As most of you know, the latest iteration of your beloved Android OS has released and companies like Google and Essential have already released the latest Android version, that is Android Pie 9.0, on to their devices. We are expecting the same from Samsung, however, Samsung, as you may know, is not known for timely OS update releases. We expect that Samsung will release a beta on their latest flagships soon to test out Android Pie. While we wait for that to happen, in the meantime you can try out Samsung Night Theme on S8, S9 and Note 9.
The Samsung night theme has been extracted from Samsung Pie UI by a well-known theme enthusiast envy who is a contributor on xdadevelopers. Thanks to his work you can experience the Samsung Night theme before the official launch of Experience 10 based on Android Pie on Samsung phones. Now, of course, this goes without saying that a mere theme won’t compensate for the functionality that the official Samsung Experience 10 would offer but it does a good enough job with the visual elements.
