Samsung will soon be the first major mobile device manufacturer to offer its customers a two-monitor Android experience. This functionality is now also being introduced in SamMobile, the Samsung Desktop Experience (DeX) series of phone-to-PC solutions, citing sources with knowledge of the company's plans. The upcoming Galaxy Tab S4 will also support the company's DeX ecosystem, as from the same source. It is currently unclear whether a dual-screen experience will allow users to use compatible Samsung tablets as secondary displays if the feature will allow the tech giant's devices to output one image on two screens simultaneously or both. It is rumored that the Galaxy Tab S4 is not announced earlier than the end of August.
After Samsung introduced the DeX Station in early 2017 alongside the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, the original design continued with the DeX Pad. a redesigned phone-to-PC system that allows users to use their handsets not only as a highly portable desktop computer, but also gives them the ability to rely on their touchscreens as an alternative to trackpads. In addition to changing the orientation of the device and the functionality associated with it, the second-generation DeX gadget offers no further significant differences compared to its predecessor and both accessories work with all of Samsung's Android flagship releases released during the year 18 months
Samsung will likely continue to support its vision of smartphone PC hybrids, as it allows a product category to distinguish its mobile devices from most of its competitors (aside from Huawei's mobile phones) and is relatively cheap now that the company is betting completed its initial R & D phase and moved to the iteration of its original product formula. The upcoming Galaxy Note 9 is therefore expected to be compatible with both the DeX Station and DeX Pad, though it is unlikely to be released along with a new version of the gadget that turns Samsung's smartphones and tablets into laptop alternatives. Samsung's next high-end Android smartphone will be officially announced on August 9, the company confirmed earlier this week.
