There are a growing number of things you can do by plugging a smartphone into an external display… but what if you’ve got an Ultra HD display you want to power?

No problem. Analogix Semiconductor has just introduced a new chip that will let smartphones output 4096 x 2160 pixel content at 60 frames per second through a USB-C port.

The SlimPort ANX7688 chip is designed to work in conjunction with phones and tablets that have USB-C ports and Qualcomm processors, and in addition to 2160p content at 60fps, the chip supports 1080p content at 120 fps.

That means you could run a cable to your TV to watch videos, play games, or run apps in high-resolution with fast refresh rates. Or you could hook up a headset for virtual reality games or other experiences.
