UNBOX YOUR PHONE
The all new GALAXY S8 from Samsung has arrived. This time around we introduce a phone that reinvents the concept of smartphone that we all know. The bezels, gone. The boundary of water, gone too! And the need of remembering text passwords, more than gone.

The new GALAXY features a whole new 18,5:9 Ratio Super AMOLED display, which stays bright in the dark too! We are also introducing a new set of colors, new stunning colors cover under the LLAMA GLASS 5, the most durable smartphone glass:


CORE FEATURES OF THIS SMARTPHONE:
  • Bright in the dark screen;
  • Thin body, won't look chubby on your sims' hands like the default one does;
  • Great selection of colors, EASY TO RECOLOR! Yes i actually allow it ;
  • Glossy finish, small details;
  • Actually curved edge screen, design based off completely from the original phone.

The mod will conflict with any other mod that change the game's smartphone!

POLYGON COUNT:

Medium lod (only LOD)
1288 polygons (1224 + 64)

Additional Credits:
Blender: Smartphone mesh creation with the amazing tools the app offers;
Paint.net: even if simple, it's smart enough to make great textures;
Samsung: for making such a great smartphone;

MXIMS @ Tumblr: Thanks for making a The Sims 4 Smartphone Package that is very easy to edit, with the textures all together in one swatch!

I like how it looks but does it work with the recolouring feature in the game? Not sure if you noticed, but on the phone menu there's a little icon (I think it was a wrench) which allows you to select your sim's phone case (each sim can have their own phone texture, so Sim A can have the default black phone whilst Sim B has a pink phone with darker pink polka dots.) What I'm asking here is that does this default work with this feature, because I prefer having some of my sims have a unique phone recolour.

I'm pretty sure this is not possible yet with custom smartphones, but whenever it's possible I'm surely posting an update!

Quite possible, actually. Adelin4504's Samsung Galaxy S3 does it.

I love this mod but it would be way better if you could put all the colours in it so we don't have to chose just one colour.

I'm trying to implement the custom colors too, but no success.
The colors are coded in the game.
