Samsung DeX: A desktop-like experience powered by your Galaxy smartphone or tablet
For government employees, the workday will at times take you away from your office set-up. To avoid any disruption to your work, it’s important to have the ability to work just as you would on your full desktop PC, without having to carry around the extra equipment.
Samsung DeX is a platform that extends your Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a desktop-like computing experience, enabling you to effortlessly connect your mobile device to a Windows PC via a USB-C to HDMI cable (sold separately), or better yet, wirelessly connect to a SmartMonitor or SmartTV.
For example, start drafting an email on your Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G – with your fingertips or voice – while helping the kids get ready for a day at school. Then, launch DeX when you’re back at your PC to finish, review and send that message using keyboard shortcuts, drag and drop functionality and the ability to resize windows. On days when you need to attend an on-site meeting, use wireless DeX to cast your phone to a SmartTV or SmartMonitor to view large documents in an optimal format, or better yet, project a presentation to the big screen. Multi-task and take hand-written digital notes right on your Galaxy Tab S7+ tablet with the S Pen digital stylus, while using a PC-like interface directly on your tablet screen.
Especially important for public sector workers who require access to confidential programs and documents is the ability to access a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) straight from DeX. View and run software as if it were stored locally while allowing your IT departments to breathe a little easier, knowing all work activities are taking place within a secure environment.
Transforming your conference call experience with the Galaxy ecosystem
With mobility at the core of the new workday, portable laptops are quickly replacing the standard desktop to become the device of choice for public servants.
The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 may be as thin and light as a smartphone or tablet but they’re as powerful as a PC. Available in either 13.3 or 15.6 inches, the Galaxy Book Pro laptops are an integral part of the interconnected Galaxy ecosystem.
For example, when a virtual conference call comes through, simply open the charging case of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds and your Galaxy Book Pro will immediately recognize and connect to them. Enjoy a crystal-clear connection right from the beginning thanks to the powerful voice pick-up.
You can also leverage the Galaxy Book Pro as a second screen to project a presentation while simultaneously jotting down action items on the Galaxy Tab S7+ with its included S Pen. Once you’re done, quickly convert digital handwritten notes to text at the touch of a button and easily share them over email with your team.
For busy public servants who are always jumping on and off video calls, get the notifications you need while keeping your eyes on the task at hand. By linking your smartphone, such as the Galaxy A71, to your laptop, you will not miss an urgent message with Link to Windows functionality. This allows notifications to appear right on your laptop screen for quick and easy responses to help streamline your workflow.
Having access to technology options that enable work to be done in virtually any setting is fast becoming a pre-requisite of a successful workday. With the versatility of Galaxy devices, you will be well-equipped for this new frontier of work.
