Samsung DeX provides enhanced experience for apps

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has released Samsung DeX, designed to improve productivity for mobile professionals while reducing the need to carry multiple computing devices, the company said.

Compatible with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung DeX provides an Android-based desktop-like experience that enables users to seamlessly access apps, edit documents, browse the web, watch videos, reply to messages and more, directly from the smartphone on a larger display, with keyboard and mouse.

To start working, users simply insert their Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ smartphone into the DeX Station, which connects the smartphone to an HDMI-compatible monitor, and connect to any Bluetooth-enabled, USB or RF-type keyboard and mouse.

The DeX Station provides two USB 2.0, Ethernet, USB type-C power-in and a cooling fan. The DeX Station also features Adaptive Fast Charging (AFC) technology to charge the Galaxy S8 and S8+ quickly while connected.
