How to use LibreSubstratum app to theme Android phoneAndroid is widely preferred by consumers from around the world, primarily for the level of customization it offers. In that very aspect, theming plays a very crucial role. We earlier covered how it was possible to theme your Android device using Substratum.

While the tool works really well, it has lately been reported to have analytics built into their app which allows the app to share user-specific data with the developers. Thankfully, there is an alternative to that – LibreSubstratum.

While we’ve already covered what LibreSubstratum is, and how it differs from the original Substratum app, let us take a look at how to actually go about installing and using LibreSubstratum on your device.

Note: The following method only works on Android Nougat (7.x.x) ROMs that have full OMS (Overlay Manager Service) Support. Stock ROMs are currently not supported.

Install & Use LibreSubstratum On Your Android Smartphone:

  • To begin with, head-over the Google Play Store and install "LibreSubstratum" on your phone. This is a free app, so you don't need to panic.
  • Next, Install "Substratum Theme Engine Root" from play store (a free app). This is to enable LibreSubstratum to function properly. Hence, LibreSubstratum is just an alternative to Substratum app.
  • Now, navigate to your Phone Settings => Developer options => Scroll down to the "Debugging" section and enable the toggle next to “Force authorize every theme app”.


  • Now, install any Substratum theme of your choice from the Play Store. For this tutorial, we will be installing the Greyce theme (free). Alternatively, you can try out these themes as well.
  • After you've installed the theme installed on your phone, open the LibreSubstratum app. Here, tap on the theme that you just installed. It will now present you with a list of overlays.

  • Select the overlays that you wish to apply by checking the box next to them. Once you’re done with that, tap on the “+” icon in the bottom-right corner and select “compile, install and activate”.

  • All done and thus you've successfully themed your Android device using LibreSubstratum. The overlays will now be compiled and then installed on your device. Once done, simply reboot your device to see the changes. As you can see in the screenshots down below, I chose the pink accent overlay for my SystemUI.

Use LibreSubstratum To Theme Your Android Phone:

While the Substratum app in itself is technically, open-source, it has lately been reported of using specific trackers. However, the original app does not allow it's user to install any themes through a 3rd-party sources such as APKs or alternative app stores. Thus, LibreSubstratum is something benefiting and it is simple, fast, contains no bloatware, and has no anti-competitiveness.

[Rumour]: Razer Phone 2 To Arrive At IFA 2018 Along With Project Linda

Razer Phone 2 coming IFA 2018 says FrAndroid

Razer launched it's first smartphone last year, it made good sales because of how perfect it is for gamers - We can't just say that it's only specialized in having because the phone came to market just last year. However, we consider it a handsome device which certainly doesn’t tarnish the good Razer name. Though it did suffer from some problems, like poor optimization resulting in battery and camera disappointments. Hence, that's simply because it was their first phone.

The report arrives via FrAndroid “a well-informed internal source,” although further details about what the device would offer weren’t commented on. IFA is one of the world’s biggest technology shows and in 2018 it will take place between August 31 and September 5, no doubt seeing many major announcements across the week. Razer typically has quite a large space booked at show, so it would be the perfect place to unveil a new handset.

It would be slightly early in the 12-month release cycle, though, as the last handset was announced at the beginning of November.

[Rumour]: Razer Phone 2 To Arrive At IFA 2018 Along With Project Linda
Meanwhile, FrAndroid says the handset may also arrive alongside Project Linda. This is a Razer venture that turns its smartphone into the brains of a laptop computer. We’ve actually been hands-on with an early version this tech at CES, but Razer wasn’t talking price or release date details at the time.

While we’re still waiting to hear more on this, but one last interesting detail FrAndroid mentioned was that the Razer supposedly developed that CES demo in just one month. If that’s all it took to create the exciting, potentially groundbreaking system we tried, who knows what the Razer team can do between now and September.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Specs & Images Leaked, Renders Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Coupled With Dual Camera And More

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Spec & Images Leaked: Xiaomi Mi Max 3 To Run On Miui 9 And Feature a 6.99-Inch FHD + Full Screen (2160 x 1080) Display

Despite the sales Xiaomi made last year, the company has not reveal its total shipments for 2017 but at least we know the tech company did well in terms of its total revenue. Last year, Xiaomi released a number of new models and one of those was the Mi Max 2 phablet. The Mi Max 2 is about to get a successor in the Mi Max 3 and the photo of the device has appeared in a new leak.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Specs & Images Leaked, Renders Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Coupled With Dual Camera And More

The leaked photo almost looked exactly like that of Max 2 when viewed from the rear. The major difference between the both devices is that the Mi Max 3 packs a dual rear camera setup which is located at the top left corner. The device also packs a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, perhaps due to the full-screen design expected to reign up front. One wonders how a rear fingerprint sensor can be easily accessed in a phablet-sized device.

Apart from the design, the leak also shed some light on the expected specs of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3. Top of the list is the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 premium midrange chipset. The Middle Max 3 had been rumored earlier to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 flagship, however that isn’t the case.

The Mi Max 2 came with a Snapdragon 625 chipset. An upgrade to a Snapdragon 660 is adequate to still make it an affordable mid-ranger. Thus, the leak also reveals that the Mi Max 3 is expected to run on MIUI 9 out of the box. In addition to that, the device will come with a price-tag of 1,000 Yuan and we can’t help going ballistic over this one. However, It is very much unlikely that the Mi Max 3 should come with a price hovering around 1,500 Yuan ($233)/ 1,600 Yuan ($249).

According to the information from Sina, the device will feature a 6.99-inch FHD + full screen (2160 x 1080) display, equiped with 3GB /4GB of RAM + 64GB / 128GB of storage, which probably can be expected. The Middle Max 3 comes with a 5 Mega pixels for front camera, while the rear camera is a dual camera with 12 mega pixel. In addition to that, the battery capacity will be 5500mAh non-removable battery along with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. The phone will probably also be equipped with two SIM card slots — Hence, there is also news that the new phone will cancel the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The device is expected to feature thinner bezels just like the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. A set of renders were also released to give an idea of how the Mi Max 3 would look up front. Furthermore there's no word yet regarding to the launch date. Hence, we can’t say if Xiaomi will be adopting such design for the Max 3.

Nokia latest smartphone
Seems like HMD Global are working on a Lumia 1020-like Nokia-branded Android smartphone. Some of us probably remember that in 2013 after acquiring the Nokia’s Devices and Services division, Microsoft unveiled the flagship Lumia 1020 smartphone. At that time, Lumia 1020, the Nokia flagship smartphone, was arguably the best camera phone and the impressive performance of 41-megapixel camera lens stunned everyone.

Yesterday, a new rumour has appeared on Baidu claiming that the Finnish company (HMD Global) is working to bring yet another innovative-quality device to the market. The Nokia 2018 flagship Android smartphone will be unveiled later this year and it may feature a Penta-lens camera setup, similar to the camera technology of the Lumia 1020.

According to Nokialatest, the camera setup on the rumoured Nokia appears to be interesting. The source familiar with Foxconn’s R&D business claims that the phone’s circular camera will feature five lenses. The circular camera will have seven holes, five for the lenses and two for LED flash.

Based on the report, HMD has a new prototype ready and it features the Penta-lens camera setup. The rumoured flagship Nokia phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. We still don’t know about the release date of the new Nokia phone but it’s likely that the phone would enter production in Spring, and it could be released later this year.

The rumour also adds that the Nokia 8 (2018) won’t arrive at MWC 2018 as it is yet to enter the mass production.
After so many rumours, Nokia will be at MWC to unveil the global variant of the Nokia 7 smartphone and Nokia 9 flagship phone with Snapdragon 835 processor. Anyways, what do you think about this device, do you think that it'll be dubbed Nokia 10 - hence the Nokia 9, 8, 7 are all set. Let us know via the comment box
