Samsung DeX + Galaxy Note9: Transform Any Space into a Productive Workplace
Samsung DeX is an entire PC in your pocket, empowering new levels of productivity wherever you go. Plug your Note9 into any external monitor, and DeX projects a PC-like experience powered entirely by their smartphone.
With expanded support for easy-to-carry HDMI adapters, and deep compatibility with the Galaxy Note9, mobile multitasking has never been simpler.
Here’s how Galaxy Note9 and Samsung DeX bring new meaning to the phrase: “productivity powerhouse.”
Made for Mobile Lifestyles
Samsung DeX offers an Android-based, PC-like interface that allows you to seamlessly access your phone’s apps, for convenient viewing and editing of documents and presentations, watching a favorite show or movie, mobile gaming, and much more.
The interface is easy to navigate, supports keyboard and mouse gestures such as shortcuts, scrolling and dragging and dropping, and features a variety of optimized apps that allow users to get the most out of working on a larger display. The ability to effortlessly toggle between apps and view their contents on a bigger screen makes multitasking a breeze, and makes working on your smartphone more convenient and efficient.
Your phone still functions as a phone when it’s plugged in, and calls, texts and settings are all accessible via the taskbar located in the lower right corner of your monitor.
More Ways to Connect
Convenience has always been key for Samsung DeX, which is why the solution offers a variety of simple ways to connect your Galaxy smartphone to a display and get down to work. These include the previously introduced DeX Station and DeX Pad, as well as the solution’s new support for HDMI adapters*. To get started, simply connect your Galaxy Note9 to a monitor with one of those choices.
The solution’s support for HDMI connectivity means that the HDMI adapters can be easily dropped in a bag, creating more opportunities to enjoy a PC-like experience anywhere you have your smartphone and a monitor to connect to. Meanwhile, the Samsung DeX Station and DeX Pad support multiple screen resolutions (up to HD+ and WQHD) and open even more apps at once. Samsung DeX is compatible with a broad range of accessories, including keyboards, mice, headsets and more.
Pick the one that best suits your needs and start enjoying a more productive and convenient mobile experience with Samsung DeX.
Samsung DeX’s new dual mode support enhances multitasking, allowing you to work simultaneously on your display and on your Galaxy Note9, so you can watch a video on the display while jotting down notes on your Galaxy Note9 with S Pen. Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Note9 also lets you utilize the smartphone as a touch keyboard, touchpad, or a surface for drawing with the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) S Pen.
The S Pen’s deep Samsung DeX integration allows you to access its full range of capabilities. With its new remote control capability, the S Pen can also effortlessly control presentations when connected to any external display.
An Ever-Expanding Samsung Ecosystem
When Samsung DeX launched in 2017, dozens of partners have signed on develop new capabilities and functionality. Samsung continues to develop an ever-expanding list of programs—including popular software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe, Blackberry and many more.
The service also includes support for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions, including those from Citrix, VMware and Amazon Web Service. This means that Samsung DeX can enhance mobility for business users who need access to Windows or other legacy environments, with a single, powerful productivity platform.
The list of Samsung DeX-compatible devices continues to grow, and now, with the Galaxy Tab S4, extends to tablets as well. Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Tab S4 can be accessed standalone, or the device can be linked to a larger display using a HDMI connection. Samsung DeX integration with Galaxy Tab S4 enables the same functionality as it does with Galaxy Note9, creating more opportunities for users to multitask efficiently and further cementing the Galaxy Tab S4’s status as the go-to-tablet for mobile productivity.
