LG’s New Stylus 2 Smartphone Streams Digital Audio Without Using the Internet



LG has made official the new Stylus 2 smartphone. Though similar, it is not to be confused with the other Stylus 2 device unveiled last month. This one is designated as DAB+. That is because it is special in a way. It is built to be ready for digital audio broadcasting (DAB), a radio broadcasting standard in use in several countries where the device will be available on sale.

Thanks to a built-in DAB+ chipset and an accompanying application, users will be able to stream digital audio and access more radio channels than is possible using traditional analogue FM which DAB+ hopes to fully replace someday.

Besides the digital audio streaming, specifications of the LG Stylus 2 DAB+ are similar to those of the LG Stylus showcased at Mobile World Congress in February i.e. a 5.7-inch HD display, a 13-megapixel camera, Android Marshmallow, 1,5 GB RAM, 16 GB onboard storage (expandable), a 3,000mAh battery, LTE support among others.

It will go on sale in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.
