Latest Samsung Galaxy S9+ Android Pie beta brings DeX without a dock

Ro, 31 October 2018

With the launch of the Galaxy Note9 this year, Samsung brought a new version of its DeX feature, which didn't need a dock to enable the full desktop DeX experience - a USB-C to HDMI cable would do just fine. And according to the leaked Samsung Experience 10 beta software based on 9.0 Android, the Galaxy S9+ will get the feature as well.

There's a catch though - if you choose not to use the DeX dock, you will be allowed to open only 5 windows instead of 20 and you will lose all the additional connectivity options the dock provides. In any case, since the Galaxy S9+, the regular Galaxy S9 share the same chipset, Samsung will probably deliver the feature to the smaller member of the duo as well.

You can check out the video below to see the new feature in action.

This is a cool feature. It is surprising how many people don't have a laptop or desktop at home.

Huawei uses their own processors. Samsung uses Snapdragon, not sure if exynos can handle the heat or not
