Samsung MHL enabled monitor demo with Samsung Galaxy Note
See an MHL enabled Samsung Galaxy Note connected to one of the first MHL displays.
Mobile High Definition Link or MHL is a relatively new technology that we have talked quite a bit about here on the Clove blog.
The Samsung Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, HTC One X and Galaxy S III have MHL capabilities but there hasn’t been MHL displays to use them with, so special adapters have been required to connect them to HDMI ports on a monitor or TV.
Well Samsung have released a 23” and 27” monitor with an MHL connection. So we have unboxed it and can say devices such as the Galaxy Note work. No longer is there a need for an adapter or to be connected to mains power. We are not quite at the stage of large TV’s with MHL, but it is only a matter of time.
Check out the video below to see it in action.
Please note: The Samsung Galaxy S III does not work with this monitor using the supplied cable due to a different pin configuration in the microUSB port.
