• One UI aims to enhance usability and emotional connection through the sense of touch. Rich tactile sensations make notifications more enjoyable and less stressful.
  • One UI also considers the characteristics of the human body when providing haptic feedback. These characteristics include the vibration detection threshold, discrimination threshold for changes in intensity, recognition of different frequency ranges, and the changes in the detection threshold depending on the length of the vibration.

Responsive interaction

  • Haptics make touch interactions more intuitive and pleasant by providing tactile feedback.
  • Crisp and refined haptic feedback helps users avoid overstimulation and creates a gentle clicking sensation when touching the screen.
  • Keyboard haptics provides different feedback for special keys such as Delete, Spacebar, and Function keys which helps users easily distinguish them.

Rich and nuanced expression

  • One UI haptics adopt familiar metaphors and communicate using elaborate vibrations that deliver more realistic sensations than simple buzzing vibrations.
  • Our haptic designs reduce vibration-induced stress and provide users with a smarter and more pleasant experience.
  • For example, when you set your device to Vibrate, you'll feel the sensation of a heavy ball falling and bouncing off the ground. When the fingerprint sensors fails to recognize your fingerprint, you'll feel two quick vibrations to let you know you need to scan it again.

Motion and analog expression

  • One UI haptics make touch screen experiences more like real life experiences.
  • Haptics in the One UI camera make it feel like a traditional analog camera. Users get haptic feedback when zooming in and out, tapping the shutter button, and changing modes.
  • One UI haptics are designed to feel like one united component that combines visual and tactile sensations. When an interaction is accompanied by visual movements, the movement's timing and nuance match perfectly with the vibration.
  • For example, switches used for turning settings on and off include haptics that incorporate the movement of the switch. The direction and duration of the vibrations make it feel like a real physical switch.
