LG Launches a Hi-Fi music service for its premium smartphones


LG smartphone owners: Have you ever wished that LG would launch a Hi-Fi music service with 24bit/192kHz quality sound just for a limited group of its handsets? It’s doubtful, but if you have, you are in luck because LG has just announced it will launch such a service later this month.

From LG’s press release, it seems that the Hi-Fi music service will be a download only service and not a direct rival to music streaming services such as Spotify or Tidal. The Hi-Fi service will allow users to listen to music with 24bit/192kHz sound quality, which is around 6 times richer and clearer than the typical Compact Disc. Qualifying customers will be able to download 2 free Hi-Fi tracks each month as well as receiving a discount of up to 50% off further songs. When launched, the Hi-Fi music app will be available to download from LG’s SmartWorld app.

LG Mobile’s vice president and head of marketing communications, Chris Yie, had this to say about the music service:

“Our Hi-Fi music service reflects our ongoing commitment to providing additional customer benefits to loyal LG customers. MP3 music is perfectly fine for most people but those with Hi-Fi capable LG smartphones can experience a much richer environment.”

Owners of LG’s G2, G3, G4 and G Flex 2 handsets can look forward to the Hi-Fi music service launching in almost 70 countries worldwide, including the United States, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Italy, Russia and the United Kingdom. LG hasn’t given a specific date on when the Hi-Fi music service will launch or details on pricing yet.
