There is no doubt that smartphones are increasingly powerful and capable of performing numerous tasks. However, the size of your screens can sometimes be a limitation. This is something that Samsung and LG want to try to get around.

According to what is being advanced, the two companies are developing portable monitors for use in conjunction with their smartphones. The idea will be to offer greater productivity capabilities to these devices.

Both products will have a 14.1 inch diagonal and Full-HD resolution. However, Samsung’s monitor will have a 10,000mAh battery, while LG’s will stay at 5,000mAh.


Of course, this will have consequences for the weight of these gadgets. The first will weigh less than 1 kilogram and the second a will remain at 600 grams. In fact, these weights are advantageous for the portability of the monitors, but I don’t know if the same can be said for their dimensions.

A 14.1 inch screen is the same as that found on many notebook computers. In other words, it looks like you will be carrying a tablet behind you, but they need your smartphone to work.

Monitors can be connected by cable or Bluetooth

For your smartphone and the monitor to be able to connect, that connection can be made by cable or Bluetooth. It will be important to know if the way you connect them will bring limitations, because if it is not the case, I don’t see why we should take a cable back.

Could this idea be successful?

Trying to bring greater productivity to an Android smartphone is nothing new. Samsung, for example, already has DeX which, in short, consists of connecting a monitor and keyboard to the smartphone and transporting its interface to a larger screen.

Android 10 and the latest equipment from LG already have native functionality that allows us to do something similar to DeX. However, Android is not an operating system prepared for large screens.

In short, this new idea from Samsung and LG has its merit, but it may not have the desired effect due to the limitations imposed by Android. That’s why Fuschia could be the future, because, for the little that is known, it will be prepared for smartphones and tablets.
