Exclusive: One UI 2.0 features will include Emoji suggestions

Samsung will make major software-related announcements at its developers’ conference next month. That’s when we’ll get a good look at One UI 2.0, the next major iteration of its custom skin. The company will likely also detail its plans for Android 10 at the event.

As you can probably expect, there will be quite a few new features included in One UI 2.0. We hear that one of those features will be Emoji suggestions and predictions. It will be a fun little addition to the Samsung Keyboard. It will surface these suggestions as you’re typing along.

Emoji suggestions will be part of One UI 2.0

This won’t really be a groundbreaking feature. There are countless messaging apps that will show Emoji suggestions and predictions as you type. KakoTalk, a Korean messaging app that’s quite popular across Asia, is one such example. Line is another.

Similar functionality has long been offered by third-party keyboards as well. Offering this feature with the native keyboard will ensure that users have fewer reasons to switch away from Samsung Keyboard.

We recently got our first look at Android 10 and One UI 2.0 on a Galaxy S10. The video showed a glimpse of the new gesture system that Android 10 brings to the table. Google has made it mandatory for OEMs to bring these stock navigation gestures to their devices.

The One UI design itself doesn’t appear to have changed much but since this was likely a very early development build, chances are that things may have changed along the way. We’ll find out for sure next month when Samsung unveils One UI 2.0 at SDC 2019. We’ll be on the ground in San Francisco to bring you the latest updates from the event.

Honestly i expect that Samsung bring all the new possibilities or Android 10 to belgian S10 phones not before august 2020 when Android 11 Comes. Samsung is alltime late in Belgium and our phones have less 50% possibilities because Samsung NOT support bixby in full Dutch.

I hope Samsung’s main focus for OneUI 2.0 is improving animations and overall performance.

I use SwiftKey because the Samsung keyboard is so bad IMO. it has way many more features, this particular one came out 2-3 years ago

The Samsung keyboard is really very good, but for multilingual users SwiftKey is better. Once you have the languages installed you can start typing on whatever keyboard you are on. So If I’m in the German keyboard and start typing in English it recognises it, and vice versa. I use 3 languages, German, English and occasionally Turkish for our office people there. You have to switch it over on the Samsung kb.

Please bring back the pro mode in video please.

I agree. Post shooting editing capabilities make up for the lack of a pro mode in many areas. It’s not too difficult to edit the video to what you want it to look like generally, however, there are instances, just like with photos where no editing can replace a Pro mode.

Maybe some new sounds were good to see. While typing, i find this tick sound has to be renewed. Overall the one ui looks pretty good, i personally would prefer more animation and overall more blure effects (eg when pulling down the notification bar or the backgrounds from eg settings app)

it’s weird… with the Galaxy S5 we have this capacity… with the official Samsung keyboard. After the Galaxy S6 this function has disappeared…

Even the Infinite sliding transitions have disappeared with the galaxy S5.

Samsung Keyboard is really cool… never had the thought to switch to something else. This would be a great addition.
