Samsung has used its Developer Conference 2018 to introduce its next generation custom Android 9 Pie-based user interface design. Dubbed One UI, the new interface has been designed to simplify the user experience by reducing clutter. ​

Among the latest announcements Samsung made at its annual developer conference was the official unveiling of its next mobile user interface design. Based on Android 9 Pie, the new One UI replaces the current UI known as the Samsung Experience. Samsung's first generation interface was probably the best known, however, the awfully named TouchWiz.

The key theme underlying One UI is that it has been “Made to Focus.” By this, Samsung says that it has concentrated on redesigning the interface to reduce clutter and distractions. This is so that users can better focus on their content and more quickly and easily navigate their device.

Samsung, however, didn’t reveal when it will launch its new UI. It is about to launch an open Beta for Android 9 Pie for its latest crop of smartphones in select countries, with a planned early 2019 appearance for the final release. So it could arrive as soon as then, although it is possible Samsung could hold over the new UI until the launch of the Galaxy S10.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN/Electronista, and now NotebookCheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to site and its readership.
