I am confused as to why LDAC is not supported on this phone seeing as it's free. Can any devs shed some light on whether it will be included in the next update?
I own a Nokia 7 plus and have a set of Sony Bluetooth headphones which were working perfectly for several months with my phone until a recent Android software update, after which they stopped working. I tried re-pairing the headphones ,reinstalling the Sony app and although the associated app said they were connected they wouldn't connect with google assistant, music apps or work to make or receive phone calls. The Bluetooth also continually disconnected and reconnected. After much trial and error I discovered that the only way to make them work was to turn off LDAC in the Bluetooth settings. It was switched to ON by default. After I did that the headphones again connected and functioned normally. According to the specs my phone should work with the LDAC codec. Is this anomaly a result of the recent android update ?
Same issue here. I own a Fiio BTR3 and if I connect it to Nokia 7 Plus using LDAC (forced by leaving only that codec enabled on Fiio) the BT connection drops and reconnects every time I start playing audio.
Thank you for writing that post, I was starting to believe that there might be something wrong with my Fiio when it's the phone wrongly allowing LDAC when it doesn't support it.
Thankfully my Fiio also supports AptX HD which works but I would love if HMD fixed this LDAC annoyance.
@brianinoz what update are you referring too?
It might also be that prior to updating LDAC wasn't supported at all and your headphones were using SBC from the bat and after the update the LDAC option was added but non-functional resulting in this issue.
Same issue to me after software update. I have Sony Shake X70D
