Samsung signs a multi-year contract with Wolfson as 'primary audio partner' for the Galaxy phones
You might not have heard about the Scottish firm Wolfson, but it provides some of the most advanced audio processing chips for mobile handsets, and there is an audible difference from devices with a Wolfson processor.

Samsung, in its eternal wisdom, has finally done the right thing, after dating Wolfson for the audio in some of its Galaxy line handsets, inlcuding the Exynos 5 Octa S4, and has now signed a multi-year contract with the Scottish firm, which includes intellectual property exchange, as well as a components deal.

Wolfson's CEO Mike Hickey said: "This is a significant milestone for Wolfson. Having worked closely with Samsung over recent years, this agreement is a testament to our strong IP portfolio and our growing partnership. We very much look forward to working closely together to continue to deliver exceptional audio in Samsung's smartphones and tablets."
