LG G5 will come with B&O (Bang & Olufsen) audio features
posted by Florin T. / Feb 18, 2016, 8:35 PM
For now, LG can't provide too many details on this, but it mentioned that it worked closely with B&O PLAY to ensure that LG G5 owners will enjoy "the best sound experience" on the device. Needless to say, we have to be patient and wait a bit until we'll be able to test the audio quality of the G5, and see if it's indeed as good as promised.
While the G5 will be LG's first handset to feature Bang & Olufsen audio enhancements, the Danish company isn't at its first collaboration with a phone maker. Almost 10 years ago, Samsung and Bang & Olufsen released a weird deluxe phone, and, more recently, B&O collaborated with Vertu to deliver improved stereo speakers on the Vertu Signature Touch Android smartphone.
Besides enhanced audio capabilities, the LG G5 should offer plenty of high-end features, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a Quad HD display of around 5.5 inches, and a dual rear camera. To find out more about what's expected from the handset (which will be officially showcased on February 21 at MWC 2016), check out our LG G5 rumor review.
P.S.: In case you're wondering, pictured above is a B&O PLAY Bluetooth speaker (which has nothing to do with the LG G5).
- Display 5.3" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2800 mAh

It'll be nice, if it came equipped with dual front speakers.

I like everything about the G5 but the back of the phone. The back is UGLY if the leaks are true.

I'm liking the G5. It's likely a headphone enhancement. This'll be good. I think the back is kinda ugly, but a good case will fix that easily. Front is good to me. S7 better have better cam and battery life (substantially better if LG has removable battery) if they want my money from LG.

This explains why the first LG G5 teaser has the music box in it!! I am excited about this! B&O are used in luxury cars such as Audi.

Very cool. More phone makers should use higher quality audio
