Samsung DeX has connectors: USB-C (to connect the smartphone itself), two USB 2.0 (for mouse, keyboard and other peripherals), Ethernet (Internet connection), and HDMI port with 4K support. The weigh of this device is only 230 grams. In this docking station there is also a noiseless cooling system to make use as comfortable as possible.
The design Samsung DeX is beautiful. It looks like a little animal from the future, and you think that the future has already come, but no: the space has not yet won. However, let’s not talk about the sad, and DeX photo we put below:

Samsung DeX will be useful in everyday life for absolutely everyone. So your smartphone can replace a computer, which means you can now say with absolute certainty to your friends: “and I have a real computer in my pocket!”.
