Samsung One UI is the latest Samsung’s custom skin the replaces the current UI, Samsung Experience. And it’s going to be lovable by me from the first impression. This was announced by the Korean giant yesterday during its annual developers conference (SDC 2018).
TouchWiz was Samsung’s first Android skin and was released back in 2010. The custom UI was perhaps disliked by many after some years. But Samsung got to work and replaced it with Samsung Experience in late 2016. The Experience UI is a huge improvement over TouchWiz.
From what we have seen of Samsung One UI, we are excited about it and looking forward to January 2019 when it will be rolled out with Android 9 Pie update to its devices.
Samsung introduces it this way:
One UI helps you focus on what really matters to you. With hardware and software working together in harmony, see only what you need, using and viewing your phone with an experience that feels second nature. Because it’s the small details that make a big difference.
Samsung One UI Features
One UI packs all the extra features and customisation options that Experience UI already offers. The big change is in the user interface – what we see and how we experience it.
And then, there is Night Mode for easier reading and usage in the dark. Can I hope for a system-wide implementation of this? I shall keep fingers crossed.
Samsung One UI Release Date
One UI will be arriving in January 2019 as part of Android 9 Pie update for the the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and Note9.
