The company developed One UI 4.0 from the ground up to be a comfortable and intuitive platform that enables you to focus on what matters. It also makes it easier for users to communicate and express themselves more effectively.

Samsung’s video provides great insight into the thinking that went into creating the next major iteration of its custom Android skin. As we’ve already highlighted, One UI 4.0 brings some meaningful improvements to compatible devices. So it’s great to understand how exactly Samsung approached the development.
