Watch: Ubuntu Linux Running on Galaxy S8 with Samsung DeX – Concept Demo
Samsung recently published a new video on its YouTube channel demoing the recently launched “Linux on Galaxy” concept it introduced last month for Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note8 smartphones.
Promising to bring the full Linux PC experience to your mobile device, the “Linux on Galaxy” concept relies on the Samsung DeX dock station, which transforms a Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, or Note8 smartphone into a full-fledged desktop or workstation if you attach a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Basically, Samsung DeX offers convergence for your Galaxy smartphone, something that Canonical wanted to create with its Ubuntu Linux operating system and the Unity 8 user interface that it’s no longer under development. And now, Samsung wants to give you the full Linux PC experience on your smartphone.
