Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the latest flagship phone from the largest Korean electronic manufacturer. It comes with some exclusive apps, features, and the user interface including Bixby, AOD, new and updated stock apps like Music, Camera, and much more. The interface is termed as Infinity Display due to its almost seamless edges. Now, all these exclusive features can be ported onto other Samsung devices like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge via a ROM port. The Android ROM listed below brings a framework based on Samsung S8 user interface.
The Galaxy S8+ ROM port listed below is a stock based custom ROM based on stock Samsung Experience firmware (formerly TouchWiz) in a package on 1.50 GB in size. It has been tested on S7 (Edge) G935/G930 devices and the firmware is based on G935FXXU1DQCE Baseband version. The most important thing about this ROM is that it comes with most of the Galaxy s8 apps, mods and features. It also has OTA Updater with additional features like Debloat, Deodex, and De-Knox. The ROM comes pre-rooted with Magisk and the system is optimized for performance and stability.
