LG has announced that it will be rolling out a new music service for users of select LG smartphones. The main attraction of this service is that it will allow users to download high resolution audio files to their device.
While most music we listen today is sampled at 16-bit/44.1kHz, music from LG’s service is sampled at a much higher 24-bit/192kHz, which should theoretically make it sound better (we say theoretically because most humans can’t actually tell the difference between standard and high resolution audio).
The service will let customers purchase tracks at up to 50% off the regular price and get two free tracks every month. The service will be available on phones that support high resolution audio, such as the LG G4, G3, G2, and G Flex 2.
The service will start this month in nearly 70 countries, including the United States, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Italy, Russia and the United Kingdom through the LG SmartWorld app and www.lgworld.com.
