Samsung publishes first video ad for DeX; showcases its potential

Samsung DeX was one of the new features that debuted with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ earlier this year. The company tied up with various brands to make DeX-optimized third-party apps. Now, Samsung has published its first video advertisement for the DeX, showcasing various possibilities of the docking station.

The video shows how a journalist makes her Galaxy S8 the primary computing and content creation device. It displays how she captures images using her phone, then attaches the device to the DeX for using a large screen to edit images, create a document, and email it before the article shows up in the next day’s newspaper.

The DeX currently works only with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but it should also be compatible with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Apart from the apps that already support DeX, Samsung’s partner firms are releasing more apps with each passing month. Read our in-depth review of the DeX docking station if you are interested in buying it.

dex can be useful lets say you have a computer at home and at work, then you can just take the dex with you to work and to home and start working seamless

lol – “Leave your computer at home” – Just bring a big screen, full size keyboard, mouse (and the DeX)

I think I’ll just bring my laptop instead.

Haha, our thoughts exactly, as we said in our review. DeX can be handy, but it’s not enough to leave a computer behind unless you’re carrying all that stuff or have it already present wherever you go.

“all that stuff or have it already present wherever you go.” Currently most people put their stuff in cloud. This is the first step.

really? I’ve never seen a computer monitor, keyboard or mouse in any of the hotel rooms I’ve stayed in, not even is business lounges, although they sometimes provide the an entire PC for you to use, nor on any cruise cabins I’ve been on.
