Default Dcking station + monitor

Ok so here we go its more of a cool idea but does anyone know if that will work?

Can i buy a docking station (computer one as in the ones with ethernet port monitor outputs i.e.) use my OTG cable and connect the phone to 2 monitors lets say ?

At work I`m using my laptop to connect to a server anyhow and using 2 additional monitors so was wondering could i do that with a phone - mainly will it support the montors?

Regards

For anything to work you'll need an MHL adapter that sends your display through the usb port - A simple OTG won't work..

Once you have MHL output (To HDMI) you can connect it to a monitor! Not so sure about 2 monitors at once though..
