Although the Galaxy S10 is already making big strides, it does not mean that Samsung is leaving its current flagship smartphone behind.

Galaxy S9 (Plus): Samsung phones with DeX support without additional hardware

Due to the lower RAM memory, it would therefore be conceivable that Samsung releases the new DeX feature only for the Galaxy S9 Plus.
