Samsung DeX, an accessory that turns the Galaxy S8 or the S8+ into desktop-like computers when connected to an external monitor, reportedly also works with the Microsoft Lumia 950. A new video posted on YouTube shows how the Lumia 950 works perfectly with Samsung’s DeX station. It loads up Microsoft’s version of smartphone-powered desktop UI based on Windows 10 when connected to an external monitor.
The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are equipped with powerful 64-bit octa-core processors that are powerful enough to drive a 4K external monitor when connected using the DeX station. All the processing actually happens on the smartphones, and DeX just offers multiple ports to connect things like keyboard, mice, storage device, an ethernet cable, and an HDMI port. So, is the DeX just a glorified, overpriced USB-C hub from Samsung?
