Samsung DeX Will Turn The Galaxy S8 From Phone To PC
The rumored Continuum-like feature of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 has been revealed recently in a patent as the Samsung Desktop Experience or DeX.
The patent for the Samsung DeX was filed back in Oct. 2016 and is poised to provide the Galaxy S8 another reason to become successful once the highly anticipated flagship smartphone is released. The Samsung DeX is the Korean conglomerate's latest attempt to "commercialize the futuristic phone-to-PC concept" as Android Headlines noted.
What is DeX exactly?
The Samsung Desktop Experience is an application software that projects the screen of the Galaxy S8 (and perhaps other Samsung devices after the S8) to a display using computer peripheral devices and wireless networks. It is similar to Microsoft's Windows Continuum which turns any phone into a desktop computer.
How does DeX work?
Samsung will utilize a dedicated docking station called the DeX Station which is similar to the Smart Dock used by the Galaxy Note II. The said dock is specially designed to provide the Galaxy S8 a way to connect to a computer monitor thus providing the desktop PC experience.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to come with at least one USB-Type C port which should be useful for one cable workstations, as GSM Arena pointed out. The USB-C port will be necessary for the Samsung DeX as it will require peripherals. Currently, there are monitors with USB-C ports that can e used as USB hubs for the peripherals.
This early, the Galaxy S8 is expected to be one of the top smartphones of 2017. A series of leaks may have already shown what the Galaxy S8 will look like but its impressive features are still begging for confirmation which will likely come during the MWC later in February. However, the rumored features such as the bezel-less curved display, a 64GB internal storage and its own AI in Bixby, have been impressive, to say the least.
