Samsung DeX Pad renders leak ahead of MWC 2018

Samsung DeX Pad renders leak ahead of MWC 2018

In fact, the leaks are getting better ad better, and a new series of images shows off two features the Galaxy S9 main rival lacks.

Samsung's new DeX dock also does away with the Ethernet port that was present on the original dock. The leaked info claims it will allow you to easily connect a physical keyboard and mouse to the dock while the Galaxy S9 phone will act as a virtual keyboard or a touchpad based on how you want it to be. So users in the U.S. will have a bit more waiting to do, especially if they own a carrier version.

USB-C earphones are all still either bad or expensive - or both - and phones that retain compatibility with 3.5mm connectors remain profoundly useful to consumers that aren't yet convinced by Bluetooth. The DeX dock has a variety of connectivity options such as, USB-C for recharging the device, USB-A and HDMI ports are also available on the DeX which can be activated while the device is on the DeX.

A new leak shows the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Samsung DeX Pad ahead of their debut on February 25. The one thing that appears to be missing in the upcoming accessory seems to be the Ethernet port that was there on the original DeX Dock accessory that went official a year ago with the Galaxy S8 smartphones.

So it's possible the Galaxy S9 could launch at MWC 2018 with Android Oreo installed while some S8 users are still waiting to receive the big update. Further, there appears to be some kind of vent where the S9 would rest on top of the device, presumably for cooling. This may be a way to make sure that Galaxy phones don't heat up.

There was talk about the DeX Pad before, but thanks to a new leak from prominent leaker of smartphone things, Evan Blass, now we know what it (probably) looks like.

The S9 Plus is also expected to have a dual camera set up, similar to the Note 8, which will let users shoot pictures with out-of-focus effects.

Among other Android 8.0-specific changes, you will see picture-in-picture support, autofill for passwords, faster boot times and new emojis.
