Samsung DeX Docking Station - Hands On
The Samsung DeX (docking experience) is a circular, thick puck that has cutouts on its rear for USB and HDMI ports. Connect it to an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse, then plug in the Samsung Galaxy S8 to the Type-C port, and your monitor will come to life with an Android desktop UI. The S8 will be charged at the same time.
With DeX you get a desktop mode that looks like a combination of Chrome OS and Windows 10. Supported apps can be resized, and even have right-click functionality -- they generally offer a familiar, desktop user experience. Most of the supported apps right now are Samsung apps, as well as Microsoft's Office suite and some Adobe apps. The company will have a program to help get developers implement support with third-party apps.
