No, the Qualcomm 801 SOC has built in DSP and DAC which will be used, rumoured to be quite good though. And as always, it's not in the actual hardware components but in how they are implemented. Good engineering always wins over good hardware

Although the possibility is slim, the UK might be getting the Octa Core Exynos variant which should house a Wolfson DAC but then you would lose out on LTE. There is always a trade off I guess.

Wait, they are still going to be releasing a 3G phone this time round? Surely you jest?
