Samsungs Galaxy S9 turns into a desktop computer

Samsungs Galaxy S9 turns into a desktop computer

When the new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were revealed earlier this year, they also announced their new DeX Pad. The new device enables you to view applications on an external monitor whilst using the phone as touchpad.

The DeX Pad is now open for pre-orders in the US and is expected in the UK later this year.

It's a great solution if you want to be able to work on a larger screen whenever you want. You plug it in to your monitor, dock your phone in the pad which then launches a DeX mode on your monitor - this then allows you to open up your applications in separate windows, very much like using a PC. It comes complete with a USB-C charging port which means that you can charge you phone whilst working plus two ISB-A 2.0 ports and an HDMI output so you can also connect a mouse. A great addition is a built-in fan to keep your phone cool whilst its docked.
