Qualcomm aptX Voice Brings HD Quality to Bluetooth Voice Calls
Qualcomm today introduced a new high-quality codec for voice calls over Bluetooth. aptx Voice brings the high quality of aptX — currently available for stereo music connections over Bluetooth — to voice calls over Bluetooth. Standard Bluetooth voice call profiles don't deliver the full quality offered by newer HD Voice services available on 4G networks. aptX Voice corrects this, allowing 32 kHz voice call quality over Bluetooth. aptX Voice is already supported on Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 765 and 865 chipsets.
