Samsung Galaxy S9 Will Retail With The DeX Pad
It appears that along with the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung is also working on a new version of its DeX dock. According to a recent report, it won’t be a dock this time around, and just like the Samsung wireless charger, it will be a pad. Also, it will retail along with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ which might make it a great deal.
The report claims that with Android 8.0 Oreo, the display of the connected phone can be used as a mouse, and that it will also get the option of being used as a keyboard. This feature will negate the need of carrying a mouse and keyboard to use the DeX pad, which is currently the case with the DeX dock.
As much as the DeX pad or dock is an interesting accessory, it is, at the end of the day an accessory. Much like the Bixby button, the Dex is something which will never replace a real PC users machine.
It will also be interesting to see if this deal will be a factor in the price of the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The way smartphones are priced these days and the increasing price of every new generation of smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ may reach the thousand dollar barrier just like the iPhone X.
