We said that one of the features that could come with the Samsung Galaxy S8 it was something like Continuum, a feature of high-level Windows mobiles that gave us the ability to use them as a PC. Well, this will be possible thanks to an accessory that will be a dock called Samsung DeX, and that will arrive with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The new dock has been registered, thus clearly confirming that it will be the accessory that will be launched with the company’s flagship. Until now, we did not know much more than the idea of Samsung was to launch this function with the mobile, but we did not know how. The Continuum feature of Windows Phones It did include an accessory, but it was not clear how this novelty would be in the case of the Samsung mobile. Now that this new accessory has been registered, it is clear that it will be the key to using the Samsung Galaxy S8 as a PC.
The name Samsung DeX comes from Desktop EXperience. It will probably be a dock that will connect to our Samsung Galaxy S8 through the USB Type-C port. Then this dock will have USB and HDMI sockets to connect a monitor and also a keyboard and mouse, or it is even possible that the Bluetooth connection is used to connect these devices. Of course, it will also be connected to the electrical network to be able to charge the mobile battery in the meantime, because it will consume a lot of energy.
Samsung Galaxy S8, do you need a PC?
Of course, now one may wonder if when buying a Samsung Galaxy S8, you need a computer. The truth is that it is beginning to be less clear that it is necessary. All mobile applications, even high-end ones, will run flawlessly on a Samsung Galaxy S8. We should do without some very professional softwarel, as could be the case with Photoshop or Lightroom, as well as professional video or audio editing software. However, for what users use their computer in the vast majority of cases, such as to write documents, or to work more productively on a larger screen, it may not take much more. And I say that even for jobs like mine, in which writing is the main thing, and editing the images does not require extremely advanced applications.
