New smartphone features DAB+ support
At the Radiodays Europe convention in Paris, the world’s biggest get-together for mobile telecommunication, LG Electronics presented a smartphone equipped with a DAB+ receiver. DAB+ is the digital successor to FM radio broadcasting. Along with accommodating more radio stations than the current overcrowded FM band, DAB+ provides better reception with less interference.
 
Up to now DAB+ has largely been ignored in smartphones (and in vehicle radios), despite the fact that DAB+ service has been available in several European countries for a good while already. Now LG has unveiled an affordable smartphone with integrated hardware for a DAB+ receiver. The Stylus 2 is a midrange device with a relatively large 5.7” screen. According to LG, the Stylus 2 will soon be available in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK at a price in the 300 euro range.
