About OneUI Core :

One UI is a custom Android skin installed on Samsung Galaxy smartphones. It comes in two variants – One UI Standard and One UI Core. For starters, One UI Core is not a beta version of One UI. This is a simple and stable version of the main One UI for cheap and mid-range Samsung Galaxy phones. This means it has fewer features than One UI, which mostly works on other Galaxy phones.

Samsung advises keeping your device up to date and regularly checking for software updates. Users can check for the latest software update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install or turning auto-updates or notifications on in the settings of your device.

You can turn on notifications for updates in the Settings or directly go to Settings>Software Update for OneUI update. Overall it will give a more secure, easier, and fun experience.
