The Korean tech giant, Samsung is the world’s leader in creating various tech gadgets, whether it’s a smart refrigerator, smart TV or smartphone. Here, talking specifically about the smartphones, Samsung has a long list of smartphone range, whether it’s the entry-level J-series, mid-ranger A-series or the flagship grade S-series, Samsung is literally ruling above all. Samsung smartphones have always been praised for good build, quality, and software. Samsung always provides a great hardware upgradation in the new smartphone, but without much change in the user interface. Finally, Samsung has revealed a big upgrade in the user interface, by introducing the all-new Samsung One UI at the fifth annual Developer Conference in San Francisco, California. Also, we get to know about the list of devices supporting Samsung One UI.
Samsung always put a great effort into creating great hardware upgrades in the flagship devices, but as we all know, the UI game of Samsung is not that tight. Currently, all the Samsung devices are running the TouchWiz UI which upgraded with the Android Nougat version, and we didn’t see any major differences in the Android Oreo based TouchWiz. But, finally, Samsung revealed the UI iteration which will be based on the latest version of Android, that is, Android Pie.
Talking more about the new Samsung One UI, according to the company, the new UI update doesn’t focus on the designs and visual, however, we have witnessed a new and fresher look, but the major focus of the One UI is on the interaction of the user. The company worked for the easy interaction with the UI and specially designed it for the new generation of smartphones which comes with taller displays, where some users find it had to use the device with a single hand, the pop-ups, notifications and the dialogue box comes can be reached and touched easily. You can check out one such change in the design, in the image below, where the additional dialogue box comes near the bottom of the device, making it easier to access.
Excited about the new Samsung One UI already? Yes, we all are! Samsung at the Developer Conference didn’t mention officially about the devices which will be supporting the One UI, but the information that One UI is based on Android Pie is enough to find out the device which will get the One UI update soon. Currently, the latest devices in the Samsung Galaxy S flagship series, that is, Samsung Galaxy S9 series are able to support the Android Pie based Samsung One UI in beta version at the end of this month, where the stable update will roll out in January next month only. Also, the recently, launched Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be getting the latest One UI too.
The previous flagships in the Galaxy S series and Note series, that is, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will be getting the Samsung One UI for sure, as Samsung had already talked about the Android Pie update for the mentioned devices. Also, the tipster Ice Universe mentioned in a tweeted about the One UI update for these devices, where the beta version for the One UI in these devices will start in January.
