August 12, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We already know that LG V20 will be the first to provide Android Nougat OS out of the box. But that’s not the only debut the upcoming smartphone will be hosting. A new report now confirms that LG V20 will also be the first device to feature Quad DACs in smartphones.

Wondering what this would bring to your audio apprehension? According to the company, the Quad DAC used in V20 should be able to deliver crisp and clear sound that feels like discerning to a live performance when using compatible wired headphones.

The inclusion of Hi-Fi Quad DAC should not just up your experience of audio apprehension in smartphones, but will also simultaneously reduce up to 50 percent of ambient noise levels when recording videos. This should noticeably up the audio quality in your recorded videos.


The new audio technology inclusion is a big step-up from the company considering the previously used 24-bit DAC module, which was used in its flagship G5 smartphone in partnership with Bang and Olufsen. Quad DAC technology is able to provide superior sound technology compared to the previous Hi-Fi DAC used in G5, says the South Korean manufacturer.

LG’s new offering comes as a result of its partnership with ESS Technology, which also highlights the companies interest in improving the multimedia experience offered through its devices. ESS Technology has previously worked together with LG to offer 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC in LG V10 smartphone.

Besides the high-quality audio capture offered through Quad DAC, LG’s V20 also flaunts a dashing camera setup that features a dual-camera on the rear side; a wide angle fix-focus sensor and a higher resolution autofocus sensor. The device also features a modular base according to the revealed images, but nothing is confirmed as of now.

LG V20 will be making its first appearance in San Francisco on September 6th.
