Samsung starts rolling out Android Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 concept art looks AWESOME

It's called the DeX Pad, and it lets you use the smartphone's display as a touchpad or a virtual keyboard in Samsung's DeX desktop interface. What we need to witness are real-life performance and speed tests because they are more reliable.

You can also see it has the HDMI output and USB-C connectors of the original, plus two rectangular USB 2.0 ports for other accessories. The DeX Pad which is now available in the market is quite expensive at $149.99 and it features a number of ports including two USB ports, one ethernet, one HDMI and USB Type C. While the focus will undoubtedly be on the handsets, the firm is also set to show off some new accessories as well. Unlike the DeX Dock, however, the DeX Pad lies the Galaxy S9 flat and allows the user to use the phone as a touch pad and/or keyboard.

We've already got a pretty good idea of what the Galaxy S9 phone will have to offer, including design, specs, and features, but that doesn't mean leaks are going to stop. Android Police pointed out that the Ethernet port may be located on the side of the DeX Pad. But I can't imagine there was no way to make the dock look better when a phone isn't it. A device getting hotter than usual would be typical if it's laying down on a surface while being used for something that demands a lot of power.

Fresh information about the DeX Pad has come from Evan Blass with a very solid track record of upcoming products.

Recent flagships such as the iPhone X, the Google Pixel 2, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and others, have ditched the headphone jack and it seems that the trend is gaining ground. The photos reveal that the next-gen Galaxy S phone will flaunt a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is missing from several flagships launched recently.
