Australia and select European markets will receive this phablet with DAB+ support soon - the first one of its kind in the world.

Earlier today, LG Electronics unveiled the world's first smartphone/phablet with DAB+ support. LG Stylus 2 already made its appearance just ahead of MWC 2016, but now it got a chipset with DAB+ support, as well as an exclusive app for those eager to enjoy digital radio broadcasts out of the box.

While users can access more radio channels via DAB+ than using traditional FM, DAB+ radio also offers excellent audio quality and uses no data. According to the official press release, DAB+ already reaches more than 500 million people in 40 countries worldwide. To add DAB+ support to the Stylus 2, LG teamed up with International DMB Advancement Group.

LG Stylus 2 has a 5.7-inch display, a generous 3000 mAh battery and a 1 W speaker, all these features being able to turn it into "the perfect device to enjoy rich, multimedia content." While pricing and availability information are not public yet, the company revealed the first markets that will get the LG Stylus 2 with DAB+. These are Australia, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
