Google has purchased a United Kingdom startup called Redux, which is known for developing technologies that allows mobile displays to turn into speakers. The transfer of shares between NVF Tech Limited, the holders of Redux and Google was confirmed on the 13th of December, last year.
Google has declined to comment on the acquisition, including how much might have been paid for Redux. Redux's technology could also be used create haptic feedback - which gives the sense of touch on a surface such as a screen. The acquisition could prove useful to Google, and could change the way it designed its future Pixel smartphones. Bezel-less phones will benefit a great deal from the speaker-display tech and will be able to further reduce the jawline. However, it is believed the deal went through in August.
So far, Redux has only been able to integrate its technologies inside PCs and some infotainment systems for vehicles, but none have made its way to commercially available mobile devices yet. Needless to say, the tech that helps integrate smartphone speakers within the display will be invaluable for Google or any other smartphone manufacturers. This technology can free up space in the devices, creating room for batteries or other components.
At CES 2018, Google mainly focused on promoting its smart speakers and its new line of Smart Display devices, its direct competitor to the Amazon Echo Show.
It is unclear what work the Redux team will do for Google, or already has been doing, but it's possible that they could be working to use the technology to improve the sound quality of Google's own smartphones. Panel Audio could allow Google to cram a lot more hardware into its phones, which could give it more room to boost the on-device artificial intelligence services it has been pushing over the past year.
