LG V30 launch in inching closer, and information about the upcoming flagship is expected to shower heavily now, most of it being dropped by LG itself to create hype. The South Korean tech company recently released a teaser video boasting the “immersive sound” experience the new LG V30 will offer its user. Today LG outed more details announcing that the new flagship will feature 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi DAC powered by ESS Technology’s SABRE ES9218P.
Notably, the LG V20, predecessor to the upcoming flagship was the first smartphone to peg in 32 but Quad DAC audio followed by the G6 that has similar DAC. However, the Quad DAC on the LG V30 is said to be a more upgraded one that will feature digital filters, sound presets, enable a more customisable experience and deliver clear sound even with “ordinary” headphones. Furthermore, the LG V30 includes technology from MQA Ltd that will facilitate high resolution audio streaming. LG says that the handset will be able to record a wider dynamic range of sounds, “from a whisper to a thunderstorm, without distortion.”
The company also says that its continuing its collaboration with B&O Play (a Bang & Olufsen company) to refine audio capabilities in the V30 by “fine-tuning the overall sound experience”.
Separately, live image of the upcoming LG flagship has surfaced prior to its official announcement. The image spotted by SlashLeaks reveal the smartphone having design similar to the LG G6. The image shows the supposed LG V30 sporting a display with minimal bezels, USB Type-C port and speaker grills at the base. On the left corner of the display one can faintly see the floating bar that LG is said to replace with the secondary screen found in the LG V20.
LG had earlier confirmed that the upcoming V-series flagship will feature a P-OLED display. The LG V30 official launch is scheduled to take place in Berlin on August 31 at 9 AM CEST (12:30 PM IST).
