Samsung and Intel are taking their partnership to a whole new level. Just today Intel announced that its processor is indeed powering Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet, even though Samsung hadn’t mentioned that at the tablet’s launch. They have announced a tie-up on Tuesday which will enable Samsung TVs to stream media content from Intel powered PCs without needing a standalone receiver. Intel’s Wireless Display technology, which will enable this, will be integrated in Samsung TVs by the end of this year.
Intel’s latest processors have Wireless Display capabilities, the chip maker says that it will bring this technology over to mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, eventually. Some 10 million Wireless Display enabled TVs are already available from Toshiba, TCL and LG. With Samsung being added to the mix as well, Intel could see that number double by the end of 2013. It hasn’t been revealed as yet how much these TVs will cost or when they’re likely to be released. If we were to speculate, there’s a high possibility that Samsung’s Wireless Display enabled TVs might be released around the holiday season.
