This new Targus Phone Dock supports DeX and external storage in Knox

Mobile accessory manufacturer Targus has announced a new USB-C docking station for smartphones, and it’s packed with various connectors for peripherals, including Ethernet. More importantly, Targus has partnered with Samsung to make its new Universal USB-C Phone Dock compatible with the South Korean tech giant’s DeX environment.

The Universal USB-C Phone Dock allows Samsung smartphone users to connect their handsets to an external monitor through an HDMI port. It’s essentially a souped-up alternative to the official Samsung DeX Cable, except it’s also a hub boasting USB 3.2 ports, a microSD card reader, a 3.5mm headphone port, and an Ethernet port for a closer-to-desktop experience.

The Phone Dock’s external storage is compatible with Samsung Knox

Although Targus’ latest solution is a universal phone dock that can work with other brands of smartphones, it’s evident that the company’s main focus was to create an accessory that’s capable of taking advantage of Samsung’s ecosystem.

Aside from the Targus Universal Phone Dock offering compatibility with Samsung DeX, the hub also has compatibility with the company’s Knox secure platform. It allows the SD card slot can be used inside the Knox environment.

Finally, the Phone Dock has a tilt function supporting two viewing angles — 60 and 75 degrees — for use cases that don’t require a DeX connection to an external monitor. The accessory will be available for purchase from mid-August for $119.
