About this app

Attention : This theme is only for Samsung devices running Oreo and Pie (One Ui)

Substratum theme engine must be installed to use this application

Pitch-black S is the result of perfecting the art of materialism, considering the depths of minimalism and playing around with the most vibrant color combinations. As the name of the theme suggests, “PitchBlack” is a “dark” theme that works with dark and/or black backgrounds (the users get to choose!) which makes it battery-friendly for AMOLED devices.

Theme-sets and overlays

Pitchblack S ships with pre-curated theme sets with pairs of an accent and a background each.

Including more than 130 theme sets and 160 high-definition dark app overlays

Supported OS
• Samsung Pie OneUI (Works with Root or Synergy)
• Samsung Oreo 8.0/1


• Enable system Dark Mode if you are on One UI
• Launch substratum
• Tap on PitchBlack S tile
Select your android version
Select all and configure the selected apps with the required options there.(System apps must be selected, like Settings, Android System and SystemUI)

Absolutely beautiful theme for Samsung devices. Long time user of the Pitch Black themes on various phones. Recently upgraded to a Note 9, and immediately felt right at home with this theme. If you're like me, and need to have a black ui, this is the theme to get. The excellent quality of everything themed from the system to various apps truly shows. I highly recommend this theme !🙂

Loving this theme on my Note 10+. The only thing I don't like is when you theme device care the widget shows up totally black. If that could be fixed that'd be great. I know other themes have it totally white so you can see it and others are a darker color but still visible. Please fix on Galaxy Note10+. (Edit) can't wait til OneUI 2.0 is supported.

This app is amazing however there are many issues. 1) If you've installed a bunch of colors, it doesn't display what colors/options are downloaded, you have to go and select every single option just to see if it's installed on your device. It shows an icon that it's installed though 2) WhatsApp customization is broke, I chose a different speech bubble color and then saw that whenever a person fowards a quote reply, the quote reply background color is orange which I didn't choose at all 3) This isn't an issue but more of a suggestion, I hope you add custom Discord colors customization because the default color is Cyan Hopefully you read this as I love this substratum theme. thank you for making this ❤️
