LDAC bluetooth audio

In this video you pair with Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUwgTLE7bD8

These headphones can use the LDAC codec for bluetooth audio - does MuditaOS support this?

@caolan Thanks for your question. I think @Wojciech_Cichon would be the person to answer this.

Highly unlikely: so far very few manufacturers seem able to implement LDAC, namely Sony and Technics. AptX is probably the most common higher-quality bluetooth connection.

Open-source implementations of the codec are available, though I don’t know how mature they are. That said, I’m able to use it with my Google Pixel 3A, my old ThinkPad running Linux, and my newer Linux desktop using a Bluetooth dongle, and the Bluetooth 4.2 hardware on this phone should be capable of the required transfer rate too.
