We just covered the leaked power banks that Samsung is expected to reveal alongside the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
The Galaxy S8s DeX Station (short for Desktop Experience) has leaked as well. This will enable you to hook up your S8 to an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard to interact with desktop applications for improved productivity.
Render of the DeX docking station
The DeX Station will have two USB-A ports, an Ethernet port, a USB-C port for power, HDMI port for external video, and the standout feature is the docks built-in fan that offers active cooling while you are switching between fifteen app windows at the same time (if youre a serious multitasker). Clearly, Samsung doesnt want to risk the dock catching fire while running external video up to 4K resolution at 30 fps.
Theoretically, you should be able to plug in an external USB-C monitor and use that power to charge the S8. Also, for the record, the Ethernet port is rated for 100Mbps, while the USB-A ports use 2.0 speeds.
Product listing for DeX Station
The DeX Stations product listing also shows us a recommended retail price of 150 EU. Were looking forward to Samsungs event on March 29 to see the DeX Station in action, and also get a look at what other accessories Samsung has to offer.
