What To Know

  • Only specific phones support AV content transmission through HDMI.
  • Check phone ports, specifications, or HDMI-compatible lists in the article to verify compatibility.
  • Phones can connect to both smart & non-smart TVs using appropriate adapters or wirelessly.

You’re starting to get tired of watching content on such a small screen and would love to view your favorite shows on a TV or projector.

You know some phones support HDMI connection, but how can you tell if your phone is one of them? How can you connect your phone to a TV/projector with or without an HDMI output port?

Which Type of HDMI Ports Can a Phone Have?

There are five types of HDMI ports/connectors today. These types include:

  • HDMI Type A (Most commonly found on laptops/TVs/projectors)
  • HDMI Type B
  • HDMI Type C
  • HDMI Type D
  • HDMI Type E

Given smartphones’ slim design, it’s not a surprise that none of them feature a hefty HDMI A port. However, many models do feature an HDMI Type C and HDMI Type D port (also called a mini HDMI and micro HDMI, respectively). 

These HDMI output ports also act as the phone’s charging port, making them dual-purpose. 

How to Know If My Phone Supports HDMI?

There are a few ways to check if your phone’s charging port also acts as an HDMI output port.

1. Verify what kind of charging port your smartphone has. If it has an HDMI type C (mini HDMI) or HDMI type D (micro HDMI) port, then you’re in luck.

2. All iPhones (4 and later), iPhone 4 only allows you to display , photos, etc., not screen mirror.

3. Check the smartphone’s specifications found on the manufacturer’s official website, Device Specifications, or GSM Arena. Keep an eye out for a few keywords such as “HDMI,” “MHL,” HDMI Alt Mode,” or Samsung DeX.”

Note: Smartphones with MHL-enabled ports will only work with TVs that have an MHL-enabled HDMI port. Alternatively, you can connect the two using an MHL to HDMI adapter. Learn more about how HDMI and MHL differ by checking out our article HDMI vs. MHL: Understanding the Difference Between Them.

4. Last but not least, you can look for your phone in the following section below. 

Which Phones Support HDMI?

Let’s go over which smartphone models support HDMI Alt Mode, Samsung DeX, or MHL,

1. Phones with HDMI Type C, D Ports

Head to the GSMArena website to see which smartphone models have an HDMI type C or D port, or consult the table below.

Pro Tip: If you’re not sure what your phone model is, check the information in your phone’s settings, the sticker on the back, the phone’s original packaging, or its user manual.

iPhone 5 iPhone 4s    

3. Phones with HDMI Alt Mode or Samsung DeX

HDMI Alt Mode is a standard found in many smartphones that allow them to transmit HDMI signals via a USB-C cable. 

Samsung DeX (or Desktop eXpereince) allows smartphones to output their content to a large display (e.g., monitor, TV, projector). This method uses a similar mechanism to HDMI, and in fact, you can use an HDMI cable to form a Samsung DeX connection. 

Smartphones that support either of these features usually have a USB-C port, though not every smartphone with a USB-C port will support HDMI Alt Mode or Samsung DeX. 

I’ve already written a detailed article outlining Which Samsung Phones Are HDMI Compatible and listing all smartphones with Samsung DeX. Check it out to see if your Samsung phone can output video and audio signals. 

To verify if your smartphone supports HDMI Alt Mode, check its specs as described in this article’s previous section, “How to Know If My Phone Supports HDMI?” or consult the table below (you can use the search command “Ctrl F” and type in your smartphone model).

4. MHL-Supported Phones

micro usb port of a smartphone

MHL-enabled phones tend to have micro USB ports, but not every phone with a micro USB port will support this function. 

These smartphones can only work with TVs and other displays with an MHL-enabled HDMI port. 

Bear in mind that even if your TV does support MHL, not all of its HDMI ports will be MHL-enabled. So, check its user manual, manufacturer’s website, or the port’s label to verify that it is indeed MHL-enabled before trying to connect your smartphone to it. 

If your TV does not support MHL, you can still connect an MHL-enabled smartphone to it using an MHL to HDMI adapter.

You can confirm if your smartphone is MHL-enabled by searching for it on the official MHL website, or using the search command “Ctrl F” and typing in your smartphone model.

Alternative Ways to Mirror a Smartphone onto a Smart TV or a Non-Smart TV

Preface: Both HDMI-supported and non-supported phones can utilize wireless connection methods.

For Smart TVs

Follow the instructions outlined below to mirror your Android or iPhone’s screen to a smart TV. 

Android Phones

Step 1: Head to your Android and smart TV’s network settings and ensure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This process will not work otherwise.

Check out our article How To Connect a Smartphone to a Non-Smart TV? (Wired & Wireless) for a detailed guide on how to mirror your smartphone screen on even the dumbest of TVs.


Are HDMI and MHL the Same?

No. While both HDMI and MHL can transmit AV signals from a source device to a display, they are not the same connection. 

For a more detailed answer to this question and to learn more about HDMI and MHL, read our article HDMI vs. MHL: Understanding the Difference Between Them.

Wrapping Things Up

There are several different ways of verifying if your smartphone has an HDMI output. The easiest is to check if it has a mini HDMI or micro HDMI port, though you can also check the model’s specifications found on the manufacturer’s official website. Finally, you can look for your smartphone model in our section “Which Phones Have HDMI Outputs? (Support HDMI).”

Remember that if your smartphone supports MHL, you must connect it to an MHL-enabled HDMI port or use an MHL to HDMI adapter. 

If your phone doesn’t support HDMI, feel free to screen mirror/cast its content to your smart TV or use one of the methods listed in our article How To Connect a Smartphone to a Non-Smart TV? (Wired & Wireless)

What’s your experience connecting your smartphone to a display using its HDMI output port? How did you verify if your smartphone supports HDMI or MHL?
