LG’s upcoming flagship V30 will have a Hi-Fi Quad DAC and a number of next-generation audio functions, the company said. The South Korean says it continues to work closely with B&O Play, a high-end Danish audio company.
LG V30 features a 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter). Powered by ESS Technology’s SABRE ES9218P, LG’s new Hi-Fi Quad DAC will offer two new features that weren’t available in the V20: digital filters and sound presets. LG V30 will also become the first smartphone to support Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) format, a technology for high-resolution music streaming. LG V30 is a perfect example of the partnership strategy behind developing the perfect mobile device for audiophiles, it said.
There’s a lot we already know about the V30. The flagship smartphone will sport a 6-inch P-OLED screen and the Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood. Earlier this month, the company confirmed the high-end phone won’t feature a secondary display, like the V10 and V20 smartphones. It will instead come with a virtual floating bar in place of a secondary screen.
LG V30 is also said to get a dual-camera setup with an f/1.6 aperture. LG claims the new lens will have the largest aperture ever to be featured on a smartphone. Other reported features of the V30 include: IP68 dust and water resistant, 6GB RAM, and a 3200mAh battery.
LG is expected to officially launch the V30 on August 31 in Berlin. Rumors also suggest the company might launch the V30 Plus edition at the same event.
