9 Things To Know About Samsung's Galaxy Note9


DeX

In recent years, Samsung has been promoting its DeX offering as a way to run a desktop Android experience off a mobile device. While DeX was previously only available by connecting a smartphone to a docking station or pad, users can now use DeX by connecting the Note9 to a display via a USB-C to HDMI dongle. The Note9 can then be used as a touchpad for navigating in the Android desktop, or users can connect a compatible keyboard and mouse. This greatly simplifies DeX by not requiring users to tote extra hardware around, Samsung executives said -- which gets the feature closer to its ultimate promise of letting users just use one device for all of their needs.
