The One UI experience will be rolling out to other Samsung devices as well as part of the Android 9 Pie update, this includes the Note 8, Galaxy S8, Note FE and Galaxy A8, among others.

In addition to One UI, the Android Pie update brings a few other goodies as well like Adaptive Battery which is a feature that learns your usage patterns and adapts the device’s power usage accordingly. One UI comes with the option to set a systems-wide night mode where the background and most design elemetns of the interface is presented in a dark colour to sav battery further .
