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.
