Samsung and LG Work on Portable Monitors



Samsung and LG Work on Portable Monitors

Desktop computers and mobile phones have never gotten along. Traditionally, connecting the phone to the computer has been somewhat unproductive and quite desperate.

The gap has narrowed considerably with the cloud and content synchronization. However, when it comes to using our mobile as a desktop computer, we have not advanced much.

Only some manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, or Huawei have provided their users with desktop modes to use their phones as a desktop computer. Now, that could be even easier in the future with a new device segment that is about to hit the market.

Portable Monitors, The New Accessory for Our Mobile

Computer monitors usually have HDMI, VGA connectors, and sometimes with certain adapters, we can use them in a more or less simple way with our mobile, projecting their screen on a larger surface. The problem is that this is often not well optimized and the experience is not satisfactory.

According to the Koren News website, ETNews, those Korean technology giants, both Samsung and LG, are working on new devices that could minimize this gap in the future. So much so that these are portable monitors that we can connect to our phone wirelessly. Of course, you can also do it through cables.

And when we say a monitor, we are referring to a device with a look of the tablet. It will be thin, and with a good screen. It has no component inside it beyond the connections and the battery. This is because its only task is to visualize to desktop mode. Taking advantage of the power of our mobile to work on a larger screen.

These manufacturers would also take advantage of the new desktop mode introduced by Google on Android. This feature allows us to enjoy the operating system as if it were a desktop computer. It is done in a similar way as we do for example, on a Windows 10 computer.

The name of portable monitors

Samsung’s device will be called DeXbook. It will have a 14.1-inch screen, similar to the laptop, with Full HD resolution. In order not to depend on plugs, it would have an integrated 10000mAh battery, with a weight of only 600 grams. In this way, we could take the screen with us and work with the mobile anywhere.

We would only have to connect peripherals to our mobile through USB connectivity. Everything is compatible with Google’s operating system.

On the other hand, LG would have another model. Their model has a smaller battery of 5000mAh and the same screen size, which would be called ” CloudTop. ” The resolution will be the same as Samsung’s portable monitor, which is a FullHD screen (1,920×1,080 pixels.)

The price of these monitors will be between 300 and 400 US Dollars. They are expected to arrive during the second quarter of 2020.

Without a doubt, it is a very interesting device to convert our mobile in the future into a whole desktop computer. It is something that makes a lot of sense for the future.
