Samsung has announced an array of improvements to its Bixby digital assistant, such as UI changes for its app and newly-added support for the company's desktop-like interface, DeX.
Samsung starts rolling out One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S20 series, bringing wireless DeX support, camera improvements, support for Android gesture navigation on third-party launchers, and more.
The Samsung Tips app on some Galaxy flagships is displaying references to a yet unreleased 'wireless DeX' mode. The feature naming hints that it could also be ported to phones as old as the S8.
A Samsung DeX update for the Galaxy S20 flagships running One UI 2.1 brings with it better window snapping using a mouse, multi-touch gesture support for the touchpad, and new Bixby routine features.
Samsung has released a DeX app for Windows and Mac devices, which lets users use their Samsung phones in a desktop-like interface through their computer rather than using a standalone screen.
Samsung's top-end smartphones can power a PC-like experience with the use of its DeX accessories. While the DeX Pad was previously priced at $99, it has now been discounted by 47 percent.
The manufacturer has been making strides towards creating a simpler experience for using Samsung DeX, and it seems like wireless connections could be the next big step for its big-screen interface.
The DeX Pad, which only came out in February and allows users to turn their Galaxy smartphone into a desktop-like experience, has now dropped by 30% off its $99.99 retail price via Amazon Prime.
We are a few weeks away from the announcement of Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. A new leak has revealed the Dex Pad and seems to confirm earlier rumors about new design and functionality.
There are rumors circulating that Samsung could give attendees a glimpse of the next Galaxy S handset at CES 2018. The firm could also be looking to launch a new DeX device with the handsets.
You can now pre-order Samsung's DeX Station, designed for the PC-like desktop experience on its new Galaxy S8 and S8+. It includes a cooling fan, USB-A and Ethernet ports, and a USB-C charging port.
After weeks of rumors, Samsung has unveiled its new Galaxy S8 flagships, featuring iris and facial recognition, a desktop dock mode, dual-curved 'Infinity Display', a new digital assistant, and more.
There will probably be very little to be surprised about when Samsung reveals its Galaxy S8 and S8+. Now we are getting more details about the DeX Station that will be released alongside the handsets.
Although we have been hearing news about Samsung's upcoming desktop mode for the Galaxy S8, dubbed 'DeX', for quite some time, a new alleged leak gives us a further hint of the upcoming feature.
An image of Samsung's new Galaxy S8 has emerged, along with extensive details of the new devices, including 5.8- and 6.2-inch pressure-sensitive displays, DeX desktop mode, iris scanner, and more.
The new Galaxy S8 is said to have an exceptionally large display area, 64GB storage, Dual Pixel rear camera with object recognition, and 'DeX', a desktop mode similar to that of Windows 10 Mobile.
