Updated: Samsung released official One UI firmware update based on Android 9.0 Pie for several smartphones including Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 9, Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, Note 8; via stable or beta channel. It features a native Night Mode option under Settings app and Developer Options as well. Though Night mode is a really nice feature, the themes at Galaxy app store have also been updated in order in support for One UI. The new themes can also change color for the notifications in Notification panel.
Samsung devices are popular not only for the hardware specifications but also for the superior TouchWiz home. Following Nougat update, the ROM has been renamed to Samsung Experience. Samsung has its very own SDK (Software Development Toolkit) available for developers to create Aapps, themes, icons, etc. for TouchWiz Home. The SE 9.0 firmware also comes with a theme engine. This leads to a plethora of themes available for the Samsung Galaxy devices. So here we have a collection of the best free Samsung Themes available in the market.
Even though you can always install the Nova Launcher or any launcher to customize your Android phone, these ready-made themes from Samsung will get you get started. Moreover, a combination of Samsung Themes and Nova Launcher is always best. It enables you full customization for settings, quick settings, notification panel, lock screen, Always on Display, and much more.
Unfortunately, we cannot share the direct links to the themes as it is forbidden by the manufacturer. The same goes for screenshots. You will need to open Settings app > launch Wallpapers and Themes sections > swipe over to the themes tab and search for the following Samsung themes. Once applied, you can always change the icons, wallpapers, widgets, etc. if you don’t like it.
Pixelize or PixelizeD Samsung Theme
If you could get a clue from the name, then the suggested theme will get you the latest Google Pixel skin. It is the same as the latest Google user interface. The main difference between Pixelize and PixelizeD is that the former is white and the later has a dark tone to it.
The two themes come from the same author named ‘Cameron Bunch’. These themes set the latest UX trending in the Android community. Be assured, you can always customize the skin to get the full Pixel like experience on your phone; meaning using launchers, widgets, icon packs, wallpapers, and more.
Oreo and Oreo Dark Samsung Theme
The Oreo theme we are talking about is not the same as the Pixelize theme we stated earlier. These Oreo and Oreo_Black themes developed by renowned Themer ‘MINU’, brings you the Material Design without the colorful icons and design. Instead of the colorful icons, and badges, it has a plain grayish tone to it; which makes the theme stand out from the crowd. The monochromatic icons and badges also gives an advantage to the Oreo_Black theme to make it less radiant.
However, if you like the colorful icons and design, then you may like this another Android Oreo theme developed by ‘Filipe Leite’.
If you are not a big fan of the AOSP Oreo UX or the Material Design, then here are some unique themes that may interest you.
High Contrast Theme II
If you like dark themes, then this High Contrast theme developed by
theme.seller is what you need. As the name suggests, the background is dark and the text is white. Even the icons are pretty neat but not really contrast. Another alternative to this theme is the High Contrast 1.
Lemon theme by ‘aire design’ is a rather new but beautiful theme. It has a dual tone to it. The color is lemon the name suggests. The best part of Lemon is that it is extremely lightweight. It comes in a package of just 2.2 MB in size on the Samsung Theme store. The developer is known for making some unique themes such as the Sea Cliff Bridge, Lonely, Dreamy, etc.
Here is another theme that might interest you. If you have seen the movie Tron, then you get the idea about this one. Black Onix has lightning borders throughout the theme. This includes the icons, badges, dialer, contacts, quick settings, and even the message box.
The White theme by ‘MINU’ is the complete opposite to the High Contrast theme we listed earlier. The background and wallpaper are pearly white, while the text, icons, badges, etc. has a black accent to it. So if you are into black and white theme, then this is the perfect one for you.
You may also like the Dark Mint theme by the same author which is very similar to the white theme and have some unique icons design.
An alternative to this is the White Cat theme by ‘Funi’. It has a little bit of Pink accent to it with a decent color combination for icons and badges.
