Lenovo and Dolby Laboratories today announced a new smartphone and two tablets with Dolby Atmos sound at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The new Dolby Atmos technology creates a moving audio experience that that flows above and around the user. This will be the first time that this technology has been integrated with a mobile phone or a tablet.
The new devices announced today were the Lenovo A7000 smartphone, the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 and the Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70.
Speaking at the launch event, Jeff Meredith, Vice President and General Manager, Tablets, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo, said, “Dolby and Lenovo have collaborated on a number of projects over the past years, always with the shared goal of delivering the best-possible mobile entertainment experience to consumers worldwide. We are delighted to bring the experience to a whole new level with Dolby Atmos, the most significant audio advancement in the entertainment industry in recent years.”
Once users will pay music from these gadgets using headphones, the Dolby Atmos system will make the sounds move around the users, like an arrow shooting overhead, a heavy rainstorm pouring down from above and a race car screeching around the corner with as much realism as possible.
John Couling, Senior Vice President, E-Media Business Group, Dolby Laboratories, said, “The best entertainment experiences put you in the center of the action. Dolby Atmos provides audiences with a powerful mobile headphone experience with moving audio that flows all around you, and we’re thrilled to be working with Lenovo to elevate entertainment on the go.”
The new devices will be available for sale between May and June this year.
