What you’re looking at above is a demo board carrying a next-gen Wolfson WM5110 audio chip for smartphones. This bit of silicon isn’t in any market-ready handsets just yet, hence the DIY setup, but given Wolfson’s well-cemented partnership with Samsung there’s every chance this’ll be the audio hub in the next Galaxy S, as well as potentially in other manufacturers’ phones coming out in 2014.
One of the WM5110′s headline features is the ability to handle high sample rate music tracks at 24-bit and 192KHz, aka “studio master” or “better than CD quality” sound.

On the other hand, if you’re unconvinced as to whether 192KHz is even a worthwhile spec to have in smartphone, then read on to learn about some of the WM5110′s other abilities, which have a more practical bent.
The Galaxy S III was frequently tipped to have a Wolfson digital-to-analog converter for high quality audio output– an attribute not seen in this variety because the 1st Galaxy S. That notion has actually simply been verified by the Scottish electronics firm itself, which states its WM1811 Audio Hub has actually been picked for usage in Sammy’s flagship. The chip promises “crystal clear tone phone call quality” and “enriched audio playback for songs and video” thanks to its 24-bit hi-fi DAC, active noise decrease circuits and some other wizardry.
