The tech industry is gradually recognizing the benefit of high fidelity audio. It looks like LG is the next player to put an effort into helping us get the worth out of our pricey set of cans.
Today, LG has announced the launch of its own Hi-Fi music service, specifically for LG smartphone owners. The new service will be incorporated in the LG SmartWorld app.
However, LG stated that only its flagship customers will be able to get use this service, which includes the “G4, G3, G2, and G Flex 2″ (I wonder why the original G Flex isn’t on this list?).
[blockquote author=”Chris Yie, VP of LG Mobile Communications”]Our Hi-Fi music service reflects our ongoing commitment to providing additional customer benefits to loyal LG customers. MP3 music is perfectly fine for most people but those with Hi-Fi capable LG smartphones can experience a much richer environment.[/blockquote]
The high quality playback will be at 24bit/192kHz. It doesn’t look like this is a streaming service, as LG states that “qualifying customers” will get two free tracks a month and 50% off the purchase of songs after that.
The rollout of the Hi-Fi service will begin this month via the SmartWorld app. It will debut in “nearly 70 countries including the United States, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Italy, Russia, and the United Kingdom.”
Are any LG fans enticed by this move to a better audio experience?
