Samsung today announced One UI, a brand new user interface that it intends to roll out to devices such as phones and tablets. It relies on new design language based on the idea of blocks floating over a surface to give it a more modern feel. In the settings menus, Samsung will ensure that similar or related functions are put together in the UI. Moreover, it will put the most-used settings closer to the top of the screen. Samsung hopes to make the UI more natural. It has moved many of the touch controls to the bottom of the screen so they are easier to reach. Samsung says another goal of One UI is to make the user experience more visibly comfortable. The company is increasing font size in some menus and adding a more thorough dash of color to better indicate the status of some controls. Users will be able to choose from a handful of basic color schemes for their phone. Samsung says it is launching a One UI beta testing program in the U.S., Germany, and Korea later this month. The beta will allow people to test the user experience before its official release. One UI will be available to the Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note9 early next year.
