Samsung is betting everything on One UI, its own new interface, based on Android 9.0 Pie. However, the bad memories of Touchwiz are still fresh in the minds of many.
The Korean giant has already given some samples of what will be the experience in One UI. Today, through the gizchina website, we can see some more of these innovations.

Samsung aims to simplify device usage through a clean, space-efficient interface that improves accessibility to everything.
Notification panel allows a more organic view
When we open notifications, the quick setting bar extends to the bottom of the screen. This allows for better one-handed interaction. An ergonomic problem present on many smartphones with large screens.
A simplified viewing area
Second, we have a change in the way we view and interact with content. The user now interacts by tapping the elements at the bottom of the screen. The upper part shows the content of the applications.
One Ui presents this content to us through "focus blocks" that show less information but keep the user more focused, according to Samsung. These blocks maintain a round and minimalist appearance, matching all the aesthetics of the interface.
Relevant elements and the "dark mode"
Thirdly, One UI also reduces the number of interactive elements by removing anything that is irrelevant to the action in question.
An example of this is when a user enters a number in the mobile app, only the options to create contact or initiate call appear.
This interface would not be complete without also including a dark mode or night mode. However, One UI is not limited to contrasting from white to black. The overall tone, brightness and appearance are changed for better visual comfort.
In conclusion, all these new implementations do seem beneficial indeed. Samsung wants One UI not to be seen as another skin but a completely different experience from other brands, combined with Android in its entirety and complementing the operating system.
