Samsung's official USB-C to HDMI dongle for Galaxy Note 9 DeX support is now up for sale
In addition to making it easier to connect your phone to a monitor and enjoy a “PC-like experience” on the big screen, Samsung may have also made it cheaper to turn the Note 9 into a proper computer.
Granted, the Galaxy S9-compatible DeX Pad has been available for a crazy low price recently, but USB-C to HDMI adapters are regularly sold at $20, $15 or even less. Then again, if you’re primarily concerned about quality and compatibility, it’s probably a good idea to purchase Samsung’s own dongle.
This has reportedly barely started selling on Amazon, and it’s already marked down from a $49.99 list price to a significantly more palatable $31.01. Apart from full DeX compatibility (no costly, bulky dock needed), the adapter offers standard support for UHD and 4K TVs, as well as 60Hz refresh rate, and both HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.2 technology.
For basic mobile device screen mirroring, the official Samsung USB-C to HDMI dongle supports every high-end model from the Galaxy Note 8 to the Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, and S8+. But clearly, the best way to use this thing is for a seamless connection between the Galaxy Note 9 and any type of HDMI-capable monitor whatsoever.
