The gag-inducing TouchWiz and Samsung Experience have been gone for a while now. Samsung’s new and refreshing approach to its smartphones’ UI, dubbed the “One UI“, was a welcome change. Introducing streamlined ways of interaction with one’s smartphone and emphasizing ease of use with one hand, the One UI presented itself as a compelling selling point of Samsung’s latest smartphones.
Introduced in last year’s Galaxy S9 and Note 9 series of Samsung smartphones, One UI made it to the older generation of the company’s flagship devices as well. While the original One UI was a total overhaul to its earlier UI, the forthcoming One UI 2.0 (based on Android 10) will only come with smaller, quality-of-life changes, while embracing the principles of the latest Android Q (10).
The Samsung Android 10 One UI 2.0 update is already live in Germany, Panama, and South Korea for the Galaxy S10 series. However, from the looks of it, Samsung smartphone owners in other countries will have to wait a little longer until 2020 for the update. Samsung India has posted the Android 10 Update Roadmap on the “Samsung Members” platform. Let’s have a look.

What’s new in One UI 2.0?
Like I said before, there won’t be any radical changes from the earlier versions to One UI 2.0. Mostly, there’ll be subtle upgrades to accessibility and usability, while simultaneously embracing the features of Android 10. Here are some of the most significant changes coming to One UI 2:
- More Quick Settings items visible on the Notification panel, with the date and time size, minimized and shifted to the left.
- When using other apps, the incoming call and volume toggle UI’s screen size has been further shortened.
- Vivid moving icons with more vibrant hues
- Systemwide “Dark Mode”
- The camera app now categorizes multiple camera modes into a folder called “More”
- New and redesigned “Device Care” option
