So... Here we are again, the title says it all.
This is a quick (I spent 3 hours on it) backport of the Pixel Launcher P-4275643, extracted from the Pixel 2 images. I'ved tested it on my SHIELD Tablet, and as it wasn't working, I modded it so that it'd work just fine on any Android 6.0.1+ devices.

I have implemented the Google's signature verification patch, as according to this thread so that the application doesn't Force Close on launch, as well as all the goodies from the Pixel Launcher OMR1-4113793 v4 backport.

I've tested the application in my SHIELD Tablet running official LineageOS 13.0 nightlies, as well as in my Wileyfox Swift 2 with Android 7.1.2, and seems to be working like a charm when there's no substratum overlays enabled with latest Google Play Services installed.
However, like last time I'd like to roll call all of you to please, test it and report back with any issue you find.

NOTE:
- DO NOT MIRROR MY FILES, please.
- The background color of the App Drawer won't look blue in Samsung devices, like last times, as I fixed it to look white.
- The apk, like last time, has been signed with my own key, so uninstall any previous versions before installing this one ;)
- Bloggers! YouTubers! If you post links to this backport PLEASE, be sure NOT to make mirrors of it, and, it'd be awesome if you mentioned the original author in your blog posts.

First of all, thanks for the port!! Finally it works for Android 6 ??

I tried in my Blackview R6 (Mediatek chip), and it works good, but sometimes, the launcher crashes doing actions like making a folder in the main screen.

But I'm sure next updates will solve this problem (or maybe it's just me ??).... Thanks so much!

Thanks for your kind comment.
I know why this happens (notice that it only crashes when the pop-up menu that handles the DeepLinks hasn't fully opened yet), and I'm already working on bringing a fix to it.
Please, be patient! ;)

Thank you very much, was waiting for someone to fix the blue folder background on Samsung devices.
Only thing that doesn't work is the weather at the top (and yes, I enabled location permissions).

I supposed it was my device's fault since I don't have the Google app installed. But, it's probably related to this:

I'll need to investigate if it can get fixed.

Im having the same exact issue on my LG G Stylo. The clock widget looks like yours missing the time and date. I have stock 6.0 for android and funny enough the version made for 7.0+ works fine but also has the same issue with the click widget. I also notice in both that one the app tray is flicked open, smoothness goes out the door.. pretty choppy. I read in the other forum people with the Galaxy S8 were getting some choppy animations with the app tray open.

Found a bug: in my home screen, if I click an app icon and move it immediately (before the vibration, indicating that I'm moving that app), I return to my previously used launcher and that designation of my default launcher gets reset. Also no Google Now :)

Otherwise, it's working well. :)

I'm using Redmi Note 4 MTK, Android 6. Thanks for developing such a lightweight launcher :)

    I got tired of this. This port is supposed to stay as close to the original as possible, and not adding extra functionality or whatever else. I started doing this since Oreo Developer Preview 1, because I wanted it for myself and so that I was able to use it on my SHIELD Tablet running LineageOS 13. And then I decides to share it with the community for those who may want to give it a try, as many people in the APKMirror comment section were asking for it, that's it.

    All that being said, thread closed. It's a non-sense to keep it open.
