Samsung DeX, the docking station that turns the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ into desktop computers, is now available to pre-order from Amazon and Samsung’s website in the US. The DeX is priced at $150, and the shipments start from April 20, one day before the release of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, if you happen to pre-order it from Samsung.com, you’ll have to wait until early May.
The DeX is currently compatible only with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. It takes advantage of the powerful octa-core 10nm processors inside the new flagship phones to provide a desktop-like UI when it is connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. You can open multiple web browser tab and windows, watch videos on a big screen, get notifications from smartphones and reply to them, and use all your Android apps.
