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.
