From LG recently it was possible to hear that the new G8 ThinQ model comes with a unique option that will allow it to use the device display as a speaker.
Namely, this is the Crystal Sound OLED or CSO option, within which the display is used as a moving diaphragm, and makes the entire surface vibrate. This allows the display to act as the second sound channel, and together with the speaker located at the bottom of the device creates a stereo effect. The technology is still new when smartphones are in question, and the first was applied by LG at the beginning of 2018. Sony, on the other hand, has been applying for some time in its TV screen, called Acoustic Surface Technology.
When the TVs on the option option function well because of larger surfaces, the sound is better localized, so the impression that voices during a dialogue come directly from the lips of the actors and the interlocutor in a TV show.
The G8 ThinQ comes with Meridian audio support, along with DTS: X 3D surround effects that allow 7.1 audio tracks to be output from speakers or headphones. There is also an option Boombox Speaker, which first appeared on last year’s models, and thanks to which the phone can vibrate from the side of the device it is placed on some surface, thus creating a richer sound of higher power. The LG G8 ThinQ will officially be presented at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona.
