What's New with the DeX Pad

You love your DeX Station, but after many projects and reports, you are considering upgrading to the DeX Pad. And since gaming is your hobby, you’re also interested in its gaming aspects. But what’s the difference? Read below to see how the DeX Pad can make you more productive, whether you’re still a student or a seasoned business professional.

DeX Pad New Features

The appearance of the DeX isn't the only thing that has changed, it has brand new features that make it even more convenient and awesome.

Firstly, you can use the phone's screen as a trackpad; in other words, your phone becomes a touchpad that can control your desktop. That means you won't need a mouse or keyboard- just move your finger around the screen.

On top of that, the headset jack isn't blocked anymore. You'll be able to listen to music in the library without bothering anyone. To help you multiple task even more, the new DeX Pad charges your phone while it's plugged in, so you can finish that paper and have a completely charged phone.

If you're playing a game in your downtime, your 2K monitor will have WQHD (2560 x 1440) screen resolution. You deserve great picture quality after acing that presentation.

Compatible Phones

Since the DeX Pad is brand new, you'll need a newer phone with the latest update. The DeX Pad can be used with:

  • Galaxy S8 and S8+ with Oreo update.

  • Galaxy Note8 with Oreo update.

  • Galaxy S9 and S9+.
