience.
“As a technology more typically available in high-end audio equipment, Quad DAC on the V20 will make users feel as if they are carrying around a professional home-audio system on their smartphone.”
