The successor of the LG V10 will be released next month and the South Korean multinational electronics company has just announced that the device will feature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, which will replace the ESS SABRE 9018 DAC and 9602 Headphone Amplifier that were used in the previous model. According to the press release, users will hear a concert-like sound, as this DAC will be able to reduce up to 50 percent ambient noise levels.
September 6th is the day when the LG V20 will be unveiled. The smartphone will have a similar design to its predecessor, it will measure 159.5 x 78.1 x 8.8 mm and will be MIL-STD-810G certified, so it will be resistant to nicks and scratches. It will have a primary IPS CD display of 5.7-inch with a QHD resolution and a secondary display that will be placed on top of it, which will have a diagonal of 2.1-inch and will support 160 x 1040 pixels.
The V20 will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad core processor (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) that will be backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM, if coupled with 32/64 GB of storage or 6GB of RAM, if paired with 128GB of storage. The device will have a rear camera of 20MP with laser autofocus, OIS and LED flash and an 8MP duo front camera, and will be kept alive by a 4000mAh battery.
Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics, is very excited about the addition of Quad DAC on the V20, which “will make users feel as if they are carrying around a professional home-audio system on their smartphone.” He also said that “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.”
