The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) announced that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are MirrorLink–enabled. This is the pivotal moment for MirrorLink ecosystem and global car/smartphone connectivity according to experts. HTC One(M8) also is MirrorLink-ready and it got the compliance in form of a software update sometime back.
The Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge embrace Samsung’s heritage of an unrivaled Galaxy mobile experience. The Note 4’s extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing a tremendous viewing experience.
Taking the Galaxy Note experience to the next level, the Note Edge provides users with a new way to access information, engage with their mobile device, and express their personality and tastes. The Galaxy Note Edge’s unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb. Users can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing.
“Based on the Galaxy series’ popularity in the global smartphone market, MirrorLink‘s presence in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge is a watershed moment for car connectivity. With volume production of MirrorLink-enabled vehicles currently taking place at Honda, PSA Peugeot-Citroën, Toyota, Volkswagen and many others, MirrorLink has clearly entered mainstream acceptance as one of the world’s most compelling connected-car technologies.”- Alan Ewing, President and Executive Director of the CCC
MirrorLink is the leading industry standard for car-smartphone connectivity and is designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars. MirrorLink is also the only OS- and OEM-agnostic standard for car-smartphone connectivity and the only vendor-neutral standard where no single entity has a controlling stake. MirrorLink thus offers the quickest global route to safer and more enjoyable connected driving.
