It seems that after just 11 months Samsung is pulling the plug on Linux on DeX removing support for the feature from its smartphones running Android 10 and above. Linux on DeX was launched thanks to a partnership between Samsung and Canonical and allowed users to run a Linux desktop on their smartphones when docked with a monitor turn Samsung Galaxy devices into a PC-like experience with a single cable.
Samsung writes :
“Thank you for supporting Linux on DeX Beta. The development of Linux on DeX was all thanks to customer interest and valuable feedback. Unfortunately, we are announcing the end of our beta program, and will no longer provide support on future OS and device releases.
Linux on DeX will not be supported on Android 10 Beta. Once you update your device to Android OS 10, you will not be able to perform a version rollback to Android Pie. If you decide to update your device to Android 10 Beta, we recommend backing up data before updating.”
