Samsung will drop support for Linux on DeX in Android 10


In an announcement today by Samsungthe program has been shelved Linux on DeXwhich allowed us to boot a complete Linux distribution on our mobile device with the help of a dock DeX compatible that would allow us to connect a screen, keyboard and mouse.

This folder already arrives with the android 10 betawhere DeX-enabled terminals currently running Linux on DeX on Android 9 will lose this capability when upgradingso that the company recommends users to create a backup of their data to avoid losses of any kind.

This does not mean that Samsung is finishing everything related to DeX, but only the program Linux on DeX will be affected and we will not be able to start a full distribution. In the same way, the rest of the DeX features are maintained, so that we do not lose all the full functionality of the system.

In any case, there will be many users who see how a useful functionality such as this is lost in an update, and possibly Let’s see how more than one terminal is left without updating due to the fact that some other user depends on this Linux distribution complete in your terminal enough so that the advantages of Android 10 are not enough to counteract the problem.
