Not sure if it the same as the Note one, as from what I've seen the part no. is different.

Either way in stock at MF:

Don't think so, my Note works with all my cables but the S3 doesn't. According to the MHL consortium manufacturers are able to implement proprietary connections to MHL if they wish, which bodes ill here... But hey! It might be an improved version right?

I agree entirely. Disappointing to see Samsung go the proprietary route, very disappointing to see the MHL consortium allow that too...

It had better deliver more charge and/or allow simultaneous USB OTG connections, if there is no benefit whatsoever to consumers I'll be giving Samsung a big serve in my review...

I'm just joking , I don't know the truth yet for sure... but we saw that so many times already.

But, if this is a modification to allow a 1920x1080 full desktop mode at 60Hz in the next update (the one where the phone screen becomes a touchpad with a small icon to pop-up the on-screen keyboard) I'll apology to Samsung.

And I thought we could get this feature with ICS... still not there.

Lightbulb Found the cause, the S3 uses MHL v2.0
Well I found out why it's not working.

The S3 uses MHL v2.0 in which the resolution out is changed to 1080p60 (HDMI 1.4b, 8 channel digital audio) and also the power has been raised from 500mA to 900mA for half the charge time.

So all in all these changes is good but I'm not sure if it's the MHL consortium or Samsung that made the mistake and leave out backward compatible with MHL v1.0

The MHL chip in the SGS3 isn't MHL 2.0, infact as far as i can Google, Silicon Image just made the first MHL 2.0 chip less than a week ago.

Indeed, was just reading this ifixit article where they label it as being Silicon Image 9244.

On this chip description page they give a max [email protected]/30 Hz which isn't anything new.
