Content on the Samsung website doesn't make sense. APTX is supported on the Qualcomm 675 and by Android 9. (Pie.)
So please just escalate this if you need to.
To the rest of the community, is there anyone which is using the A70 and APTX. If your using APTX, which version (Low Latency, HD, Adaptive, etc.)
The Samsung A70 page makes no reference to LDAC either so it is not to be trusted;
The APTX page is, as you acknowledge, way out of date;
The Community forum page you mention only confirms what I am saying: Why does the A70 not support APTX if it is using the Qualcomm 675 and Android 9?
This problem is also happening on the Note 9 which uses the Qualcomm 845 which supports APTX.
I want an answer. Why do both the A70 and Note 9 not support APTX when they should.
Just answer the simple question.
I have tried to enable the APTX feature on my Note 9.
First, you'll need to enable the developers option in the Settings of your phone. (To enable, please go to Settings> About device/phone> Software information> Tap fast the ''build number'' for almost 5 times)
Once enabled, please go back to Settings> Developers option> Look for Bluetooth Audio codec and change it to APTX.
Hope that it may help!
The multi-page thread at https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-Note9/aptx-HD-support-for-Galaxy-Note-9/td-p/688333 is about very frustrated users of Note 9 not having APTX with either Android 8 be or Android 9 update.
Samsung is out of line.
Andrew (moderator), stop ignoring my post or I will use the Internet to further expose Samsung for not supporting APTX
The developers have confirmed that aptX should be available on the latest Samsung smartphone devices - including the A70.
As for specific versions, aptX HD was found to be suspectible to audio chopping whilst streaming during the developers' tests, so they've opted to implement aptX Adaptive support instead. Nothing definitive from them in the 'when' that will be implemented though, but likely to come in a future software update.
Even if timescaled not definitive yet, good to know that APTX will be supported in the adaptive format in due course, though pity problem with the HD. Some technical information here:
Really need the APTX HD support on the newer phones. I am on A51 with APTX and the bluetooth quality is abysmal. Like unbearably bad.
I was using Oneplus 3T, which is a 3-year old phone, and it perfectly supports APTX HD. Switched just to try out my first Samsung phone. How can a phone (A51) this recent be not supporting such a fundamental technology for bluetooth earphone users?
It was previously reported in this thread that samsung were supporting Adaptive APTX and not APTX HD as the Developer tests revealed a issue with Audio chopping,I am not aware of any change but Moderators may be able to confirm.
According to What Hifi, Adaptive APTX will replace APTX HD at some point. https://www.whathifi.com/advice/aptx-hd-bluetooth-what-it-how-can-you-get-it
The Spec sheet https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/galaxy-s20/specs/ under Bluetooth says:
Scalable Codec: Enhanced Bluetooth connection under ambient radio frequency interference
Could "Enhanced Bluetooth" be Qualcomm APTX Adaptive https://www.aptx.com/aptx-adaptive, which includes backward compatibility to APTX-HD?
If not. what is this?
Someone, please confirm!!!
