Galaxy S7 to Have Enhanced Sound Quality

Galaxy S7 to Have Enhanced Sound Quality

According to China-based IT news site MyDrivers on Oct. 18 (local time), the Galaxy S7 will feature the SABRE 9018AQ2M, which was released by ESS Technology early this year. Hi-fi digital music is close to its analog counterpart, and its sound quality is 6.5 times as good as that offered by CDs. Hence, it is popular among music lovers.

The 9018AQ2M, an upgraded version of the ES9018K2M, has a 129 dB signal-to-noise ratio and supports formats like PCM or DSD up to 32-bit and 384 kHz. However, it only consumes less than 40 mW, or 1 mW in standby mode.

LG Electronics has already introduced a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC to the V10. The new smartphone has Up-Sampling, which improves sound quality up to 384kH to the extent that it is possible to enjoy digital and streaming music nearly like original sound. This move can be interpreted to reflect the trend that smartphones are increasingly used for music players.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S7 will reportedly feature the Exynos 8890, the Exynos 7422, and the Snapdragon 820, Synaptics’s pressure sensitivity sensor, which is similar to 3D Touch for the iPhones, and USB Type-C.
