Galaxy Note 9 Will Be Able to Get Hooked to an External Monitor Without Requiring an Expensive DeX Accessory
To use peripherals or an external monitor with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus requires the use of a DeX Station or a DeX Pad, but chances are that you will not need that expensive accessory when the Galaxy Note 9 is officially announced on August 9. Apart from getting an upgraded S-Pen, looks like there is something else to look forward to from the imminent launch.
Attaching Peripherals to Use With the Galaxy Note 9 Will Still Mean You Have to Purchase a Monitor With Several USB Ports
By eliminating the need for docking the Galaxy Note 9, customers will be able to save up money which they can invest in purchasing the upcoming flagship, which is already expected to sport a ludicrous price tag. The Type-C port on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 is going to be utilizing the DisplayPort interface, meaning that you will easily be able to hook up the device to an external monitor if you want to extend the phone’s screen real estate.
The only problem is that now since it just features that single Type-C USB port, customers will need to be a bit creative when it comes to making a purchase. For example, if they want to use the Galaxy Note 9 to transform into a device that will give them a small degree of work done in the form of productivity, then it means that these consumers will have to purchase a monitor that sports multiple USB-A ports to accommodate the use of a keyboard a mouse, or something else.
Even if the monitor features a single USB-C port, attaching a USB-C dongle with a boatload of ports will also get the job done. However, we will need to see if you can attach the same USB-C dongle to the Galaxy Note 9 and attach multiple peripherals through it, and this also includes a monitor.
Looks like we will know when the smartphone is officially launched. Do you think this is a feature that Samsung should standardize on its remaining high-end smartphones, perhaps through a software update? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
