Samsung Galaxy S8 DeX Station accessory leaked out, it will cost €150


We're pretty sure Samsung Galaxy S8 buyers will have plenty of accessories to choose from as soon as the phone hits the shelves. Even if the South Korean company hasn't yet confirmed anything, we have already learned about a couple of them before their supposedly March 29 reveal.

By now, you've probably heard about the AKG headphones that come inside the Galaxy S8 retail package. Also, Samsung plans to launch a power bank alongside Galaxy S8, as well as a special dock station.

Simply dubbed DeX Station, the accessory is supposed to allow Galaxy S8/S8+ users to connect their phones to an external monitor, as well as add a mouse and/or keyboard to interact with desktop apps.

The DeX Station will be available for purchase for €150, and it will feature two USB-A ports, an Ethernet port (100Mbps), a USB Type-C port, along with an HDMI port for external video (up to 4K @30fps). Also, the accessory will include an embedded cooling fan.

Samsung is expected to announce this Desktop Experience Station (DeX), along with other Galaxy S8 accessories, on March 29.

For gaming I guess? Or VR? Unless it double boots Windows 10 lol

Or you know, making your dumb tv smart. I think I could probably use it for that.

HTPC first, media player second, chromecsst third, a mobile phone dock would be dead last desperation. I'd sooner connect my laptop to my tv with a hdmi cable and even that's kind of shitty.

I was just saying it was an option, as an additional use. Obviously I would rather buy an nvidia shield tv for 200$ if the usage was strictly powering the tv.

It's more than likely aimed at the business market, for a mobile workplace. Motorola attempted something similar in 2011/2012 but it wasn't a success, both hardware and software were lacking. Microsoft later picked it up again for Windows 10 Mobile, but with Windows 10 Mobile being pretty much DOA again nothing much came of it. Samsung might actually be in a position to make it work.

"Samsung might actually be in a position to make it work." Samsung has always been in the position to make stuff like this to work.

Definitely not VR lol. since the phone would have to be docked, you won't be able to put it in the Headset as well. It would be cool to have a Headset that can output to a TV so others around you can see what you see but that would interfere with the VR experience

Lol... why would you waste your money for this docking station when you can get Mini PC with similar price?
