An increasing number of Android phones are launching with the option of connecting to external monitors to leverage their increasingly powerful specs into a more complete PC experience. For example, there is the DeX function baked into One UI from Samsung, an OEM that has approved the new Targus Universal USB-C Phone Dock to work with its software.
This new dock allows a device slotted into it via its type-C port access to a range of others, an HDMI port compatible with external monitors with specs of up to 4K/60Hz included. The dock also has 2 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports for various uses; SD and microSD card slots and a "replacement" 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port with USB-PD 3.0 pass-through charging, although it is restricted to 18W.
Targus also claims that its new Universal USB-C Phone Dock can help users with video-conferencing, using their phone's rear or selfie cameras. Its (portrait) viewing angle can be adjusted through 60 to 75 degrees while using this feature.
