With the launch of the Galaxy S8, Samsung is debuting a new feature for getting productive with a phone. The feature, called DeX, essentially turns the Galaxy S8 or S8+ into a desktop computer (using some special hardware and software). Users plug their S8 into the DeX dock, and the dock connects to an HDMI-compatible monitor, a keyboard and a mouse. The phone can then power an Android desktop on the monitor, and users can access mobile apps such as those from Microsoft Office and Adobe. Also, users can access Windows apps through a virtual desktop (VDI providers for DeX include Citrix, VMware and Amazon Web Services). The promise of the technology is that on-the-go employees can more easily transition between mobile and office work environments by relying on a single device.

Along with the new hardware and software, DeX is made possible by the enhanced processing power in the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which features the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-a-chip. HP has previously deployed the concept behind DeX with its Elite x3 smartphone, which can power a Windows desktop using a special dock.
