This dongle is old news. Been around for 18 months at least, why are they writing article about new release???
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2018Honestly this is why i sonetimes prefere Apple or other companies. Why not make it compatible ... moreYou mean Note 9. Because they want you to buy a 9. Apple do this too. Remember the forced memory issue with the iPhone or inability to upgrade older iPads with iOS 11, despite them having the power to run it? Built in obsolescence.
This is indeed a nice thing. I see how it could be useful.
To me, personally - this would be useless. But for some people this could be best feature yet.
I still have the Samsung MHL cable that I used on my Note 4. It did the same thing, displaying the contents of the Note 4 screen (or other MHL compliant phone) onto an attached monitor. I used the Note 4 with our video projector with Google Slides as if it was a laptop. Displayed in 1080P and worked like a charm! (Had mouse and Bluetooth keyboard connected.)
If Adobe ported FULL on Photoshop and Illustrator to Android, (no way Premiere would run on a phone - yet, although their new Rush app does of course), then Samsung could literally make laptops obsolete overnight with DeX.
Most business users only do documents and spreadsheets, which are already handled by Google Docs and Office 365, so they don't even need the Adobe CC apps.
Samsung should really push Android/Chrome app devs to make their apps work full screen before Apple do something similar with the very powerful iPhone (8, X, X Max?) that has A series CPU hardware wasted on youth.
Honestly this is why i sonetimes prefere Apple or other companies. Why not make it compatible with S8 S9 and Note 8. All devices are capable of this and you enlarge the customer base. Why restrict it to Note8. Its cuatomer alienation instead of cusfomer loialty
LG Superfan, 09 Sep 2018Yes but this dongle is similar to Easy projectionHuh?
Just place your Note on the wireless charger.
Where have you been the past 5 years?
Kiyasuriin, 09 Sep 2018I think Dex mode was prior to Easy Project. First introduced with the S8 and S8+Yes but this dongle is similar to Easy projection
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2018But with the S8s you had to use Sammy's $150 dock. With the Mate 10 it was a simple usb-c to H... moreTrue. Samsung's solution is indeed clumsier compared to Huawei, However. Can you charge the phone while docking it to that cable? ;3

Buy this one for about $11. It's a dongle. So no loose connections unlike cables.

In all seriousness though. For a plastic-covered wire that doesn't have an embedded light saber inside, this is pretty expensive.
+1 for a light saber version
