Previously known as the Alpha, the Ulefone Vienna promises to be an audio centric HIFI smarpthone.
Smartphone makers are looking at different aspects of their phones to set themselves apart from the rest of the crowd. Last year Chinese brands focussed on battery size, this year we might see a rise in audio devices.
Audio centric smartphones are nothing new. Vivo has long been known to make some of the best sounding phones on the market, but even back in the early days brands like Neo dabbled in audio phones.
Audio seems to be making a comeback in the smaller phone makers as Ulefone has announced that it’s upcoming Vienna phone will feature independent audio processors. Ulefone have confirmed that the phone will feature NXP smart audio PA, DAC and amp all independent from the Mediatek SoC driving the phone.
The news release also confirms the phone will use a 1920 x 1080 display, and shows a partial image of the phone with a hardware feature button (perhaps used for launching apps or as a camera shutter).
What do you think of the idea of more audio centric devices hitting the market?
