Guide to the Galaxy #4: Become a Productivity Powerhouse with Samsung DeX

Introduced with the Galaxy S8 and compatible with the new Galaxy Note9, Samsung DeX, the company’s ultimate mobile productivity solution, allows users to easily connect their Galaxy device to an external display to enjoy a PC-like experience powered entirely by their phone.

 

 

Offering a simple setup and easy access to your phone’s apps and files, Samsung DeX allows you to transform virtually any place into a workplace. And now, thanks to the solution’s new support for easy-to-carry HDMI adapters, as well as its deep compatibility with the Galaxy Note9’s S Pen, mobile multitasking has never been simpler.

 

Let’s explore how the Galaxy Note9 and Samsung DeX can help you become a productivity powerhouse.

 

 

Made for Mobile Lifestyles

Samsung DeX offers an Android-based, PC-like interface that allows you to seamlessly access your phone’s apps, and adds comfort and convenience to viewing and editing documents and presentations, watching a favorite show or movie, mobile gaming, and much more.

 

 

The interface is easy to navigate, supports keyboard and mouse gestures such as shortcuts, scrolling and dragging and dropping, and features a variety of optimized apps that allow users to get the most out of working on a larger display. The ability to effortlessly toggle between apps and view their contents on a bigger screen makes multitasking a breeze, and makes working on your smartphone more convenient and efficient.

 

Your phone still functions as a phone when it’s plugged in, and calls, texts and settings are all accessible via the taskbar located in the lower right corner of your monitor.

 

 

More Ways to Connect

Convenience has always been key for Samsung DeX, which is why the solution offers a variety of simple ways to connect your Galaxy smartphone to a display and get down to work (or play). These include the previously introduced DeX Station and DeX Pad, as well as the solution’s new support for HDMI adapters*. To get started, simply connect your Galaxy Note9 to a monitor with one of those choices. It’s just that easy.

 

 

The solution’s support for HDMI connectivity means that the HDMI adapters can be easily dropped in a bag, creating more opportunities to enjoy a PC-like experience at home, at the office, or on the go.  Meanwhile, the DeX Station and DeX Pad support multiple screen resolutions (up to HD+ and WQHD) and open even more apps at once. With all choices, Samsung DeX is compatible with a broad range of accessories, including keyboards, mice, headsets and more.

 

Pick the (right) one that best suits your needs and start enjoying a more productive and convenient mobile experience with Samsung DeX.

 

 

Even Better with the Galaxy Note9

Samsung’s latest flagship device has introduced exciting ways for users to utilize Samsung DeX to streamline more aspects of their day. The Galaxy Note9’s newly added connectivity support for Samsung DeX enables users to enjoy a full Samsung DeX experience by simply connecting the smartphone to a display via compatible HDMI adapters.

 

 

Samsung DeX’s new dual mode support enhances multitasking, allowing you to work simultaneously on your display and on your Galaxy Note9, so you can watch a video on the display while jotting down notes on your Galaxy Note9 with S Pen. Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Note9 also lets you utilize the smartphone as a touch keyboard, touchpad, or a surface for drawing with the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) S Pen.

 

 

Speaking of, the S Pen’s deep Samsung DeX integration allows you to access its full range of capabilities when using the solution. And with its new remote control capability, the S Pen also functions as a handy clicker for delivering presentations on Samsung DeX-connected displays.

 

 

 

An Ever-expanding Samsung Ecosystem

When Samsung DeX launched in 2017, the solution had almost 40 strategic partners. Now, that number has almost doubled. The company continues to work closely with their ever-expanding list of partners—including popular software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe, Blackberry, Hancom Office and many more.

 

The service also includes support for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions, including those from Citrix, VMware and Amazon Web Service. This means that Samsung DeX can enhance mobility for business users, such as financial institutions. Mobile professionals can utilize Samsung DeX to enjoy PC-like experience that combines Windows and Android into one powerful productivity platform, and offers access to their Windows PC from virtually anywhere in the world.

 

 

The list of Samsung DeX-compatible devices continues to grow, and now, with the Galaxy Tab S4, extends to tablets as well. Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Tab S4 can be accessed standalone, or the device can be linked to a larger display using a HDMI connection. Samsung DeX integration creates more opportunities for users to multitask efficiently, and helps cement the Galaxy Tab S4’s status as the go-to-tablet for mobile productivity.

 

See for yourself how Samsung DeX and the new Galaxy Note9 can help you master multitasking.

Samsung Electronics today announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, a new 2-in-1 Android tablet designed for people who want to do more on the go—from home to the office and everywhere in between. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 delivers an experience that helps you work smarter by keeping you operating at the highest levels. Paired with a polished modern design, an immersive display, four speakers and enhanced entertainment features, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is the perfect device for those who need something portable like a tablet and capable like a PC.

We look forward to providing our customers with a sense of leisure and comfort knowing that this new addition to our ecosystem of connected devices is also packed with features to help them stay entertained.”

 

 

Productivity with Samsung DeX and S Pen

With the Galaxy Tab S4, Samsung is bringing Samsung DeX to the tablet for the first time. When connected to the optional Book Cover Keyboard (sold separately) or launched from the Quick Panel, the Galaxy Tab S4 powers on Samsung DeX, giving users the option to switch from the Android interface to a desktop experience. With Samsung DeX, you can open multiple desktop-style windows for your Android apps, including the Microsoft Office suite, directly on the Galaxy Tab S4, and re-size them when needed. Drag and drop content between apps and use keyboard shortcuts and commands for efficiency.

 

If more screen is needed, there is also an option to extend Samsung DeX to an external monitor with a compatible HDMI to USB-C multi-port adapter (not included). When connected, the Galaxy Tab S4 can serve as a track pad or a sketch pad, and new this year, the Galaxy Tab S4 can continue to work as a fully functional Android tablet, giving users two screens to accomplish tasks.

 

Whether at the office, at home, or on-the-go, the Galaxy Tab S4 keeps you going with a 7,300mAh battery that provides up to 16 hours of video playback.1 Additionally, with Samsung Knox, Samsung’s defense-grade mobile security platform, customers and companies can ensure critical information is protected at multiple levels of the device. IT managers can also tailor the employee interface to align with business needs.

 

Samsung’s S Pen comes in the box with the Galaxy Tab S4 to satisfy even more productive needs. It offers users a great way to express their creativity and communicate. They can take notes on the fly through the Screen-Off Memo feature, as well as navigate, translate and organize notes through Samsung Notes, and even send personalized texts through Samsung Live Message – all with the S Pen.

 

 

A Screen Fit for Any Job – or Movie

It’s easier to get more done when you have the right screen. Even the busiest professionals still take time to sit back with a game or movie. Now you can enjoy a more immersive experience on a device you can take anywhere. While similar in size to the Galaxy Tab S3, the Galaxy Tab S4 sports narrower bezels to fit a large 10.5-inch display with Super AMOLED technology, as well as a 16:10 screen ratio with 2560×1600, 287 pixels per inch (PPI) resolution for vivid picture detail and true-to-life visuals. When it comes to audio, the Galaxy Tab S4 also comes with four speakers tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos® immersive sound technology, which brings entertainment to life through moving audio that flows all around you. With Dolby Atmos®, the Galaxy Tab S4 supports crisper dialogue, enveloping sound fields, maximized loudness without distortion, and consistent playback volume.

 

 

Enhanced Connectivity to Make Your Life Easier

The Galaxy Tab S4 also features new and improved capabilities designed to manage your connected devices and lifestyle.

Boosting Law Enforcement Productivity, Safety and Data Security in the Field

 

Finally a viable solution to replace old laptops and desktop computers has arrived on the public safety scene with Samsung DeX in Car technology, making the work environment safer, more flexible and more efficient for police officers in the field by simply using a Samsung flagship Galaxy smartphone and the Samsung DeX service solution that brings an easy-to-use, PC-like experience to mobile handsets.

 

Bridging the gap between smartphone and desktop, Samsung DeX delivers an in-car computing capability by pairing the latest Galaxy smartphones with a mounted display and dedicated keyboard. By connecting the Samsung Galaxy S8/8+, S9/9+ or Note8 smartphone to DeX Pad or DeX Station, the smartphone functions as the car’s mobile data terminal.

 

The setup provides an optimal solution for forward-thinking police leaders and public safety professionals who recognize the importance of seamless mobile computing access both in the patrol car and while in the field.

 

Additionally, Samsung Galaxy smartphones include defense-grade mobile data security powered by Samsung Knox, helping agencies achieve Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) compliance when using the phone alone and with DeX.

 

 

“Mobile phones are more than just communication devices,” said Reginald Jones, Director of Public Sector Sales and Solutions. “They’re valuable public safety tools in terms of flexibility, security, efficiency and workplace productivity.”

 

Samsung DeX in Car helps reduce reliance on pen and pad or bulky in-car computer systems so police officers and other first responders can maintain greater situational awareness of their surroundings at all times, in addition to achieving a more streamlined workload.

 

With Samsung DeX in Car solution, the transition from a desktop experience inside the patrol car to accessing secure data in real-time while on the move, outside the vehicle, and then back in the station at the desk, is seamless.

 

The more comfortable viewing format makes full use of a horizontal display instead of stretching a smartphone interface, so officers can work on larger projects like incident reports, suspect identification or crime scene review.

 

For example, photos, videos and voice recordings gathered in the field on a smartphone are also securely processed on the smartphone, reducing redundant record-keeping when back at the desk. Through a seamless interface, Samsung DeX in Car allows data stored on the officer’s phone to be swiftly and securely transferred. Samsung Galaxy smartphones are armed with Samsung Knox, a platform that keeps the data inside a secure architecture throughout data migration – from gathering it, to processing it, to sharing it through other databases.

 

“The phone is becoming the critical technology tool for public safety officials, and Samsung DeX enables officers to use their Galaxy smartphone as a laptop replacement in the vehicle and in the station,” Jones said.

 

Samsung DeX in Car also helps remove some of the guesswork for officers before they respond to incidents. Having a Samsung Galaxy smartphone at the center of their workflow boosts the amount of data officers can receive. Instead of relying on radio transmissions and vague descriptions, officers get high-quality images, detailed reports and real-time updates.

 

“Samsung DeX offers a better return on investment all around,” said Jones. “It provides more flexibility and more security at a lower cost. The phone is the center point for public safety and using Samsung DeX offers the ultimate in mobility while being a powerful force multiplier for law enforcement officers.”

 

Today’s smartphones can support so many police operations, and the more an officer can do with a single device, the more they can do in the field to help their community.

Dock and Run: Samsung DeX Offers New Opportunities for Business and Entertainment

The ability to see something on a different scale often offers a new perspective. Launched with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and now available with the Galaxy Note8, Samsung DeX* lets users use their smartphone like a desktop by providing a seamless, mobile to desktop transition. Now, users have the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds in an ever-expanding ecosystem of partnerships, opening up new possibilities for coding, entertainment and productivity.

 

Out and About with Linux on Galaxy

At last, developers themselves are able to experience a truly mobile development environment.

 

Linux on Galaxy, an app demonstrated during SDC 2017 in San Francisco, is designed to free developers from their desks by providing a Linux OS environment for their Galaxy smartphone: anywhere, anytime, on-the-move. Smartphones with Linux on Galaxy are capable of having multiple operating systems running at the same time, so developers have the ability to work with their Linux-based distributions of choice on their mobile device, without restrictions. As well as using the Android OS, they can open the app to run any software they require in a Linux OS environment, giving developers the flexibility to choose.

 

 

What’s more, Linux on Galaxy is DeX-enabled, meaning that developers can seamlessly move from smartphone to desktop whenever they want to work on a larger screen with a keyboard and mouse.** Currently in its trial stage, Linux on Galaxy is already causing a buzz amongst developers.

 

Even More Entertainment

Samsung DeX complements the conventional mobile experience. In the world of entertainment, Samsung DeX now offers support for even more mobile games and video streaming services, so users can watch the action come to life on a larger screen.

 

 

Samsung’s partnerships with major video game developers such as Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory, Game Insight’s Survival Arena, Eric Froemling’s BombSquad and Netmarble’s Lineage 2 Revolution present popular mobile games on the immersive desktop setting through the Samsung Game Launcher app, with a keyboard and mouse for easier gameplay. This allows players to move from mobile to desktop, and back again, without disrupting their gaming experience. In addition, new titles – including Lineage 2 Revolution and Nexon’s AxE – are beginning to support Vulkan API in increasing numbers. The upcoming “mobile title” Square Enix FINAL FANTASY XV POCKET EDITION has been optimized for both Vulkan and DeX, pushing the boundaries of mobile gaming.

 

With Twitch, users of the video streaming service are provided with a better multitasking experience and can resize the window and play video while running other apps via Samsung DeX.

 

 

Powering Productivity

The service doesn’t just enhance mobile entertainment– it also heightens user productivity. Samsung DeX transforms the docked Samsung smartphone into a desktop-like workstation, increasing output for professionals on-the-go.

 

Users can enjoy an improved email experience—with email clients such as Samsung Email, Samsung Focus, Nine Email and MS Outlook—via an optimized interface with a desktop-like, three-column layout, flexible split view and multi composer.

 

Likewise, Samsung DeX enables a better collaboration with video conferencing from even more services such as Zoom, BlueJeans and GoToMeeting. Video conferencing has been made simpler with a seamless docking-undocking experience, support for screen and document sharing, and multitasking capabilities that allow the user to stay in the call while taking notes or sending email.

 

 

With the Galaxy Note8, the new All Apps user interface offers users a full view of up to 36 of their mobile apps at once, which is an increase from previous view of 25 apps. The enhanced UI makes app access and search more convenient, allowing users to identify and utilize apps faster.

 

As Samsung continues to expand its partner ecosystem with third-party developers and strives to broaden the use of Linux on its smartphone, the service’s ecosystem will continue to grow organically, offering a wider range of Samsung DeX-optimized apps, features and experiences for Galaxy users across business and entertainment.

 

* Samsung DeX is compatible with the Galaxy Note8 as well as the Galaxy S8 and S8+
