There have been loads of rumors and speculations regarding the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+. As the launch date draws closer, more information related to these devices surfaces online. This time, we are not talking about specs or hardware – those have long been covered. These smartphones will be launched with a device which is similar to Dex Station which came with Galaxy S8 and S8+. This Dex Station allows Galaxy S8/S8+ users to connect their smartphones with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse for a desktop-like experience. Similarly, the Galaxy S9/S9+ would come with the ‘Dex Pad’ which is slightly different from the Dex Station.
The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) recently received Samsung’s trademark registration for Dex Pad. This registration affirms that the South Korean manufacturing giant will launch these smartphones with a new Dex accessory. Considering the name change, the new Dex accessory should come with slight changes from the former. Rumors have it that the Dex Pad works more like a wireless charging pad and users do not necessarily have to dock their phones. This accessory will definitely improve the overall performance of the Galaxy S9/S9+, however, there would be an additional cost for purchasing the Dex Pad which might turn off some users.
