This $99 dock makes your Galaxy S9 a 'laptop', sells May 13

Or, preorder a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus from Samsung and get the Dex Pad for free.

When you plug your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus into the Samsung Dex Pad dock, you're able to use and see all the apps and photos from your phone on a much larger monitor. In essence, your phone becomes a mini computer for hooking into a larger screen.

Samsung announced that starting Monday, for a limited time, when you preorder a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus on Samsung.com, it will throw in the $99 Dex Pad for free. The promotion runs from 11:00 a.m. EDT on April 9, 2018 through 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 30.

If you already have a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, or plan to buy through a different retailer, the Dex Pad will go on sale May 13 for $99.99. 

In addition to the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, the Dex Pad will also work with:

  • Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
  • Galaxy Note 8
  • Galaxy S8 Active
  • So long as the phone has updated to Android 8.0 Oreo
