    LG has teased that its forthcoming V30 will offer next-generation audio functions including an advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC.

    LG has built its V series smartphones under the banner of power – both the V10 and V20 have included cutting-edge Quad DACs (Digital to Analogue Converter) for superior sound, and now the South Korean company has teased that its forthcoming V30 smartphone will up the ante.

    LG has partnered with ESS Technology to debut an Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC aboard the V30, which will apparently enable clear sound with features such as digital filters and unique sound presets.

    The company offered that it would continue a collaboration with B&O Play (a child company of renowned audio brand Bang & Olufsen) to partner high-quality earphones with the V30; somewhat alike how Samsung’s Galaxy S8 ships with AKG earphones in the box.

    The V30 will further bring with it enhanced audio recording, which – according to LG – will enable purchasers to capture an array of sound “from a whisper to a thunderstorm, without distortion.”

    The claim may be a bold one, but it is a move being investigated by other Android device manufacturers; Nokia, under HMD Global, recently announced the Nokia 8 alongside its debut with Ozo audio recording technology.

    The V30 is slated for debut on the 31st of August, and is widely expected to introduce a slimmer, sleeker design that is highly reminiscent of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Note 8. The device might well break convention from previous efforts, as both the V10 and V20 have arrived with a far more industrial design that praises function over form.

    The smartphone was recently the subject of an interface leak, which revealed that LG had scrapped the V series’ classic secondary screen for a ticker based off an Always-On display.
