A couple of days ago, we reported that LG is rumored to feature a 5.7-inch display and Snapdragon 820. And now the company has revealed that the V20 smartphone will port a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) for enhanced audio playback.

“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.”

The South Korean consumer electronics giant, sent an email statement saying that when using compatible wired headphones, the phone will deliver ‘crisp and clear’ sound to its users. It will be superior to a traditional DAC and is said to be capable of reducing 50 percent of the ambient noise.

Speaking of the Quad DAC, LG has worked with ESS Technology which will be the “lynchpin” for several multimedia-related features that’ll be found on the LG V20. To recall, its highly popular predecessor LG V10 had 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC. The ESS Technology is a leader in the field of high-performance analog and audio devices. The worked closely with LG to ensure that the Quad DAC, delivered the best audio experience for owners of the LG V20.

Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company, said in the statement: “As smartphones mature, we’re seeing more and more customers looking beyond just fast processors and big displays on their devices. 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.”

LG V20 will be launched on September 6 and will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. The company also claims that the LG V20 is the first smartphone to launch with the Nougat version.
