Samsung Brings Linux Support to DeX on Its Flagships

Technology continues to evolve, which Samsung calls DeX, allowing you to use the phone on an external display like a computer.

In fact, DeX could be used to run Android apps on computers with Linux operating systems as well. However, users could not run desktop applications as in Windows. Fortunately, the company hasn’t neglected Linux users either, bringing Linux support in DeX mode to its latest flagship phones and surprisingly mid-range tablets as well. In this way, Linux users will be able to experience the desktop experience while using Dex.

DeX’s Linux support will delight most application developers. From now on, they will be able to develop mobile software directly using smartphones. At the same time, non-programmer Linux users are also very happy with the arrival of this support.

DeX’s Linux support was initially only available for the Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4. A new update to the DeX app makes it possible to use the DeX mode of Galaxy S10 models and Galaxy S9 and S9+ on Linux. However, in order for the devices to receive the update, they must have the Samsung One UI user interface based on Android Pie.


Galaxy Tab S5e’s entry into this list is also surprising news. Samsung had very high system requirements to use DeX on Linux, but the mid-range tablet’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor and 4GB of RAM seem to suffice.
