Consumers recycling mobile phones for the latest technology may welcome a new announcement.

It has emerged a number of manufacturers have come together in a bid to bring innovative connectivity options for handset-based multimedia in a universal format.

Samsung Electronics, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba unveiled plans to develop a new interface system that will help consumers connect their mobile phones to external systems like televisions.

The product will place image clarity at the top of the agenda and has named the collective as the Mobile High-Definition Interface Working Group.

"[Our] vision for the next generation of mobile connectivity is to provide an easy and cost-effective implementation for manufacturers while offering consumers a simple and reliable mobile connectivity experience," it explained.

Multimedia-enabled handsets that incorporate video playback from some of the firms already involved in the project include the Samsung Galaxy, the Sony Ericsson Satio and the Toshiba TG01.
