Download the official Samsung TouchWiz One UI Pie launcher APK on all other Samsung phones. You can download and install it now on your Galaxy device. Samsung has been teasing the new One UI for a while now. Previously named as Samsung Experience 10, One UI aims to make it easier to use big display smartphones. Since smartphones are getting bigger and bigger, it is getting more difficult to use them one-handed. Many settings lay at the top of the display which forces users to do acrobatics to reach them.
One UI changes all of this thanks to the new way that everything is displayed on the screen. Most of the options are shifted down compared to the traditional layout. For example, in the notification panel, the top part of the screen shows the date and the time. The toggles appear from the middle of the screen to the bottom. The brightness slider is at the bottom so it is very easy to reach. The same thing applies to system applications. If you go to Settings and slide down, the panel will shift down so you can reach the top options.
The new Pie update will be released for the Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+, Note 9 and Note 8 in the near future. However, you can make your phone look like it has One UI by installing the official Samsung Pie launcher. Since the first Pie firmware got leaked a few days ago, the launcher APK file has been extracted and it can be installed on other phones.
