LG V20 teaser highlights its audio capabilities
A new teaser has appeared for the upcoming LG V20, showing off a microphone stand accompanied by a launch date in Seoul set for September 7th. The V20 is also scheduled to be unveiled in San Francisco on September 6th.
Earlier in the month, LG announced that the V20 would be the first smartphone equipped with a “quad” DAC from ESS Technology. The is almost certainly the company’s latest ES9218 SoC component; a 32-bit stereo channel DAC with support for 384 kHz PCM and DSD512 data, analog volume controls, and a built-in headphone amplifier. LG is promising the best in class audio experience with the V20, that will hopefully build on the already excellent V10.
The teaser also seems to contain the words “hear, see, and more”, although the translation might be a little off. In a blog post announcing the Korean launch event, LG also states that the V20 will offer “the best video and audio experience”. Leaked renders already suggest that a dual rear camera configuration could be making is way to the V20 from the G5, so we can probably expect some new video and photography features to arrive with the smartphone too.
There are just a few more weeks left to wait until the official unveiling of the LG V20. What, if anything, are you most looking forward to about the smartphone?
