Price and release date for Samsung's DeX dock for the Galaxy S8 have been confirmed
While a leak from last week already revealed the price tag and specs of the dock, information about the commercial launch for the DeX was scarce prior to the "Unpacked" event held on March 29. The Samsung store indicates that the device will ship in "late April". Basically, this means that the docking station will be released simultaneously with the two new Galaxy S flagships, which will have a global launch on April 28, while being available a week earlier in the US (April 21). A further confirmation can be found in the official Samsung press release for the DeX which states that the gadget "will be available globally with the Galaxy S8".
All of these key features justify the $150 retail price, but Samsung might also surprise users in some markets by offering the DeX as a packaged bundle.
