LG G6 will come with a new Quad DAC for even better audio quality
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!
