How to connect my smartphone to my TV using an HDMI cable

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

You can connect your smart phone to a Samsung TV via HDMI using a MHL adaptor.


Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is an industry standard mobile audio/video interface that allows you to connect mobile phones, tablets and other portable (CE) devices to your TV and give you more options than just your standard HDMI connection.
