Samsung DeX was introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S8 as a way to use your cellular phone as a desktop Pc. The initial plan was to dock the telephone into a DeX dock that connects to a monitor. This initial concept did not do the job out also very well considering the fact that the dock was far too significant, there was no way to use the cellular phone even though docked, it demanded an extra order, and nicely, it just turned frustrating to use. Samsung upgraded DeX with the launch of the Galaxy Take note 9 to no lengthier have to have a dock. Now, many thanks to a display screen we spotted in the Samsung Guidelines app, we know Samsung is even now functioning on a wi-fi DeX method.
The record of Samsung DeX is fairly quick. When it introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S8, it was rather cumbersome to use considering that it expected a dock and a mouse and keyboard to be related. With the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung received rid of the dock prerequisite (since the cellular phone has native DisplayPort Alternate Method assistance) though also allowing you use the phone’s display screen as a trackpad and keyboard. With the Galaxy Take note 10, Samsung built a Mac and Windows application so you could access DeX from your Computer (and unofficially, on Linux and Chrome OS). There was also a short stint with managing a GNU/Linux distribution by DeX, but that initiative was unfortunately canceled. Thankfully, we’re finally viewing progress on wireless Samsung DeX manner, which we read was staying labored on all the way again in late 2018. On the upcoming Galaxy Note 20, Samsung may well eventually let DeX to get the job done wirelessly.
I observed the over monitor in the Samsung Ideas app as portion of the configurations. On my Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Flip, the latter of which doesn’t basically guidance DeX, the web page showed up beneath the “Become a electricity user” segment. The very first page less than this section is the wireless Samsung DeX tip. The header is “DREAM_DEX_HEADER_USE_DEX_WIRELESSLY_M_Ideas.” This was very likely pushed to reside servers unintentionally. What is fascinating about the header is the “DREAM” at the starting. Dream is the codename of the Galaxy S10 sequence which tends to make me consider the Galaxy S10 and up really should get guidance for wi-fi DeX mode.
Samsung DeX wouldn’t be the to start with desktop method for Android products to get a wireless mode. Huawei launched wireless casting a whilst again for its EMUI Desktop mode. It is very good to see that Samsung is following suit and doing the job to improve DeX with significant features.
