In February, Samsung announced Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. But that was not all. The South Korean company, like it usually does, revealed a bevy of accessories for the new smartphone models including the first-ever DeX ‘Pad’.
All roads lead to Barcelona, Spain, and Samsung finally unveiled its latest Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones today at Unpacked 2018. The new Galaxy S Series is finally here, and so are a handful of new Galaxy accessories to compliment.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in a matter of weeks, but there appears to be something more in the rumor mill. DeX Pad could be a new DeX Station-like device for Samsung’s newest phones. The difference from the DeX device that debuted last year is in the name ‘DeX Pad.’ Instead of a stand up dock, this one lays down and can turn your phone into a touchpad.
DeX was first introduced alongside Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. We know the name DeX from Samsung’s DeX Station, a dock that turns one’s Galaxy Note 8 into a desktop like experience when paired with an external monitor. A few months ago, it was discovered that Samsung was working on a new DeX model, and now there’s proof.
