What is Samsung DeX and do Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note8 work with it?

Samsung DeX is the way to get a desktop experience with select Galaxy devices. Simply place your phone onto the DeX Station and DeX Pad and connect to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to continue what you're doing on your phone on the large monitor screen. Thanks to the dedicated desktop interface available, you can be more efficient working on documents, have even more immersive gameplay, and even edit photos with greater detail—all while getting notifications and video calls as you normally would. As mentioned, there are two ways to connect your phone: DeX Station and DeX Pad.

DeX Station connects to a keyboard, mouse, and monitor to give you the desktop experience wherever you link up, whether it's a hotel lobby or the business lounge at the airport.

You can also use DeX Pad, which only needs to connect to a monitor and allows you to use your Galaxy phone as a trackpad for easy and efficient work. It can also function as a fast charger when you're not using the desktop experience.

* DeX Station, DeX Pad, and accessories including monitor, keyboard, mouse, and HDMI cable (included with DeX Pad) sold separately.
* Available on selected Samsung smartphones running Android 8.0+.
