Surely becoming a standard feature amongst most high-end smartphones, HDMI-out functionality offers handset owners a mirrored experience that lets them interact with the phone normally – while having things being displayed on a high-def television. Well, a couple of new images just recently appeared showing off a distinguishable looking Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY that's connected to a television set via an HDMI cable of some sort.
It’s hard to say if this is some kind of new model or simply a modified version of the existing one, but it’s definitely allowing games to be viewed in full fidelity through the high-definition television set. Meticulously looking at the images, it’s rather hard to confirm if it’s showing some sort of HDMI-out port on the handset or relying on the microUSB port. Frankly, it’s definitely a nice thing to have on a device like the Xperia PLAY, but then again, the images can also prove to be nothing more than fakes.
Regardless, we’re sure that HDMI-out functionality is something that’s going to be a no-brainer offering with the next version of the handset.
