Android Authority's Kirin 960 audio specs:
" HiSilicon is also paying more attention to audio this time around. There’s a new embedded DSP and its third generation Hi6403 codec on board, which boasts an improved noise floor of -117dB and a dynamic range of 117. This bests the iPhone 7's codec and the Qualcomm WCD9335 found in today’s flagships. However, its THD+N characteristic of -90dB doesn’t quite match up to the competitors, but is an improvement on the previous Hi6402 IC. The Hi6403 supports overkill audio formats in the form of 32bit 192KHz PCM, as well as the DSD lossless format. It also consumes 17 to 33% less power than before."
How will this compare to competition ? Let us see once they announce the Mate 9.
