Dolby Atmos is now supported on five of Samsung’s Android devices

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are Samsung’s first flagship smartphones with stereo speakers, and the company also chose to equip the devices with Dolby Atmos support, which makes a substantial difference to sound quality. Well, it’s not just the Galaxy S9 that has Dolby Atmos support: The newly announced Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ have it as well, and Samsung has also brought the feature to the Galaxy Tab S3 with the Oreo update that started rolling out today.

Dolby Atmos everywhere

That makes a total of five Samsung devices that now have Dolby Atmos, and it’s likely more devices will come with Atmos support in the future. Of course, devices with single loudspeakers won’t be able to take full advantage of Dolby Atmos, but since the effect is more pronounced on a pair of earphones anyway, that’s not much of a limitation. And the takeaway here is that Samsung isn’t holding back on making Dolby Atmos a regular feature. It’s a nice addition for the company’s flagship devices in particular, which now come with AKG-tuned audio thanks to the Korean giant’s acquisition of Harman International.

If you own a Galaxy S9, Galaxy A6, or a Galaxy Tab S3 (running Oreo, which might not be the case for most folks at the moment), you can enable and customize Dolby Atmos from the Sound and vibration » Sound quality and effects menu in the device settings.

It can not be added to the Galaxy S8 because it is a licensing issue.

I would be happy just to get anything other than SBC in the Bluetooth audio codec offering on my note 8.

Ok I understand that the older flagships like s8, s8+ and Note 8 do not have stereo speakers. And so they don’t get Dolby Atmos support (Me a Note user-Why!!?? 😥). But why did they extend the support to the A6 lineup. A6 and A6+ are not flagships or anything. Why did they get that?

Why do the Tab S3 support Dolby Atmos with Oreo, but not the Galaxy S8? It´s really disappointing

Damn this article. I thought they added support for the 5 flagship devices (S8/+ Note8 and s9/+) and my hopes were shattered.

Galaxy s7 and s8 owners can definitely get Dolby Atmos.. just unlock your phone and call 611 to upgrade yourself to the S9 with DUAL SPEAKERS.
