Samsung Launched DeX Pad
Samsung announced the launch of its new DeX Pad, which is used as a desktop visualization tool, on March 13, 2018.
Samsung envisioned transforming newer Galaxy phones into a desktop-like virtualization tool. This was possible with the launch of its new DeX Pad.
This second-generation DeX Pad, was launched two months after the release date of Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
The original DeX is a puck-shaped one, while the newer version is sleeker-looking, with the added addition of compatibility with Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, S8 Active, and Note 8, which were released in 2017.
It is easy to use, as all one is required to do is dock their phone into the pad via USB-C. This can further be connected to any HDMI monitor to get a desktop-like experience with virtualization support. The docked phone can also be used as on-screen keyboard and in the future can be used as a trackpad Users can also place their phones flat on the Pad to use it as a trackpad or keyboard.
Samsung claims to have signed up with 30 to 40 partners to make DeX-optimized applications, including Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV, Microsoft Office, and some Adobe products.
The device is currently being sold at a price of US$ 99.99, in retail stores. Before the product was out in stores, it came free with any orders of the Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus through Samsung’s website.
