Meet Plugable’s first phone dock, the UD-CUBE-15W. Transform your Samsung DeX capable device into a full-fledged desktop PC with the mobile UD-CUBE-15W that’s smaller than your smartphone. With the Phone Cube, drive an external HDMI display, enjoy access to three USB ports for your USB peripherals such as your keyboard and mouse, maintain a gigabit wired Ethernet connection, while keeping your phone charged with 15W of power — all through a single high-speed USB-C connection.
A compatible phone connects to the Phone Cube via an included detachable USB-C cable, rather than being directly affixed onto the docking station. This means that you aren’t limited to navigating through the phone while it’s stuck sitting on a dock. Rather, unlock further potential with your setup by being able to hold and pick up the phone while you utilize your desktop experience to navigate through your favorite apps.
On top of that, a detachable USB-C cable also means you don’t have to worry about your phone case preventing a proper fit with the USB-C connector — no matter how bulky and protective your case may be.
