The Android SDK contains
fastboot for flashing images. But Samsung devices are usually not flashable via fastboot.
Instead you need a software named
Odin or for Linux an "Odin clone" named
Heimdall exists that can AFAIR also flash firmware images on Samsung devices.
For flashing an "Android generic system image" the current firmware of a device has to be compliant to Googles "Project Treble". There are apps in the Google Play Store that claim to be able to check if a device is "Project Treble" compatible. But I don't have any experience how accurate those apps are.
