Samsung has released new details about its One UI, which it claims as the company’s most simple and streamlined UI yet, built from the ground up to help users focus on what matters most.

One UI’s intuitive design fosters convenient interactions, while its clean aesthetic minimizes clutter to make viewing your screen more comfortable, says Samsung. The interface makes navigating big-screen phones simple by effectively splitting the display in half. With One UI, the top half of the screen is for viewing content, while the lower half is for interacting with your device.

Freeing up space at the top of the screen creates a more balanced, visually comfortable aesthetic, while focusing interactions on the lower half enhances usability. Key tabs, action buttons and pop-ups are easy to reach so you can access them – and finish your task – faster.

With One UI’s streamlined approach to app management, when a user launches an app, instead of filling the screen with functions that may not be useful at that particular moment, One UI keeps things simple, displaying only the functions and info the user needs to complete their task. This means that, for example, once a user enters a phone number into the dial pad, menu options unrelated to entering a phone number vanish, and new options to create a contact or start a video call appear.

Visual comfort is especially important when it’s dark, which is why Samsung built a customizable Night Mode into One UI. Easily accessible and incorporated across the entire interface, Night Mode, once enabled, adjusts the screen’s tone, brightness and contrast to offer users a more focused and comfortable viewing experience.

The interface’s spacious, orderly design changes how users view their device. Clear and intuitive visuals maximize readability, fostering an overall look that’s immersive and more comfortable to take in.

The rounded corners of the interface’s app icons and focus blocks are perfect examples of this attention to detail. Standardizing these design elements not only enhances the UI’s aesthetic appeal, it also creates pleasing consistency with the rounded corners of Galaxy devices.
