Samsung Galaxy S handles video out via 3.5mm headset jack

Who would have thought that a 3.5mm headset jack is capable of handling video as well? Currently, the recently released Galaxy S in its many variants has been confirmed to offer video out via its 3.5mm headset jack. The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S comes with a TV out option that is built into the display settings, enabling you to pick your TV type (PAL or NTSC). Of course, before you can proceed, you will need an appropriate cable to go from its 3.5mm jack all the way to the standard AV ports on your TV. This method of implementation will mirror the handset’s display on the TV in real time, bringing it one step ahead of previous handsets such as the EVO 4G that is limited to just the Gallery application and YouTube. Hopefully the US versions of the Galaxy S will come with this nice-to-have feature, but if that doesn’t work, there is always the video sharing over Wi-Fi using DLNA route. Bear in mind that this is not an officially announced feature at time of publishing, so hopefully Samsung will come up with an official comment shortly.
