The Galaxy Note 9 is Samsung’s first smartphone that allows the user to work on a desktop-like interface without the need for Samsung’s DeX station/dock. Just a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter cable is enough to use the phone with an external monitor in DeX mode, but what about those who already have a DeX Station or DeX Pad and don’t want to spend money on the Type-C cable? Well, you can use both DeX docks with the Galaxy Note 9 just as you can use them with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, and the Galaxy S9.

This shouldn’t be a surprise for most people, but given the way Samsung has been touting the inbuilt DeX mode on the Galaxy Note 9, some DeX dock owners may have been wondering if it works with the Note 9. It does, and thanks to the upgraded cooling system inside the phone and the fan on the dock, it should run cooler and have consistent performance in DeX mode. The DeX dock is also necessary if you don’t have a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse lying around, as it offers two full USB ports for wired peripherals. Of course, the phone’s display can also be used as a touchpad, although that is a good experience only on the DeX Pad, which isn’t available as widely as the DeX Station.
