LG Partners With B&O PLAY, Powerful Hi-Fi Features On LG G5

February 18, 2016 - Written By John Anon

The LG G5 is the latest flagship device to come from LG and is one which will be unveiled in the coming days when the company takes to the stage just ahead of MWC 2016. As such, the rumor mill has been in overdrive with a number of reports coming through on the device. The latest of which emerged earlier today suggesting the LG G5 will come with a ‘magic slot‘ which allows for different accessories to be connecting to the smartphone. A rumor which had been heard before and seemed to be confirmed again today.

In fact, when it comes to the LG G5, this does seem to be a device which is coming with some really interesting new features. It has already been largely confirmed by LG that the G5 will be equipped with an Always On display and it now looks as though the smartphone will be getting an audio boost as well, as LG has now confirmed the inclusion of B&O PLAY features on the G5.

For those unfamiliar with B&O PLAY, this is a part of the Bang & Olufsen empire and was thought to have been designed to bring the company’s high-end design and products to the next-generation of users. In fact, B&O PLAY has often been credited with boosting the company’s sales over the last few years and modernizing the brand. Today’s announcement from LG confirms that LG has partnered with B&O PLAY to bring audio improvements to a number of devices going forward. The first of which will be the LG G5. LG notes that the two companies have been ‘”working closely” on the G5 to ensure an increased sound experience. One which LG states will see the G5 coming equipped with “powerful Hi-Fi audio features“. Unfortunately, for now the announcement does not go into much detail on what these powerful new audio features will be and instead focuses on the conformation of the partnership, the inclusion of the features on the G5 and the further development between the two companies going forward. Either way, with the announcement set for a few days from now, it should not be too long before more information on these powerful new audio features are announced.
