Expect to hear explosion-like ringtones coming from firm's new devices.

Surround sound specialist Dolby has partnered with the Chinese phone maker to deliver high quality audio to its future smartphones and tablets.

This seems to be part of Huawei's move into the high-end market, as the firm earlier revealed its quad-core Ascend D quad smartphone, which features the Dolby Digital Plus tech.

The tech has been mobile optimised to provide virtual surround sound through headphones, as well as specific bass and frequency enhancements.

Huawei device CMO chairman, Shaoyang, said: "In today’s world, consumers are seeking the very best entertainment experience that technology can offer. Through our collaboration with Dolby, Huawei will take the mobile entertainment experience to the next level, enabling consumers to experience rich, full-impact audio on future Huawei devices.

"By connecting these devices with HD-ready TVs, audio/video receivers (AVRs), and home theater systems, consumers can experience cinema-quality surround sound.”
