Samsung DeX Pad now available for pre-order in the US for $99.99
If you already own one of Samsung's new flagships, the Galaxy S9 or S9+, you can now pre-order the DeX Pad, an accessory unveiled back in February. The new Dex Pad won't come cheap, so if you want one, you have to come up with $99.99 upfront.

According to Samsung, all pre-orders will ship in the week of May 13, so everyone should get their accessories in mid-May. Also, the handset maker offers free shipping on all orders, so you won't have to pay more than 100 bucks.

The Samsung DeX Pad comes with Fast Charge wall charger, USB-C cable, and HDMI cable. Basically, everything you'll need to connect your phone to a bigger display.

In case you haven't used such an accessory before, the DeX Pad enables you to turn your smartphone into a true desktop experience. Simply dock the phone into the DeX Pad so that it launches a special DeX mode on the connected external monitor. 



On top of that, you'll be able to connect a mouse or keyboard for even more productivity, or you can use the phone's screen as a touchpad. Another major benefit is that while you're working on a bigger display, the DeX Pad will fast charge your Galaxy S9/S9+.

Last but not least, the DeX Pad is equipped with two USB-A 2.0, an HDMI output, and a USB-C charging port, which allows users to connect a wide range of peripherals.

Will this work for Note 8 or even the S8? $99 is not too bad consider this got a fast charge and mini desktop like.

 Dex Pad supports Galaxy S9/S9+ only. (Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8 may be supported later with OS update).

Definitely updating my current DeX to this unit asap. The inability to use the headphone jack with the previous version was a sticking point for me.

DeX have a hdmi port so you can transfer sound from your phone to your TV.

Great ... and why would you use TV? To watch movies? That can do probably every TV on the market right now, but no TV gives you "Android desktop" ... and where is desktop best used? On a TV or a monitor?

Thanks but I use my DeX as a second computer at work and I want to get at the headphone jack for podcasts and music.

I have friends used Dex while on vacations. Plug it to hotel TV and view their camera photos, shared them on Facebook and watch their favorite movies off Netflix and other free movies app. Better on bigger screen.
