NexPad Ingeniously Converts Your Laptop Into A Dual Monitor Setup

The launch of NexPad, a portable display with built-in magnets that can be attached to laptops for a vertical dual-screen layout, was announced by Nex Computer LLC today. According to research, having two displays increases productivity. The huge gap between the monitors, which reduces the vision, makes employing side-by-side monitors not always ideal. Additionally, the side-by-side arrangement extends beyond people's field of vision, which may strain the neck.

A second display at a raised height from NexPad's solution can lessen neck pain and aid in better posture, increasing convenience and productivity. By connecting multiple cell phones to the inventive NexPad's USB-C connector, you can also get the most out of them. Strong magnets inside the NexPad allow smartphones to install safety as a secondary screen. The NexPad has a svelte aluminum frame, a 12-inch full HD IPS touchscreen with extremely slim bezels, built-in magnets, and a kickstand with an integrated USB-C cable slot.


The NexPad still features a 12-inch laminated display and a 277 x 250 x 63 mm chassis. Thus the firm hasn't altered the specifications. The NexPad, according to Nex Computer, sports an IPS display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution.


For those who are unaware, the standout feature of the NexPad is its ability to transform an Android smartphone into a tablet. The main objective of NexPad is to make use of Android's built-in desktop mode. The NexPad also has a USB Type-C port for connecting a smartphone. Numerous magnets are also included for attaching your smartphone while holding the NexPad. You may use your mounted smartphone as a touchpad or extra screen, claims Nex Computer. The device weighs 736 g, which is a sizable amount, and when combined with a smartphone, it might reach close to a kilogram. This is perhaps the reason why NexPad includes a kickstand to allow for tablet use on a table.

The NexPad also contains a tiny HDMI 2.0 port, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports with pass-through charging, and a USB 2.0 Type-C port for data transfer in addition to the USB-C port. The NexPad could act as a backup laptop screen.

Looks and Price

The cost of the NexPad remains $249 plus $19 for delivery from Nex Computer. Nex Computer provides an example of how the NexPad may be fastened to a laptop's lid. Presumably, the front panel of the former's magnets interacts with the magnets found in the majority of laptop top covers.
