Hi there, @Chris140. I've had a look into this for you and unfortunately the Galaxy A70 does not support APTX. Apologies for any disappointment this may cause you.

Andrew,

 

This really doesn't make sense.

 

The A70 Uses the Qualcomm 675 which supports APTX (LL, HD, and Adaptive)

@Chris140: I checked the specs on the Samsung website and the supported models on the APTX support page, and wasn't able to see anything to suggest the A70 is supported (although the APTX page seemed like it hadn't been updated in a while as it only went up to the Galaxy S9 range)

Andrew,

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.)

 

Thanks,

Chris

Apologies, I was referring to samsung.com (https://www.samsung.com/uk/smartphones/galaxy-a70/SM-A705FZBUBTU/#specs)

The APTX website was https://www.aptx.com/ - as mentioned, they do mention Samsung, but the A70 isn't listed specifically so it was difficult to be sure.

I found another thread where other community members have discussed the missing feature, which you can check out below.

Andrew,

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The APTX page is, as you acknowledge, way out of date;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?

 

Please escalate

Andrew,

I want an answer to this. Why is there no APTX support when the hardware and software should support it.

Andrew,

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.

Hi, mate! 

 

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!

Pampoo,

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

Hi @Chris140 ,

 

I've put your query forward to our software team to get a definitive answer on this one. Me or one of the other Mods will let you know what the developers reply with. :thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:

Hi all.

 

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!!!
