Dex via USB C, no HDMI?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

 Will this be possible?  I've got an LG display that only has USB C inputs.  Right now I use it to power my Mac and drive it's video.  Would be amazing if dex supported just plugging the phone into the display via the usb C cable.  Otherwise I would need two HDMI adapters, or get a different display?

Thanks so much for this suggestion. I'll be happy to pass that along to the appropriate department.

Yes it is possible.  I just got my Note 9, plugged into my LG Ultrafine 4k display via the sole USB C cable coming from the display, and it worked perfectly.  DeX mode and charging.  Pretty cool!  Not sure if I will actually use it though, a bit more clumsy that a real laptop.

I had this in mind:

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-90LM0381-B01170-ZenScreen-15-6-Inch-Portable/dp/B071R31L1G?th=1

 

so I have note9 when I'm on the go plus bluetooth mouse and keybpoard and portable monitor for more stationary session instead of laptop.

I can't use LG ultrafine 4K with Samsung Galaxy note 9 as dex mode because its resolution is too low to read texts.

 

How can you make it possible?

In regard to the Asus portable monitor, with the Note 8 it only mirrors the screen so if you have an app like Sentio Desktop it then makes it look DeX/Desktop like. With the Note 9, DeX appears fine on the Asus monitor.

Currently using Note 9 and Asus MB16AP  (the one with internal battery).

I have the note 8 and the zenscreen mb16a. It's not working for me, although I've seen someone getting it to work with the S8. I'd love to figure out how to make the work, even with just screen mirroring.
