Cirrus Logic (Wolfson) WM1840E audio codec as found in Samsung Galaxy A8
Audio remains one of the top features differentiating mobile phones. High-fidelity audio codecs, audio processors, and audio amplifiers remain discrete in high-tier products (drifting down to mid-tier products), even though the core chipset manufactures continue to integrate most other features at an amazing rate. The latest example of this is the recently released Samsung Galaxy A8 in which the Cirrus Logic (Wolfson) WM1840E audio codec performs the bulk of the audio functions.
