The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

It supports for sure sbc, aac and the samung scalable codec (works with samsung buds only)

Since it has a snapdragon inside it should support the aptx codec.

I doubt it supports ldac which is only unfortunately on sony smartphones.

 

If you already have the phone you should be able to easily find out what codecs your phone supports by going into developer options and then the bluetooth codec option, the grayed out ones should be the non supported

Hi, where do I find that in settings? I've looked and can't see it anywhere. Thanks. Motorola and OnePlus now support ldac. I contacted Samsung and the phone "expert" didn't know that an audio codec was so no joy there.

I contacted Samsung and have spoken to 5 different people. Nobody knows the answer or how to obtain it. It was suggested i send my brand new phone off for technical examination,lol

I contacted Oneplus and Motorola with same questions when I considered their phones. Got a reply with information in under 2 hours from each.

It defies belief that a phone for use with wireless headphones doesn't have a spec to state the codecs it supports so you can match up the right headphones and get the audio quality you want.

Phone getting returned.

The audio codecs supported on the S20 are 

SBC , AAC, aptx, LDAC and Scalable Codec

However the headphones have to support the one you are choosing. 

I was unable to choose LDAC on my Sony's until they were paired. 

Now i have LDAC support on the highest bitrate setting

Is this the same for the FE?  I have the S20FE, and it doesn't look like LDAC is a selectable option, even though I have the Sony 1000XM3s paired to them.

Do you have selected priority on sound quality in Sony app? This need to be selected  then go to Bluetooth settings and select your headphones, there you should have ldac option
