Plugable’s USB-C Phone Cube for DeX-Compatible Devices
Meet Plugable’s first phone dock, the Phone Cube (UD-CUBE-15W). Transform your Samsung DeX capable device into a full-fledged desktop system with the mobile Phone Cube that’s smaller than your smartphone itself. With the Phone Cube, drive an external HDMI display, enjoy access to three USB ports for your USB peripherals such as your keyboard and mouse, maintain a gigabit wired Ethernet connection, while keeping your phone charged with 15W of power—all through a single high-speed USB-C connection.
A compatible phone connects to the Phone Cube via an included detachable USB-C cable, rather than being directly affixed onto the docking station. This means that you aren’t limited to navigating through the phone while it’s stuck sitting on a dock. Rather, unlock further potential with your setup by being able to hold and pick up the phone while you utilize your desktop experience to navigate through your favorite apps.
Tiny but Mighty
With dimensions of 2.5in x 2.3in x 1.4in, the Phone Cube is smaller than your Samsung Galaxy smartphone and can save valuable desk space by eliminating clutter. With the Phone Cube, Plugable helps users streamline their work-spaces and become more efficient and productive by getting their ports back in a compact and convenient dock.
Multitask Like Never Before
The Phone Cube connects directly to your smartphone with a detachable USB-C to USB-C cable, rather than being stuck on top of the docking station in a static position. This means you can enjoy a wide array of multitasking abilities, including being able to work through your desktop experience while also replying back to your text messages, or taking a phone call.
This also means that you can use the Phone Cube regardless of your phone case—no matter how bulky and protective your case may be.

The Phone Cube fulfills the desktop experience by providing the following additional ports:
1x USB 3.0 port, for your USB storage drives2x USB 2.0 ports, for your mouse and keyboard1x HDMI, for your monitor1x RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, for a wired Internet connection

Incompatible Systems and Setups
The Phone Cube is not compatible with devices that use a micro USB or Lightning connection. DisplayPort monitors are not supported.The Ethernet port will not work with the Samsung Galaxy S8 series smartphones.
Power and Charging
The Phone Cube is designed to be either self-powered (with the power adapter) or bus-powered (no power adapter).It is recommended to keep the Phone Cube self-powered with the included power adapter, as that allows the connected phone to charge with up to 15W of power.Using the Phone Cube bus-powered will use up the connected phone’s battery, but is great for on-the-go scenarios such as giving a presentation.
