From everything we can gather, the US variants of the Samsung Galaxy S will feature video-out only via wireless DLNA technology. That’s pretty cool and cuts back on having to purchase additional accessories, though if you don’t own a DLNA compliant television and aren’t in the market for a new one it is pretty much a lost feature. Now, this isn’t confirmed for any of the four Galaxy S phones hitting the states, but the international version does have wired video-out via the 3.5mm headphone jack.
It isn’t anything like the HD video quality you’ll get from an HDMI-out or even the DLNA link, but it does provide you with a one to one representation of everything you are doing on your phone, including recorded videos and the like. Does it stack up to the HD outputs of the EVO and Droid X? HDBlog.it put together a video review of the feature, so check it out and decide for yourself.
