The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might not come across as a sizable upgrade compared to the Galaxy Note 8, but it does come with a few interesting features, one of which is the DeX support. The feature allows the smartphone to offer a PC-like experience when connected to a TV or a monitor. While other Samsung flagships do support this feature, the company this time around has changed the way it works. Now, users do not require a unique dock to get access to the DeX experience. Instead a single USB-C to HDMI cable will allow users to make the move to a bigger screen. And now, Samsung has released its official dongle for purchase as well.
Spotted by GSMarena, the Samsung USB-C to HDMI adapter is currently available on Amazon for $31, which is approximately Rs 2,240. While it seems reasonable, users can still invest in a third-party cable if they are not very keen on using the Samsung’s original accessory.
The Amazon listing boasts the adaptor to feature HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.2 standards. It also supports UHD and 4K resolution at 60Hz refresh rate. Besides getting access to the DeX experience, the cable can also be used for simply mirroring the smartphone screen on a bigger display.
