Android Oreo may soon get support for custom themes without rooting

Posted August 28, 2017

Android's ecosystem is growing, especially with the advent of several devices including Android-powered smartphones, tablets, Chromebooks and smart speaker Google Home.

The first ones to get Android O will be those using Google devices, like the Nexus 5X or 6P, and the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

The Android 8.0 Oreo Pixel Launcher 2.1 offers a handful of modifications.

HTC 10: This is the previous year flagship smartphone from the company featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB onboard storage. According to Google, every new phone launching with the Android Oreo will be supported by this feature.

These, Moens said, will include a drone flight that projects a holographic version of the Android and Oreo superhero, some Android and Oreo-branded cookie giveaways, and four short films featuring the new character. These devices come with all glass design with a secondary screen on HTC U Ultra.

Even with such caveats, however, this is an exciting development for those looking to add a bit more oomph to their Android customization. With this improvement, Android Oreo users will be able to enjoy theming of the Android Framework and Android System UI, theming of any third-party application, custom fonts for 3rd-party apps, and a status bar center-clock mod WITHOUT root. HTC USA Twitter post has confirmed this information.

Android Oreo is the eighth full version of the platform and brings in many new features that users have been waiting for since long. The companies including Essential, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, General Mobile, Huawei, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, HTC, OnePlus, Samsung, Sony, and Sharp are scheduled to release updates or launch devices with Oreo.
