Samsung DeX and Plugable Products

Samsung’s Desktop Experience (known as Samsung DeX), lets you connect your supported Samsung device to a keyboard, mouse, and external monitor for a desktop-like experience. While this has been in the works for awhile, DeX mode was previously restricted to Samsung-branded docks. Now, Samsung has opened DeX functionality up to a wider array of USB-C docks, adapters, and video cables so you can get even more functionality with a variety of connections.

Plugable has a variety of different devices and cables that are compatible with DeX. We’ve split them up into four categories below.
