LG is preparing to launch a high quality music service for its premium smartphones. In a statement, the company said the service, called Hi–Fi Music, would offer music at six times the quality of a typical CD.
HQ music has been a big deal in 2015, with Jay–Z’s Tidal streaming service offering a pricier, high–end option. Neil Young also launched Pono, a music player and service aimed at delivering studio quality tracks.
LG says devices including the G2, G3 and G4 will get the service. However it is yet to give a specific launch date, revealing only that rollout will start this month. The UK is one of 70 countries on board.
While LG states that users will be able to download two free tracks per month and get a 50% discount on other songs, there is no mention of this being a streaming service.
That’s likely to limit its appeal to smartphone users who can already access the likes of Google Play Music and Spotify via their Android–based LG phones.
