With the various models and brands of mobile phones in the market today, it is difficult to find a the right accessory. With this in mind, Samsung has developed a docking station that would fit not only their upcoming S series phones but also other computing devices. Samsung announced their newest innovation – the Dex Docking Station.
The newest docking station – Dubbed Dex (styled DeX by Samsung), will be made available specially for the new S8 as well as s8+ users as a way for them to be able to convert their phones into a desktop computer. Such an idea has already been common for all Samsung devices since the company considers comfort and efficiency in every product. Although Samsung wasn’t the first to come up with this idea, they were surely the first one to succeed in doing it.
Samsung explains in the product launch that when the phone is locked in the docking system, the S8 and S8+ phone will automatically sync with the mouse, keyboard as well as the monitor. The moment the device has synced, the desktop computer will run normally as it should but in Android mode. What’s exciting is that Samsung is actually aiming a notch higher than its competitors by working together with famous virtualization experts such as VMware and Citrix to design a dock that allows cloud-hosted apps. This far exceeds its competition – the Continuum by Windows, which runs only on UWP or Universal Windows Platform apps.
Another surprise has been unveiled by Samsung in this event as they introduce another breakthrough in the WiFi router technology – the Connect Home router. The same with its competitor which is he Wifi [sic] from Google, the Connect Home router is synced with Samsung’s interface. It works perfectly with Samsung products and equipped with support for other wireless protocols such as Z-Wave and ZigBee as well as Hue lighting systems from Philips.
As for the price of Smart Connect Home hub and Samsung Dex dock, we still need to be on the watch as Samsung is still coming up with the best way to offer these new products at the most affordable price possible.
