LG plans to roll out Dolby-enhanced multimedia phones by Q4 2008
Sure, you can listen to “high-end” sound on your phone via your $300 headphones, but do you really think it can outperform the likes of speakers with Dolby’s tech inside them?
If you’re prepared to ditch your old brand for LG by Q4 of 2008, you have a good chance to try the very first handsets with Dolby Mobile sound systems inside. And knowing LG’s preference to touchscreen displays these days, the upcoming Dolby Mobile-enhanced models will probably be happily boasting touchscreen smartphone tech as well.
LG is set to be the first cellphone maker in the world to incorporate Dolby’s Mobile sound system in their devices, due to a deal that the two companies have reached. This addition to an LG phone’s multimedia arsenal is expected to introduce a dramatic improvement in overall sound output and quality.
The models with Dolby Mobile sound systems inside have not been announced yet, so there is no way to know how much they will be priced. But since Dolby is classified all-round premium tech, you’d do well to expect a premium price on these handsets as well.
