Do we know if Nokia 8 with Oreo already supports these Bluetooth standards already ? If not, will they be supported in the near future ? I can see these options under Settings -> Developer options, but when I select aptX, the setting is reverted back to SBC...
Can one of the admins care to comment on this ?
I too would like to know if we'll get aptX support. That being said, now with the Oreo update, selecting AAC seems to have improved audio quality and dropped audio latency, so it more acceptable.
I've tried contacting Nokia via twitter regarding this, but have got no reply. May try other channels until I can get an answer.
Unfortunately, seems that aptx libraries are not present. In programmer's mode, you can select any option (aptX and LDAC seems to be the most interesting ones), but the system reverts always to SBC. It's pretty disappointing to hear silence about this. AFAIK, hardware is there, software is not. Nokia 8 is a terrific device, but this absence is unacceptable. I hope this can be solved in an upcoming update.
Any news on LDAC or at least AptX support?
This is a bit ridiculous having no support for hi-res bluetooth audio codecs, considering that LDAC now is a part of AOSP.
Agree with these comments. Am increasingly streaming from my phone to my hifi and AptX would be a real plus point for Nokia. Any news? This site suggests that it may have, but not sure how reliable it is, which version of Android was tested, etc.
A statement from Nokia would help.
Simple - because of money. For an OEM to support aptX, they have to pay royalties to Qualcomm.
Well I've just returned my phone due to no aptX support, the audio quality was awful compared to my old xperia Z3 that supports it and that phones is years old now.
