Samsung will release a private beta of Linux on DeX on 12 November. Linux on DeX will allow users to open a Ubuntu desktop from the Note 9.
Linux on DeX will only support one version of Ubuntu (16.04 LTS) and will only work on Note 9 and Tab S4 devices that have at least 8GB storage and memory greater than 4GB, according to Samsung. All packages must be compiled for Arm 64.
Samsung claims that the new Linux on DeX interface can be used by developers to work "on the go" and in the case of the Tab S4, it will have a more complete tablet interface.
"Linux in DeX can slow down or shut down suddenly in case of memory shortage," warns the Korean company.
If you're still interested, you can sign up to try the private beta version.
Let's note that Linux on DeX needed a base first, but the latest Samsung devices only need a USB-C to HDMI cable.
