How to enable the Samsung One font on the Galaxy S10

Here’s a fun fact: One UI comes bundled with Samsung One, the custom typeface Samsung both designed and uses on its website, retail packaging and on software and hardware spread across several different product lines, including its TVs. And now customers with a Galaxy smartphone that comes running with Android Pie, and therefore One UI 1.1, out of the box, can use it.

The typeface doesn’t come enabled by default, however. That means those with a supported device, like the Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10+, will need to turn it on by hand. It couldn’t be easier to do though and is fully reversible — so if you aren’t a fan of the Samsung One font or find it difficult to read, you can switch back in no more than a few taps.

How to enable the Samsung One font on the Galaxy S10

Step 1: Head into Settings.

Step 2: Select Display.

Step 3: Tap Font size and style.

Step 4: Press Font style.Step 5: Select Samsung One.

Once you’ve done that, your Galaxy S10 will then switch to the Samsung One typeface. To revert, repeat Step 1 through Step 4, then select Default. If you ran through the steps only to find that Samsung One is missing, it’s because your device didn’t come running Android 9.0 Pie. Devices that get Android Pie as an update from Android Oreo won’t have the font, even if they get One UI 1.1 instead of One UI 1.0 along with the Pie update.

  • Guys/gals, I have an issue with fonts on my Note 8. BEFORE the Pie update, I purchased a Font from the Galaxy Store but now on Pie... I can't use it; the receipt is visible on the Galaxy Store though there isn't a way to download & install it.

    I also searched the purchased Font name, it seems I can buy it again? Are all out pre-Pie digital Theme purchases incompatible with Pie??

    • It's possible. I had that a long time ago with a paid theme that was on Nougat but wouldn't install on Oreo. I'd contact Samsung about it though through the help app

    • No, not on Note9 either, but download Samsung Sans from the Galaxy Store, it's free and I can't see any difference from Samsung One. I compared it to the One font on an S10 plus and it looks the same to my eyes.

      • Samsung One is ever so slightly thinner, and letters like l have a curved ending instead of being a fully straight line. But yeah, Samsung Sans is pretty close.

  • It looks exactly like Samsung Sans that I have on my Note9. Just compared it to my nieces S10 plus. We can't see any difference, or it's extremely close to it. I wonder if Samsung One is Samsung Sans with a new name??

  • I got the Android 9 update with One UI 1.1 for the Tab S4 yesterday and there isn't a Samsung One font, so it isn't correct that every device with One UI 1.1 has it.

  • "even if they get One UI 1.1 instead of One UI 1.0 along with the Pie update."

    What phones are updated from Oreo to Pie and have ONE UI 1.1 ?

  • "Once you’ve done that, your Galaxy S10"

    Why S10 ? Earlier you write about this phones

    "like the Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10+"

  • Have installed it on my Note8.
    First you need to remove your simcard (Airplane mode doesn't work), then use a VPN with southakorea server (ExpressVPN) also clear data and cache of Galaxy Store.
    When you enter Galaxy Store with Korean language, search Samsung One, install and apply it.
    This font is great indeed
