Samsung teases pair of 1080p LED monitors with MHL support

Samsung is believed to be the first company to launch two computer monitors that support Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) technology. The technology made its mainstream debut on the Galaxy S II smartphone, which is also made by Samsung. It involves the ability to send HDMI signals over a microUSB connection, though it requires a separate power source.

Samsung hasn't yet priced or dated the 23-inch S23B550VS and 27-inch S27B550VS, though some tech specs were gleaned. Each has 1080p resolution, a VGA input, and integrated speakers.

The new monitors do not have a separate power requirement, though the required microUSB to MHL cables aren't yet shipping. Other smartphones that support MHL include the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, upcoming Galaxy S III and HTC's One X, along with most if not all recent LG and HTC handsets. [via Blog]
