Years after Samsung launched the Samsung DeX to transfer all the contents of the mobile to an external display, the Korean company launched last November Linux on Dex, a program that allowed users of Dex run the Linux system in the environment DeX and that was only available in the Galaxy Note 9 and the Tab S4.
The app Linux on Dex was developed by Samsung and the company Canonical, focusing primarily on issues of development and programming, fields in which Dex was somewhat limited. And although the program is still in beta phase, has now begun to spread to different devices from the koreans.

Unlike what happens with DeX, available on Samsung devices from the Galaxy S8, the scope of Linux on DeX is much more limited. In fact, up until now was only available in the Galaxy Note 9, and the Tab S4, something that is about to change thanks to the new update of the application and support Galaxy S9 and S9+, Galaxy s10e netbook, S10, S10+ and S10 5G, in addition to the Galaxy Tab S5e.
The app Linux on DeX is in beta version and at the time of its launch, Samsung opened a registration process prior to test, although to day of today, the company no longer accepts new registrations.
