Samsung just announced a new smart keyboard for mobile devices. 

The Samsung Smart Keyboard Trio 500 can pair up to three different devices at the same time via Bluetooth. It also allows you to switch between each device with one click of a button. In addition, the Smart Keyboard Trio 500 can be customised to open three of your favourite apps on each device with the three designated keys. 

The Smart Keyboard Trio 500 can work with the Galaxy smartphone or tablet in DeX mode. For those who are not familiar with DeX mode, it is a software platform that extends the Galaxy phone or tablet into a desktop computing experience at a push of a button.

Samsung also rolled out several new features for DeX on the Galaxy S20 last year, which include using the phone as a multi-touch trackpad and a Snap Assist-like split screen feature.

Despite its portable form factor, Samsung claims the Smart Keyboard Trio 500 has keys that are almost the same size as a regular keyboard. The Smart Keyboard Trio 500 is available in black and white, and will hit retail shelves in early May.
