The DeX dock allows users to run the Galaxy Note 8 (as well as S8-generation devices) on a dedicated monitor with a keyboard and mouse. It was offered as a pre-order gift to S8+ buyers in Korea, though many units were passed on to the secondhand market. Who knows what if Europeans will do the same with their units or would rather receive a 256GB microSD card and wireless charger or 360-degree camera.
Many phone manufacturers will often pair their products with early order perks, but Samsung has been piling on ammunition — it has to make up for last year’s financially disastrous Note 7 recall and, potentially, a rumored severely expensive price tag.[alert variation=”alert-warning”]Update: Blass has corrected his disclosure about the combinations of perks that will supposedly be offered with Note 8 pre-orders in most areas:
CORRECTION: the options are as follows
1. 256GB card + wireless charger
2. 360 cam
Sorry for the confusion. https://t.co/Db42n4kVCf
