South Korean company LG Electronics has announced that its new smartphone LG Stylus 2 will be the first device in the world to support DAB + digital broadcasts, which will soon be available to residents of countries such as Australia, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and Great Britain.
This new product has an integrated DAB + chipset and a proprietary exclusive application, allowing users to enjoy the opportunity to listen to digital radio broadcasts in the new standard out of the box. At the same time, the technical interface of the device allows third-party developers and broadcasting companies to develop their own applications, expanding the spectrum of broadcast radio programs with various Internet services.
Recall that the digital radio standard DAB + does not use mobile or Wi-Fi networks to deliver content, but broadcasts at radio frequencies. But unlike conventional FM radio stations, DAB + has a higher quality than digital audio. DAB + is expected to replace analog FM radio and already has over 500 million listeners in 40 countries around the world.
