LG couple of days ahead of its MWC 2016 keynote event announced that it has partnered with Bang & Olufsen Play (B&O Play) to deliver “enhanced high-quality audio experience” in the upcoming LG G5 flagship smartphone. This also makes the South Korean tech giant first to offer Hi-Fi audio features co-designed by B&O Play. The LG G5 is set to launch on February 21 at a pew-MWC 2016 event.
“We are very excited to work with LG. With LG’s dedication to premium smartphones, the collaboration gives us the opportunity to bring B&O Play’s acoustic excellence to an even broader customer base,” said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, President of B&O Play. “B&O Play appeals to music lovers who want the best available products on the market. They are uncompromisingly innovative, without boundaries and constantly on the go and they expect the same from the headphones as well as the mobile devices they choose, so this is a perfect match.”
A report from earlier this week suggested that LG and B&O Play will together develop the LG Hi-Fi Plus – the G5’s Digital to Analogue Converter or the DAC module. The report corroborated previous reports about the LG flagship smartphone sporting “Magic Slot” at the bottom that can be swapped out with different modules. The another module is reportedly LG Cam Plus, featuring its own battery. The company is reportedly also supposed to launch the LG 360 Cam, a spherical camera meant to capture 360-degree videos and images, along with the LG 360 VR, and a non-air borne drone called Rolling Bot at the upcoming MWC 2016 trade show.
The company has already launched the LG G5 Quick Cover case ahead of the smartphone’s MWC launch.
