High performance audio amps are making their way into more smartphones than ever. This quarter we have seen a wide range of smartphones go to high performance audio amps instead of being content with the amplifiers embedded within the mobile chipset. Cirrus logics CS35L36A shows up in the high profile Huawei P20 Pro and the CS35L40 in the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018). This shows the wide range of smartphones going more and more to high performance audio chips. The Huawei P20 Pro is a $1000 category phone whereas the Samsung Galaxy A6 (2018) retails for under $300. No wonder Cirrus Logic invested in a new higher performance technology for their lasted chips- 55nm.
