BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) and Lenovo (HKSE: 992) today announced the launch of three new mobile devices with Dolby Atmos® sound at Mobile World Congress® 2015: the Lenovo® A7000 smartphone and two tablets, the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 and the Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70. Dolby Atmos creates a whole new mobile headphone experience with breathtaking moving audio that flows above and around the user. This makes the Lenovo A7000 the world’s first smartphone with Dolby Atmos. The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 will be the first Android™ Lollipop tablet to feature Dolby Atmos, and the TAB 2 A10-70 will be the first 10-inch Android tablet to feature Dolby Atmos.
“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,” said Jeff Meredith, Vice President and General Manager, Tablets, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo. “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.”
With the new Lenovo smartphone and tablets with Dolby Atmos, users can expect to hear rich and powerful sounds coming from all directions, including overhead. When the listener puts on headphones, the action comes alive as an arrow shoots overhead, a heavy rainstorm pours down from above, and a race car screeches around the corner, all with incredible realism, making listeners feel like they’re inside the action.
“The best entertainment experiences put you in the center of the action,” said John Couling, Senior Vice President, E-Media Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “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.”
