One UI

Designed for everyday simplicity

One UI is easy to use so you can quickly navigate through any task and reduce the overload. Designed to help you focus on what really matters, the new design is unique yet accessible. The One UI experience is consistent and inclusive for everyone.

Simulated interfaces of smartphone and Galaxy Watch apps, app icons, and alerts are tiled alongside one another in a diagonal grid pattern, showcasing the various updates in One UI 2. Sample interfaces include the Notes, Camera, Messages Gallery, home screen, and Routines apps.

Focus on what matters

One UI visual language is simplified and designed for clarity.

The Notes application simulation displays example memos in the form of handwritten notes, a pinned photo, and a recipe.

Get to what you need faster

The Galaxy experience feels natural and easy with simple interactions that make sense.
Frequently used apps and features are always at your fingertips on every Galaxy device. No matter your Galaxy device’s screen size, you'll be connected and focused.

Three simulated images each show the unique interface of a Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, and a Galaxy Watch. Messages on the smartphone are within comfortable reach of the user’s thumb when held with one hand. The Galaxy Fold features a split keyboard for easy two-handed typing. And the circular menu of app icons on the Galaxy Watch is easy to navigate.

Stay informed, not distracted

The new One UI 2 features a streamlined design that keeps you up to date without getting in the way of what you're doing.
Notifications take up less space, so you can focus on what matters even more.

Simple symbols indicate 'expand', 'answer' and 'reject' the incoming call. The view of the game is unobscured by the notification.

Dark Mode is even smarter

Help your eyes at night by softening the display with an enhanced Dark Mode. Or turn it on for style with battery saving benefits. The choice is yours. Darkened menus and features are integrated across One UI 2 so your screen stays muted and your eyes comfortable.
