As previously reported, Samsung is working on Microsoft Continuum like feature for Galaxy S8. Now new information about Samsung DeX Station surfaces online. The new Samsung DeX Station will bring desktop experience on Galaxy S8.
According to new reports, Samsung DeX Station will be used to access desktop mode in Galaxy S8. This new feature will turn your phone into a big-screen projector and a big-time productivity tool. You can use your apps and see your content on a larger screen.
Samsung described DeX:
Application software, namely, for projecting the screen of the mobile device to displays via computer peripheral devices and wireless networks; computer peripheral devices; computer software for wireless network communications; computer software, namely, for controlling user interface mode adaption; computer software for use in computer access control.
However, Samsung would not be the first Android company to try this feature with Android. Previously, Motorola introduced OneCompute in June 2016. Problem is that Android suffer from a shortage of applications designed to be used with a mouse and keyboard and not offer as good an experience as Microsoft’s Continuum does with Windows 10 Mobile phones.
