We were the first among websites to share the leaked stock wallpapers from the Galaxy S8 that was unveiled a couple of days ago. On the lay of its official launch, we also shared the official stock wallpapers from the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is set to be released globally on April 29 onwards and pre-order registrations have begun too. Meanwhile, if you want to try the stock home launcher apps from the Galaxy S8, you can do so right now because the launcher app APK file is out now.

To install the Samsung Galaxy S8 Launcher APK, you must have a Samsung Galaxy device. Since I tried it on my rooted Galaxy S7 Edge running stock Android 7.0 Nougat, I am not very sure if it will work on Samsung phones with Marshmallow or not.

The provided APK can be installed on rooted or non-rooted device alike just like a normal app. Below are some screenshots showing what’s new in the home launcher that comes with Galaxy S8’s new Infinity user interface.
