Samsung today held its event dedicated to developers. In addition to its first folding smartphone, other interesting news was revealed. One is the new One UI, which will arrive to replace the Samsung Experience.
For years Samsung's interface has been one of the most hated on the market. TouchWiz had too much customization, which caused performance issues on their smartphones. Criticism was heard and so Samsung Experience was born.

In fact, Experience arrived lighter and more intuitive than its predecessor. This new era of Samsung's interface has given back the due processing power to its smartphones and thus appeased the fury of some fans.
Although things are more clamoring in this chapter, the South Korean giant saw that it was time for something new. It's time to look back to the future of mobile technology and introduce a new Android interface / customization.
Samsung Experience falls to make way for One UI
It was at today's conference that South Korea introduced the world to One UI. This will be the new interface for South Korean smartphones going forward. So soon we will say goodbye to the Samsung Experience.
One UI was developed in partnership with Google and the Android developer community. As a result, we have a simpler interface and greater ease of use with one hand.
To do this, One UI will focus on the content most relevant to you at the bottom of the screen. Therefore we have a layout smaller to maximize smartphone use with one hand. This means that both menus and pop ups will appear at the bottom of the screen.
In contrast, the top of One UI will be entitled to larger headers. Of course this type of approach will result in more wasted / unused space.
Also the lock screen of your Galaxy will change. From now on, this screen will be entitled to new fonts, new icons and new navigation buttons. In addition, Dark Mode will be a more frequent presence.
The Samsung Experience replacement will also be compatible with your folding smartphone. This new interface will be able to mold perfectly to each of the positions in which we place this irreverent device.
Finally, it should be noted that One UI will start reaching users in January 2019. This will be part of the Android Pie update for South Korean smartphones. Still, One UI will reach the beta testers month later, just like the new version of the OS.
