5 Questions and answers about the new Samsung One UI interface

Samsung strikes back. This year not only with a new Galaxy, but also with Android 9 Pie with a smart jacket developed by Samsung called 'One UI'. Here's what you need to know about One UI.

1. What is OneUI?

One UI is the latest interface from Samsung and part of the Android Pie update that is currently being rolled out by this manufacturer. One UI is the successor of The Samsung Experience interface, which in turn was the successor of the earlier Samsung TouchWiz. One UI is now standard on all new Samsung devices that you can purchase through providers such as KPN.

2. What makes One UI so special?

The new Android 9 Pie contains many small and large improvements compared to the previous version. As the smartphone has become the most important device we use, Samsung has gone one step further. Based on feedback and reactions from users, numerous adjustments have been made that ensure that you can better focus on the things you need to do. On the other hand, certain things in One UI are in a more logical place or you have to perform fewer actions to do something.

3. So One UI adds more bells and whistles?

No, on the contrary. One UI provides more overview and peace of mind; for example, by reclassifying relevant information. The interface has been redesigned in many places and features such as Night Mode ensure that your eyes don't get tired as quickly. And to the Always On Display, which offers you the possibility to check notifications without unlocking your device, new clock styles have been added and you now have the possibility to view, for example, your daily schedule.

These and other subtle improvements help reduce the risk of distraction, allowing you to focus more on things that really matter. One UI therefore mainly contributes to your productivity.

4. What other changes does One UI offer?

One UI includes a whole host of other improvements that are barely or hardly visible. One UI, for example, ensures that Android Pie can make optimal use of longer screens and also contains a handy function with which you can, for example, lock the screen rotation. You can see how long it takes for your battery to charge and it is possible to sort the call history by incoming and outgoing calls.

Also welcome is the new Scene Optimizer that improves the camera's color settings. And if you still want to improve a photo, you don't have to start a separate photo editor because adjustments can be made directly from the Gallery. And that also saves time.

5. Which devices will have access to One UI?

One UI can not only be found on the latest Samsung, such as, for example, the Galaxy S10, which will most likely be presented in Q1 of 2019. Since One UI is implemented in the Android 9 Pie update from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will also get this new smart interface when this update is installed on them.
