NexDock has announced its latest laptop dock, the NexDock Touch. The device builds on the NexDock 2 that NexDock released last year. However, while NexDock has previously sought crowdfunding for its products, the NexDock Touch is available to pre-order now for US$249. NexDock requires a US$100 down payment for the NexDock Touch and will request the additional US$149 a few weeks before shipping orders by August 31, 2020. NexDock claims to have factored in time to account for any delays relating to the coronavirus pandemic, too.

The NexDock Touch retains the same ports as the NexDock 2, which means it includes the following:

Input ports

  • 1x USB-C 3.1 with DisplayPort
  • 1x Full-sized HDMI-in (1.4a) port 

Other ports

  • 1x USB-C PD Charging port
  • 1x USB 3.0 Type-C 
  • 1x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 1x 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • 1x Micro SDXC reader

The NexDock Touch also features four 1 W speakers, which NexDock claims to have improved from the ones in the NexDock 2. As the photo below demonstrates, NexDock has made multiple changes from the NexDock 2. Firstly, NexDock has switched from a 13.3-inch IPS panel to a 14-inch touchscreen. The device also has noticeably slimmer side bezels than the NexDock 2, along with a larger trackpad. Underpinning all this is a 60 Wh battery, which is 9 Wh larger than the one that NexDock included in the NexDock 2.

The NexDock Touch can be used in multiple ways, including as a screen for the Raspberry Pi Model 4B. It will also work with any devices that support Samsung DeX or Huawei Desktop mode.
