LG V20 set to be the first smartphone to sport 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC

LG V20 Back Leak

News about the LG V20 keeps pouring in, with the latest one coming straight from the brand itself. The company claims that the upcoming handset will be the first in the world to sport 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) skills.

LG is working in collaboration with ESS Technology to make this possible. The two had worked together previously to develop the V10’s 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC. The South Korean manufacturer is now terming the Quad DAC as the lynchpin of the many cutting-edge multimedia features present in the V20.

Of course, LG didn’t go into details as to what these could be. It chose to focus on the Quad DAC instead, talking about how the technology supplies clear sound which supposedly provides the most accurate recreation of a live performance through compatible wired headphones.

LG claims that the audio produced by a Quad DAC is superior to that of an ordinary DAC since it can reduce up to 50% of ambient noise levels. It goes as far as to assert that videos taken with the V20 can capture the sound of waves crashing on a beach or a conversation between two people at a noisy party.

ESS Technology for its own part says that users will feel as if they’re carrying around a professional home-audio system on their V20. In other official news, the smartphone is also set to be among the first to run Google’s as-yet-unreleased Android 7.0 Nougat.

According to leaks so far, the LG V20 may sport a G5-like dual-camera setup and modular abilities. The handset is set to be launched on September 6. We’ll keep you updated regarding any details about the handset till it gets officially launched.
