The dock is now all set to be succeeded by the next-generation DeX Pad. It is said that on February 25, apart from the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung will also unveil its all-new DeX.  But, thanks to this famous leakster Evan Blass, the alleged ‘DeX Pad’ images are all over the internet, giving valuable insights.
