One of the most interesting new features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 is arguably the ability to use it like a desktop PC, but to do that you need to buy a Samsung DeX Station which has just gone up for pre-order in the US, revealing a $149.99 (roughly £120/AU$200) price in the process.
Samsung Galaxy S8 DeX Station Now Available To Pre Order And it’s Not Cheap
The DeX Station is listed on both Amazon and Samsung’s own website at that price, though Samsung claims it won’t be shipping until early May, while Amazon reckons it will be releasing the DeX Station by April 20 – just about in time to get it alongside your Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus on their April 21 release date.
The DeX Station lets you connect the S8 to an external monitor and use it with a mouse and keyboard, running apps in multiple windows on a big screen. You can also use it to remotely access your home desktop, and a fan built in to the DeX Station itself will help keep your phone cool throughout.
And prices could be similar to the conversions above, as some small stores, such as MobileFun in the UK, already have it listed at around £130.
