At MWC 2019, LG will introduce the new LG G8ThinQ featuring Crystal Sound OLED (CSO), an innovative technology that utilizes the phone’s OLED display as an audio amplifier.
Developed in-house by LG, CSO repurposes the OLED display as a diaphragm, vibrating the entire surface to produce sound with impressive volume. And because LG’s unique technology takes advantage of the entire display, CSO also improves clarity, making voices easier to discern and subtle musical notes more noticeable.
In speakerphone mode, audio is delivered with impressive bass through the bottom speaker. Full-bodied stereo performance is possible with a 2-channel audio setup utilizing this bottom speaker and the top part of the display. As well as improving the sound, CSO also gives the LG G8ThinQ a clean, minimalist look.
LG’s newest G series phone features:
- DTS:X 3D Surround Sound to emulate a 7.1-channel system with or without earphones.
- Hi-Fi Quad DAC elevates the listening experience by reproducing sound with exceptional fidelity with the added ability to up-sample most audio files for increased clarity and depth.
- Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) support for high-quality audio streaming even without an unlimited data plan.
- Boombox Speaker takes advantage of the internal space of the phone as a resonance chamber to generate amazing bass and more volume.
Visitors to MWC in Barcelona are encouraged to visit the LG booth from February 25-28 to experience Crystal Sound OLED and the LG G8ThinQ along with many other mobile innovations.
