The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the upcoming flagship phone from the Korean major. The hype has to lead to many leaks in the past including the live images to the stock apps and features like Music APK from the Galaxy S8 Plus device. All the stock apps from the S8 devices have already been ported to many other Samsung devices. Even though the actual footages of S8 are now available, the official launch is going to be on March 29, 2017. Meanwhile, from all these leaks, developers have already ported the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus theme and icons from the stunning Dream UX.

The following port will install the Dream UX theme and icons on your Galaxy device with ease. Direct APK files are available for the S8 Dream UX and the S8 colors. This means you can install them without root. It will give your device the complete feel of Samsung’s next UI.
Even though the direct APK files are available, there is also a root method available for the same which does not require you to disable the Theme store packages. The Dream UX port works best on the Nougat ROM and has been tested on Galaxy S7 (Edge), and Galaxy S6 (Edge).
Update: New app icons pack are available. It is optional to install. But looks better.
