Starting with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung flagships can be used as a desktop PC via a dedicated dock called Samsung DeX. For the first time, Samsung will bring the feature to a tablet – the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4.
The Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. Apart from packing flagship features such as a Snapdragon 835 processor, it will also double as a desktop computer when connected to the dock.
The news comes from SamMobile and they say it will be the first DeX-supported device to have a dual-monitor feature. This lets you use the tablet screen as a second display when docked.
The DeX Pad or DeX Station lets you plug in a monitor, keyboard, and mouse for a full desktop experience. Your Android apps will launch in full screen and can be resized into smaller windows for better multi-tasking.
The two DeX docks currently available are not designed for a device as large as a tablet, so there is a possibility Samsung may unveil a new dock for it.
