NexDock Touch is a touchscreen laptop dock for smartphones

The Nexdock Touch docking station transforms smartphones and mini Pcs into a notebook with a 14-inch IPS touchscreen. In addition to Android smartphones, small Pcs such as the Raspberry Pi 4 or Odroid C4 as well as iOS devices can be turned into a touch notebook. In addition, the docking station can serve as a second display.

The smartphone becomes a notebook

In addition to the 14-inch IPS touch display with 1,920 1,080 pixels (FHD), the Nexdock Touch has a battery with a capacity of 60 watt hours and two integrated speakers. With the help of a magnetic mount, the so-called "Magnetic Side Mount", smartphones connected to the dock are to be kept safely in place. However, the accessories must be purchased in addition to the dock.

The connection between the Nexdock and the smartphone is established using USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type C, of which the docking station has a total of three.
