Here’s what actually the reported Samsung DeX Pad for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be looking. The storyline begins with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, which Samsung will unveil both on February 25, ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) event. The South Korean firm has already sent out press invites which hints that the smartphones will emphasize camera performance and much more.
One feature that has barely been discussed and rumored, though, is the new DeX Station. This time it is called the DeX Pad. It will launch alongside the Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagships, but a new leak shows us what the accessory will look like.
However, we all will be learning more about the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ lately, while more details are coming to light as we get near to the launch day. We have already accompanied with the hardware, including their battery capacities, design language and of course, the camera specifications. Even we’ve also seen renders of both flagships, including a recent leak that showed the Galaxy S9+ equipped with a dual camera setup on the back.
There are also a couple of new software features that Samsung itself will definitely demonstrate on stage, too. One of the first big rumors about the Galaxy S9 and S9+ has been that they would go on sale alongside a “backward-facing DeX docking station” which would relatively lay flat on a desk or table, unlike the current generation vertically-oriented DeX Dock.
Earlier this week, Evan Blass at VentureBeat has uncovered the evidence of the new backward-compatible DeX docking station. Uploaded a couple press renders that show us what it will look like. Not only it will work and get support with the Galaxy S9 and S9+, but also said to work with the previous Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices as well.
It’s also be called the DeX Pad, and it lets you use the smartphone’s display as a touchpad or a vertical keyboard in Samsung’s DeX desktop interface.
The goal behind Samsung’s DeX accessories is to enable owners to use your smartphone as a computer with nothing more than a monitor. The DeX Pad makes a lot of sense and the last thing you want to think about it lugging around a mouse or keyboard, which it effectively stands in for those peripherals.
No more information regarding the pricing and the availability for the DeX pad as yet, but we’re expecting to learn more in the coming weeks.
Reminder: The current-generation DeX dock costs $150.
