Among the multitude of Galaxy S8-related announcements yesterday, one in particular stood out towards the end. The Samsung DeX is a service that lets S8 users plop their smartphone into a device and boot up a desktop PC.
All you need is an external monitor with HDMI port, a keyboard and a mouse to connect to your DeX Station and then dock your Galaxy S8 into it. The phone instantly switches to DeX mode and you can navigate the interface to seamlessly access mobile apps, browse the web, answer messages and much more.
The Samsung DeX will be available globally starting April 21, alongside the launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
