LG has said that the upcoming V30 flagship smartphone will offer audio features “unseen in a smartphone before.” In a press release, the company announced that the device will features a 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC powered by ESS Technology’s SABRE ES9218P which offers more customizable options compared to the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC that was present in the V20 and G6.
The new Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC gets two new features – Digital filters and Sound presets. “Even with ordinary equipment, LG V30 users can experience much of the high-quality audio enjoyed by listeners using expensive headsets,” the company claims.
Highlights of LG V30’s audio:
- Digital filters improves the pre and post-ringing of the impulse response with filters that can be customized to personal tastes.
- There are four optimal pre-programmed settings: enhanced, detailed, live and bass.
- The Hi-Fi Quad DAC controls left and right audio signals separately, adjusting balance and LG has managed to cut the distortion rate down to 0.0002 percent.
- The audio paths are wider than ever in the V30 so it can process large, high-quality audio files without any lag and with greater accuracy.
- Includes technology from partner company MQA Ltd. that facilitates high resolution audio streaming
- HD Audio Recorder in the V30 features the capability to use the audio receiver of the phone simultaneously as a microphone (Receiver-as-a-Mic or RAM). The RAM can record loud sounds clearly, so the V30 can record a wider dynamic range of sounds, from a whisper to a thunderstorm, without distortion.
LG also said that the V30 will come with a set of high quality B&O PLAY earphones. “For most people, listening to the music they love is a fundamental part of their lives and they expect the same uncompromised experience and quality from their headphones as they do from the mobile device they source music from,” said John Mollanger, CEO of B&O PLAY.
The LG V30 is set to be officially unveiled on August 31st, 2017 in Berlin at 9:00 am CEST (12:30 PM IST).
