After a small wait, the new Samsung Dex Pad for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ has arrived in Australia and is now available to order for $149.

The new Dex Pad is an upgraded version of Samsung’s Dex dock, which launched with the Galaxy S8/S8+ last year. The Dex Pad enables your phone to give you a ‘desktop-like experience’ when attached to the Dex Pad, with your phone able to be used as a trackpad whenever it’s attached. The Dex Pad has dual USB ports and a HDMI port to connect a keyboard and Mouse – if using the phone as a track pad isn’t your thing.

As well as being compatible with the Galaxy S9/S9+, the phone is also able to be used with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8 Active and Galaxy Note8.

You can purchase the Dex Pad from Samsung Australia directly through their website, or Telstra has it listed on their website as well for the same price.

    Will this work with the Otterbox Defender case on the Note 8? I really like the idea of the Dex but refuse to use my phone without a case and to remove the case continually just to use the Dex.

    Did a bit of a search and found that even a short cable extension caused some degradation of signal and some users lost USB functionality on the DeX, but using a small extender adapter seemed to work fine.

    We’ll have Chris or Jason test it out.
