Resource SamMobile, referring to its own sources, claims that the Samsung Dex dock will soon receive support for two displays. The new feature can be announced simultaneously with the presentation of the Galaxy Tab S4 tablet.

According to preliminary data, the Galaxy Tab S4, along with the iris scanner, will be compatible with Samsung Dex. Thus, the manufacturer in the last update of the docking station will add the ability to use the tablet as a second monitor. Similarly, Samsung Dex will work with smartphones of the Galaxy S and Note series, although in this mode the tablet is more preferable.

It’s not yet clear how users can connect the Galaxy Tab S4 to Samsung Dex. As you know, the form factor of the original gadget model and the new DeX Pad not suitable for tablets. Perhaps, the company will come up with some solution, or they will present a new generation of Samsung Dex.

With the release of Android 8.0 Oreo on Samsung’s flagship smartphones, the docking station received several new features, including the ability to use the screen of a mobile device as a trackpad. Support for two displays is a logical extension of this concept. It is expected that Galaxy Tab S4 will be presented at IFA 2018, which will be held in early September in Berlin.
