Samsung launched this option with the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 + in 2017. Since then only high-end phones like the Galaxy S8 and S8 + themselves, the Galaxy S9 Y S9 +, and the flagships Galaxy Note 8 Y Galaxy Note 9 they could bear it. But now, how could it be for less support has been added for the company’s new high-end phones, the Galaxy S10, S10 +, S10e Y S10 5G, the mobiles that were presented at the end of February of this year already have support to be able to use them with DeX.
But this is not only this, and it is that one of the most benefited parts has been Linux for DeX.
Now yes, more devices for Linux for DeX
Linux For DeX is an initiative that emerged in November last year, so it is relatively new. And is that Samsung partnered with Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, one of the most popular Linux distributions, to create a version for DeX, that’s right, in case you don’t know, if you had a Note 9 or a Tab S4 you could have Linux running on top of your Android operating system by connecting it to DeX.
That’s right, until now only the Galaxy Note 9 and the Tab S4 could enjoy Ubuntu, a complete version but adapted to the capabilities of the phone, designed above all for programmers and developers, so that they would be able to work directly from the mobile connected to the DeX running Linux, possibly one of the most popular systems among programmers.
Due to the amount of RAM, processor power and amount of storage and how light Linux is, it is possible to move it without problems with the phone, although you will not have the performance of a high-end or mid-high-end computer, since a mobile moving a desktop system is not the same as a desktop processor, but the performance is good for programming or surfing the Internet.
But the important thing is that now the new S10 in all its variants will also be able to use Ubuntu with DeX, In addition, it is possible that we will soon see the Note 8 and new Samsung A-series phones, which are still in the upper-mid-range, and are beginning to have enough power to move a desktop system.
