Samsung reveals One UI for larger screen smartphones

Alongside its foldable smartphone concept, Samsung has revealed its upcoming brand new look, called One UI.

The new user interface, which was presented at Samsung’s Developer Conference, is all about simplicity and comfort, the company explained.

At present, One UI runs on top of Android 9.0 Pie.

“Find and focus on the content you want easily. The decluttered screen shows relevant information with each tap, so you only get the essentials, one at a time,” said the company on its website.

The design features new icons and neater, rounded displays. It’s also said to be easier to use on bigger screens, taking ergonomics into consideration.

The more “natural” user experience of One UI is currently available for testing in Samsung’s One UI Beta Programme, which you can sign up for through Galaxy Apps or Google Play.

The Beta Programme is only open to those in US and parts of Europe and Asia.

  • It seems to me that South African tablets and digital publishing market is very unique among other geographical locations. I work for PressPad a digital publishing software company, we do apps for magazine publishers. From a year now we work very closely with some SA agencies via our partnership program http://blog.presspadapp.com/case-study-affiliate-works-presspad-partnership-program/ and build digital magazine apps for them. When I am analysing their achievemnts via AppAnnie it always remains that compering to number of users and market saturation, South African magazine apps sell very well… maybe even better than on US market. The magazine published through PressPad touch such topics as hunting, bow hunting etc. and I am wondering does it corelate with incredible well sales results in South Africa? Is there anyone who understand this?
