This year, Samsung apart from its flagship smartphones also introduced DeX that enables the users to access the complete Windows 10 desktop from their devices. Now, the company has another big surprise as it plans to bring Linux to Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8.
The company announced its new app Linux on Galaxy at its developer conference which was held on 18th October, and while it is still in the trial phase, we are already pretty excited about its release.
As the name suggests, the new app will bring Linux to the Samsung smartphones which will help the users to code in their preferred Linux distribution while they are on the go.
DeX, which is the compact docking station for the Samsung’s new devices thanks to the new app will soon enable your phone to provide a Linux desktop experience.
The best thing about this new app is that if you have to head out of the house, you can grab your phone with you to code away as all the programs will be with you all the time. With the big screen of Note 8, the Linux users will get to complete their work without minimum problems.
No doubt, the new Linux app is not for everyone and won’t get the excitement from the regular smartphone users, but at the same time, it will provide a big help to all the developers out there in the wild.
Earlier this month, Huawei took a jibe at Samsung by mocking DeX while showing how the Huawei Mate 10 can connect to a desktop with just one wire but this new move may as well establish that Samsung truly has a better vision for tomorrow.
