Samsung's software has provided extensive themes for many years, but has never had a dark system-level mode like many competitors. The Android 9 Pie update, bringing the new "One UI" interface, introduces a brand new "Night Mode" that achieves the same goal: Black out as much of the interface as possible, which is easy on your eyes at night, but also friendly to the battery. How to enable it.
