If you've ever wondered how far we've come in terms of computing power, we know that an average smartphone today is millions of times more commanding than the computers that NASA uses to guide Apollo 11 to the moon. Yes, that's exactly why some smartphone makers like Samsung pushed us to connect them to screens and use them as computers.
Now, according to an ETNews report, Samsung and LG are plotting to release portable screens for smartphones. These screens are designed to take advantage of the computing power of today's smartphones and give users the convenience of working in a larger facility without really spending a ton of money.

The displays from the two Korean brands will operate via cable and Bluetooth relations. But unlike Razer's Project Linda, both won't come with a keyboard. Users will need to have a separate keypad to attach to the screen which is a bummer.
Samsung has named its appearance DeXbook. The DeXbook features a 14.1-inch FullHD spectacle and a 10,000 mAh battery. The weight is expected to be contained in the 1kg mark. LG, on the other hand, is expected to call on its Cloud Top laptop. The LG spectacle is also a 14.1-inch FullHD spectacle, but will have a smaller 5,000mAh battery that will hold the weight at a more manageable 600g.
The screens are expected to launch in the second split up of this year. The report also states that the two products are expected to range between 4,00,000 and 5,00,000 Won (24,200 INR – 30,200 INR).
