Samsung is said to be working on a new version of DeX pad that could be launched alongside the Galaxy S9.Samsung

We are just a couple of weeks away from the official announcement of Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+. Both the devices are scheduled for release on February 25 at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018 and come along with some new accessories.

In the latest leak, it has been revealed that Samsung will be launching a new accessory called DeX Pad similar to last year's DeX Station. Samsung DeX Pad will allow a user to dock their Galaxy phones and connect peripherals devices like an external monitor, a keyboard or a mouse.

The upcoming DeX Pad will also allow users to use the phone display as a touchpad or may be a virtual keyboard.

Famous leakster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has also shared a couple of images of the upcoming DeX Pad on his twitter handle. The second image posted by Evan clearly shows that the Galaxy S9 can be laid flat on the new docking station, which goes comfortably under the user's palms and fingers.

Samsung has also included a full-size HDMI port for connecting an external monitor, two USB-A ports and a USB-C port for power input.

Samsung DeX Pad will also be compatible with some older Galaxy series handsets like the S8 family and last year's Galaxy Note 8.  

Samsung is expected to start selling the DeX Pad along with Galaxy S9 and S9+, which is probably sometime in March. The Samsung DeX Pad is expected to cost around $150.
