Update October 27, 2021 at 4:20 pm ET: This article has been updated to clarify the limited scope of One UI 4 on Windows 11.

Galaxy Book owners, get ready for a fresh spin on Windows 11. While it's not a drastic redesign that'll shake the Windows 11 experience's very foundations, Samsung is injecting a little One UI 4 flavor into the apps of its laptops operating on the latest OS from Microsoft. The company posted a video showcasing what you can expect from the tweaks:

The goal is to bridge the gap between mobile and dedicated PC experiences so the overall vibe is more cohesive. This news comes at a time when Samsung's been busy announcing the latest iterations of its Galaxy Books, in the event you're keen on doing some Galaxy-themed holiday shopping.

For those of you who see the One UI 4 app tweaks as a means of inching toward a Windows 11 that suits your preferences, don't think you need to rush out and buy a Galaxy Book to make Microsoft's latest OS and associated apps look a little different. There are plenty of products out there that'll let you polish up W11 until you're satisfied with its appearance. Take, for example, Start11, which will let you adjust the Windows 11 Start menu until you no longer hate it.

If you like mobile aesthetics and wish Windows 11 was a little closer to that, enjoy the One UI 4 modifications. So long as you're rocking a Samsung Galaxy laptop.
