LEAKED: Samsung Dex Pad will launch with the Galaxy S9 Smartphone

Those of you who already own a DeX dock for one of your Samsung devices is well acquainted with the goal of the accessory, as it allows you to essentially put Android in a desktop environment.

The Samsung DeX Pad should work very similarly to the DeX Dock, according to VentureBeat, except that while the DeX Pad is said to lie flat, the dock stood upright.

Basically, DeX Pad will turn your device into a personal computer. If anything, it at least looks better than the first DeX dock (in my humble opinion, of course), so it has that going for it. But the goal of this is to get the phone to lay flat so that it can be used as a touchpad with the DeX UI. The DeX Pad further comes with extra USB ports, an HDMI port, and an USB Type-C port for charging. There's a vent ensuring the phone won't get too hot, as well as a pad that the top of your phone can rest on so that nothing gets scratched up. Rumours suggest a brand new camera design that allows the Galaxy S9 to physically switch between two apertures, it's believed. Although several users had something to say on the social media about the DeX Pad, some eagle-eyed users spotted a feature, which can be termed as "unique" in flagship smartphones these days. As we can see, the Galaxy S9 can be placed horizontally on the new cradle, so users can still use the screen of the machine without any difficulty. The speaker design is also a bit different than what we're familiar with.
