Once the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 came out, Samsung put a lot of emphasis on turning it into a PC via the whole Dex thing. Basically you place the phone in a dock/cradle thingie and it connects to a monitor, mouse and keyboard, replacing a PC. Now how about replacing a full fledged laptop? Designers Kwanjan Ryu and Jaejin Bong took it upon themselves to showcase that.

This Samsung laptop concept may remind you of the ASUS PadFone a bit or several other similar projects, but one thing is clear: we’re dealing with a stylish laptop that gives the MacBooks a run for their money. Rendered using Rhinoceros 5.0 and Keyshot, the Samsung Dex Book is basically a 14 inch widescreen laptop, that can host a Galaxy Note 8 into the keyboard area.

It’s got a bigger than usual chin, flat keys, a pretty slim profile and a not so narrow bezel screen. The Dex Book doesn’t have its own CPU, cooler and GPU, so it can carry a larger battery. The Note 8 supplies those and possibly also the RAM. A special slim sound bar will be included for improved acoustics, within the palm rest area.

This device can also host the Galaxy S8 and S8+, not just the Note 8. Its screen offers a 21:9 ratio and a resolution of 3360 x 1440 pixels. The phone can also be used as a trackpad from what I understood, which makes sense, but we can’t help but think that a regular trackpad would have also been nice. The laptop has a Bixby button and Samsung Pay support.

All in all the core idea is good, it just needs some minor retouching. Check out the source below for many, many more details.

    Interesting concept, however I would imagine this would be a rather expensive toy, if it is not forward compatible, it would be obsolete with the next iteration of Samsung’s Galaxy or Note.
