Continuum is able to connect the phone to various monitors with and without cables, but it functions best with a $100 Display Dock produced by Microsoft, which joins to or charges the latest Lumia phones via the USB-C wire. This station does not built-in the Micro-USB port, such as the one used by past Windows smart phones.
