LG G6 will come with a new Quad DAC for even better audio quality
by Milen Yanachkov / Feb 13, 2017, 1:58 AM
LG brought Hi-Fi sound to the G5 with the B&O-branded “Friend” module, while the V20 catered to audiophiles out of the box with its new 32-bit “Quad” DAC and B&O in-ear headphones bundled with every unit. This tradition will be continued by the upcoming LG G6, which will feature an upgraded Quad DAC capable of producing more accurate sound with little to no distortion.
The new 32-bit Quad DAC is able to control the left and right channels separately, which results in better balanced sound, the company said on Monday. Another stand-out feature of the new DAC is its increased circuit integration, which further reduces the loss of information and brings down distortion levels to as low as 0.0002 percent.
LG's Quad DAC implements four DACs in one chip, as the name suggests, reducing the size of the silicon by a factor of four and static noise by 50 percent. If the LG V20, which was the first smartphone to feature the chip, is anything to go by, then the G6 should produce some excellent sound through the headphone jack.
The company is expected to officially reveal the G6 at MWC in Barcelona at the end of February. Don't forget to tune in for our full coverage of the event!
In the mean time, check out our LG G6 rumor round-up for more information on LG's upcoming flagship. Seems like we were on point when we suggested that the G6 may feature a Quad DAC similar to that of the V20.

All I want to know is battery size. 3500 or more, and they've got a sale.

I still satisfied with the performance of my sd805. who cares about if it is sd 821 or 835?

It's not about the performance, it's about performance per watt, and the 821 is terrible at it.

You can check geekbench battery benchmark. Sadly it doesn't exist now. But Snapdragon 820 got beat by like 50% by Exynos with similar battery size. Anandtech reviews are also a good indication of these stats, though not in numbers.

They should put 5000mah battery in the s8 plus. The galaxy A9 pro has it. Why not the flagship one?

posts like this make me laugh..can you people even grasp that phones have physical sizes with components BESIDES a battery inside them. Look at how people rages at the 100mAh difference between the S7 edge and the Note 7 and look at how that turned out

All modern smarphone is accurate that basically all sound exactly the same, most modern smartphone even one with the worst distortion measurement should still sound 'excelent' you can't discern the difference.

Nope, big difference, especially once you plug in more demanding headphones.

This is great! this is why I have HTC 10 right now. For me who listen to music at least three hours a day to and from my school, this is important. My Samsung Galaxy S5 gave me listening fatigue, but not my HTC 10. Great LG! if you do it right I may consider to buy G6.
