Samsung DeX Plugable Products

Samsung’s Desktop eXperience (aka Samsung DeX) lets you connect your supported Samsung device to a keyboard, mouse, and external monitor for a desktop-like experience.

Now, Samsung has opened DeX functionality to a broader array of products allowing for a more comprehensive range of connection possibilities. Plugable has been actively researching and testing our docks, hubs, adapters, and cables for DeX compatibility. We are happy to announce several products that will help provide you with the flexibility and creativity to tailor your mobile desktop experience to your specific workflow environments. We have split up these products into five categories below.
