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.

  6. I don’t know… I WANT to know!!
    My device is a Galaxy S7 and I would like so much to take this home screen at my phone but…. it doesn’t install. It simply fails at the finish of installation process.

  7. Thanks but doesnt work
    When I try to install, on the finish, it shows the message :
    The app was not installed. Already a package with that same name exists

  8. You can uninstall it after the upgrade if you want. Just go to settings choose the app and tap the three dots at the top right.

  9. When i try to install it on my S7 Edge 7.0 it says it’s an actuallization of a preexisting app, is it dangerous? I mean, i dont wanna mess the origial launcher.
