Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 8 last week. The company’s new flagship phablet has been well received, at least initially, and those who want one can now place their pre-orders for the handset. If they already own a Samsung phone that’s rooted, they can get Galaxy Note 8 apps while they wait for their new flagship to arrive in the mail.

The folks over at the XDA Developers forums have ported a total of 17 Galaxy Note 8 apps from the new handset. These apps can now be installed on any other Samsung smartphone that’s rooted and is running Android 7.0 Nougat.

Users will require a custom recovery to flash the .zip file these apps are contained in. This happens to trip the Samsung Knox security software and ends up voiding the device’s warranty. So be absolutely sure about what you’re doing before you install these apps.

The Galaxy Note 8 apps in this package include the handset’s native Calendar, Phone, Contacts, Browser, People Edge, S Finder, Smart Manager apps, among others. The company’s new camera app and the Always On Display are missing from this package but they might be added a bit later down the road.

The package with all of these Galaxy Note 8 apps is now available for download on the XDA forum.
