Samsung ended the two-day developer conference in San Francisco last night, and there were a number of important announcements made by the South Korean giant. Samsung launched the Bixby Software Development Kit (SDK) for third-party developers, and also mentioned that the digital assistant will be available in 5 more languages. The company also showed the long-awaited folding phone, but one of the highlights of the event was One UI for today's flagship and coming.
With the new One UI, Samsung focuses on scalability, where it will work on small screen phones, as well as on tablets. A user interface also focuses on one-hand usage, which makes it easier to navigate large screens. The one user interface is tailored to the skin as part of the Android 9 Pie update on existing and future phones.

In addition to detailing the One UI features, Samsung also said it will soon start Android 9 Pie beta later this month. The update comes to Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 + and Galaxy Note 9 users in the United States, Germany and Korea. The update will bring the latest user interface along with the entire system.
The official release of Android 9 Pie with a user interface for the compatible Galaxy smartphones will start from January 2019. Traditionally, Samsung has mostly rolled out software upgrades after revealing a new Galaxy S Series smartphone, and January can only be the time when we wanted to see the new flagship phone on CES 2019. Also, according to a report on Tom Guide the new One UI does not come to Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 + and Galaxy Note 9.
