Beelink EX D1 / Expand X D1 is a hub with the ability to connect a smartphone/tablet and a PC and switch modes between these devices.
Beelink EX D1 Details
This time, Beelink has prepared a rather unusual device, which is an interesting accessory for everyday use. Constructed of a smartphone/tablet arm with an adjustable angle of inclination.
The device has a rich number of interfaces: HDMI Output (connected display), 2x USB 2.0 (for keyboard and mouse), and MicroUSB (connect PC), USB Type-C Input (connect the smartphone), and USB Type-C (connecting charger). In the middle, there is a red button for switching modes – smartphone or PC.
Expand X D1 Overview Features
Dual-mode switching (smartphone mode and desktop mode) known from Beelink GT-R Pro Mini PC. In Beelink GT-R Pro, the device has a switching function, and the set includes a smartphone/tablet holder.
On the other hand, in EX D1 this functionality was separated by creating separate, additional devices. You don’t need to search for a screencasting app, just connect your smartphone via dedicated USB Type-C and run the Same Screen Function.
Availability and price
At the moment, we do not have exact information when the Expand X D1 Hub with mode switching will appear, but the prices will probably be around $40. We hope that the device will soon appear in the Beelink portfolio.
