Meanwhile, here's an overview of One UI

Samsung claims its One UI is designed for "more natural and comfortable" intuitive UX as against Samsung Experience's UI that feels like a cluttered design.

The new UI aims to offer one-handed usage by utilizing the upper part of the display for viewing, while assigning the lower part for touch interaction - a design that makes sense on taller phones.
