Samsung Galaxy S Now More Amazing, Does Video Output Via 3.5mm Jack


Early Android handset adopters (cough, cough…G1 owners) were none too happy about HTC leaving out a 3.5mm headphone jack for listening to audio.  That was then and this is now and the 3.5mm headphone jack is the standard it should have always been.   It appears Samsung took the idea to the next level.  The international version of the Galaxy S has a menu option to enable video output directly to your TV through the 3.5 mm jack. Pretty cool, right?

While recently release phones have a similar capability, it seems the Galaxy S has the ability to dump everything from your screen to your TV.  This feature will essentially turn your TV into a live screencast of your Galaxy S, homescreen and all.  No word yet as to whether this feature will be included in the versions launching soon state-side, but when we find out we will let you know as soon as we can! Check out the video after the break for a very impressive demo!
