Why is there no option to remove icon frame borders on the new android pie update?

wow. really updated to get features most important removed. Now I have these ugly white frames around my icons and it's killing me to see, thanks samsung. I don't even want a theme either, I loved the default look, the pie update has ugly phone, gallery and so on icons too but I'm not here to complain about those. SIGH!

I found an icon pack called "Walk on Mars." It looks like your standard Android icons, but Without Borders. Although folders to still have borders. And it's free!

Thanks Darthur35. You saved my sanity. After days of searching & useless emails with Samsung support I stumbled on your post and 'Walk on Mars' fixed the icon frames issue on my S20 +5G SM-G986B. Brilliant!
I signed up to androidforums just so I could post this & thank you for solving a problem that Samsung was unwilling to solve.
