LG turns up the volume on G7 ThinQ smartphone
Boombox and DTS:X technology offers bigger bass, 3D surround sound and clear audio through internal speakers or headphones
LG Electronics’ upcoming premium smartphone will feature the LG G7 ThinQ Boombox Speaker, which the company says increases the base sound level by more than 6dB, with twice the amount of bass typical for such speakers.
Consumers increasingly use their smartphones in the home or while engaged in outdoor activities to listen to music. Many choose to use external Bluetooth speakers because they are not satisfied with the sound quality and volume from conventional smartphone speakers.
LG audio engineers thus came up with a new way to utilise the inner space of the smartphone as a resonance chamber to amplify sound. When placed on a solid surface or box, the LG G7 ThinQ uses its resonance chamber as a woofer to amplify the bass effect even more.
For users who prefer headphones, the LG G7 ThinQ will feature DTS:X 3D Surround Sound, for up to 7.1 channel performance without the need for high-end headphones. Unlike other stereophonic technologies that only deliver high-end audio with specific music, DTS:X supports any type of content to create a sense of space to make the listening experience even more immersive.
The LG G7 ThinQ also features Hi-Fi Quad DAC that packs four digital to analogue converters onto a single sound chip, lowering the total harmonic distortion (THD) rate to 0.0002 percent for more accurate sound reproduction. The LG G7 ThinQ also supports the Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) audio format, which delivers hi-res sound quality in a small file size.
