LG Stylus 2 with DAB+ support coming to Australia and Europe
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.
